Can I just reappear with no other explanation other than I have been busy? (I know. We all are :)
A couple of months ago I was preparing for Summer and came up with an idea/activity.
Thru the years we have periodically changed BBQ sauces as we have tried new ones. (Not too often.) We really like the bottled sauce we use now. SO, I decided to try a BBQ sauce experiment as part of our big Sunday dinner. (We also had my Uncle and Aunt in town that night on their way to the MTC.)
I started by buying 5 BBQ sauces. They were ones that we had used before, or another family member had used before or I had good things about. I bought bottles that were about the same size, and all were the original flavour. Then I "brown bagged" each sauce with a lunch bag and jute, and numbered them from 1-5.
The activity was a hit. Everyone tried, commented and voted :)
These were the 5 that I bought. (I listed them on a card in alphabetical order.)
#1 Bull's Eye
#2 Famous Dave's
#3 KC Masterpiece
#4 Open Pit
#5 Sweet Baby Ray's
There were about 20 people for dinner that day. When all was said and done, I was surprised by the results. The one we use was by far the winner. Her are our results.
#1 SWEET BABY RAY'S - WINNER
#2 KC Masterpiece
#3 Bull's Eye (We used to use this.
#4 Open Pit
#5 Famous Dave's (My Aunt liked this one best, and this is what they use :) We liked it the least.)
It was an easy and fun way to start the BIG BBQ season.
We would love to hear which BBQ sauce you use.
