Trying to make you enjoy barbecue sauce as much as we do

Hoosier Daddy Sweet & Sassy Barbecue Sauce

Following my interview on BBQ Sauce Reviews, Kimberlee Foy from Hoosier Daddy kindly sent me her sauce.
I was really curious to taste it, because it’s a kind of a hybrid between a tomato-based and a mustard-based barbecue sauce… and I admit I’ve never tasted mustard-based barbecue sauce !

It’s quite different from what I’ve tasted so far. This sauce is not really smokey and vinegarish, but rather sweet, fresh and fruity. If you close your eyes when it’s on your tongue, you almost have the feeling to eat jam – that’s maybe due to the peach nectar.
It has a nice deep orange/red color but it would have been great to see some chunks. The sauce is rather liquid without being watery.

The sauce is a good dipping sauce but also great when heated: I basted some ribs with it and it resulted in a nice caramel layer, I also tried it warm on a ham steak and I really enjoyed it.

I also like the flip-top and squeezable bottle – that’s handy to avoid wasting too much sauce.

There’s a cool story behind the sauce: “Hoosier” is the demonym for a resident of Indiana, where Kimberlee’s family is from. She wanted to keep the memory of her father alive and decided to produce a sauce based on her father’s secret recipe (“Daddy”).
Furthermore, a portion of the proceeds is donated to various organizations such as cancer research, diabetes and autism.

Their new sauce “Ghost Roast” has been launched lately, can’t wait to taste it !
