Even after the snow falls, grill masters and barbecue fans can take comfort in their stores of Grandville’s Gourmet BBQ Sauce—one of the best lines of sauce and one of our top three picks of the thousands of products tasted in dozens of categories at this summer’s Fancy Food Show (the specialty food industry’s premier event).

What makes Grandville’s different? Ingredients, consistency and quality. Check the ingredients list of most bottled barbecue sauces and you’ll find variations on the theme of corn syrup, tomato paste, vinegar, molasses, sugar/brown sugar and seasonings—salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, liquid smoke, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco®, lemon juice, et al. They’re generally very sugary: you would not likely do anything but baste meat with them. Grandville’s is packed with minced onions, bell peppers, chilies, garlic cloves, and, depending on the flavor, pineapple and other real fruits, vegetables, and herbs. This fresh bounty of nature provides the deep texture and memorable taste of Grandville’s sauces.

Grandville’s bills their sauces as “the thickest, chunkiest BBQ sauces on the planet.” They have a consistency between a dessert sauce and a jam—think of them not as something drippy, but as “barbecue jam.” The sauces are packed with so many good things, you might want to use them for other purposes too.
