Cattlemans BBQ sauce Tue, 02/1/11 12:49 AM (permalink)
i just heard that cattlemans bbq sauce is/was the staple basic for virtually all bbq items in pretty much all places for quiet some time now, is that true ?
i have never tried it, but remember seeing it at my local store, apparently it use to be wholesale only? did they change the formula for mass market or is it pretty much the same as always ?

    Yes and No is the short answer. The foodservice product that's the original cattleman's sauce is really a catsup-like tasting base and not sold retail. It's meant to be augumented or incorporated in your own sauce and can't really stand on it's own as a true red BBQ sauce. They went retail with two or three different other sauces. I don't remember the original name of the Carolina gold sauce when it was originally foodservice, but a lot of restaurants also augumented that one too or used it the way it is. They've made a promise as of the introduction of the brand in retail to foodservice customers that the original base would never be available retail. So far they've made good on that promise.

        In a word, It's a lousy tasting sauce!

          There is a such vast difference  in North Carolina alone (east to west) in terms of what makes a sauce. Never mind a good sauce. You might be better served putting a topic up for a wider audience in the BBQ section or Misc. section.

            Cattlemans must have changed their wholesale recipe. I used the sauce in my deli, as is, and my customers went crazy over it.I ended up packaging and selling containers of it-especially the Carolina Gold. I didnt enhance it whatsoever.

                We use the Cattlemans Hickory Smoke bbq on a few of our burgers. Have not had any complaints and we sell quite a few. Not a bad bbq sauce as far as commercial sauces go unless you want to go for a high end sauce or make your own.
