What's your favorite BBQ Sauce? I like a lot of sauces but Bone Suckin' is my favorite.

You have good taste, 3 olives! I love Bone Suckin' also, and we're so lucky to have it readily available in our state.
 
This past summer I went on a baked BBQ chicken marathon - made it about once a week for a couple of months. But, I started making my own sauce, from scratch, a little different each time = BBQ chicken heaven!

For me it's definitely the ambrosial sauce found at the Ridgewood BBQ in Bluff City TN. I've never tasted any other quite like it.

I will agree that Bone Suckin' is near the top for me, as well. However, I've finally found the BBQ sauce for chicken that I've been looking for my whole life: Rub Some Butt Carolina Style BBQ Sauce. I've been grilling and Q-ing for 40 of my 49 years on this planet and THIS is the one!
 
I had some bone-in breasts on the charcoal a few nights ago, rubbed with Bone Suckin' Rub and with some hickory chips on the coals, and applied the sauce liberally during the last 15 minutes of cooking. The whole family loved it and we finished half a bottle of the sauce in one sitting! It has this yummy, savory flavor that's to die for, but it's not overly mustard-y and has a nice sweetness to it. It's almost like a honey mustard, but different, and obviously made for Q with equal flavors of mustard, sugar and vinegar. In a word, perfection!
 
If anyone else has tried this sauce, let me know. Would love to hear opinions. (No, I don't work for the company:)

I usually make my own, but recently, a colleague passed along a jar of Arthur Bryant's sauce, and that stuff is unbelievably strong; not sweet, and not overly hot.; just packed with flavor.
I also like Bone-Suckin' sauce if I don't have time to make my own and want something a little sweet.

I don't like sweet either or 'honey' BBQ sauces.       I bought a Cattleman sauce a couple months ago.  It was great and had lots of spices. I could see large specks of pepper in it.    It was labeled as 'Southern'.   I used it up and thew the bottle away.    When I went to get more the store shelf was empty.  I was told by the store, it was a limited edition sauce.     ... Cattlemans is unable to tell what the sauce was.
 
I also like Williamson Brothers as Big Frank pointed out.   I do add a little extra cider vinegar and a lot of black pepper.

Williamson Brothers is very good and is made to be put on almost any kind of meat.
Jomax BBQ in Millen Ga. also has a good sauce.
Fresh Air BBQ in Jackson Ga. at one time also had a very good sauce for pork.

Desert Sunset's a good one, too.
 
I don't buy sauce too often because I generally receive enough as gifts to keep the cupboard stocked, but if I do I buy Stubb's locally and Head Country when I'm in Arkansas.

Actually, it's "Southern Sunset", our tribute to the Southern Style, vinegar based sauces.
 
But I do like the name "Desert Sunset".  Now I have to create a new sauce to go along with it.  Hmm, anyone up for a cactus based Barbecue Sauce?

P.S.  When not using my own sauces, I'm partial to "Blues Hog Tennessee Red Sauce" or their 'Honey Mustard" Sauce.

More often than not I make my own, even my white sauce, but when I don't I kind of like Bulls Eye's offerings. They have quite a decent line of sauces (Memphis, Carolina, Kansas City and original) and they're pretty tasty. I also like that they don't have high fructose corn syrup in them. That's always a deal breaker with me.

I pass on all the mustard based sauces...just not a fan of the finely chopped-slaw mixed Carolina pre-sauced BBQ.
Bryants is good, Roadhouse, the samples I tried I liked, but don't have locally available.
 
I prefer any sauce to be a last minute brush on during the charring stage of the meat cooking, then a dipping cup of hot (temperature) sauce beside the 'Naked Meat'

Cosmos Dinosaur BBQ Sensuous Slathering Sauce is my favorite.

I think I've mentioned it already, but I'm too lazy to look backwards. I have found that the Dinosaur is pretty much the lowest in sugar of any mass marketed non-artificially sweetened barbecue sauce, which is sufficient to make it my sauce of choice.

I've been using Sweet Baby Ray's as a base to make my own sauces. Now, with my diet, though, sauce has been sacrificed temporarily. yesterday I smoked a rack of baby backs in my Traeger with a dry rub. Last night I went through a ton of recipes trying to find a low fat, low sugar BBQ sauce. I think I'm gonna try and make my own because I can't seem to find a decent one or recipe.

Yep, it does.  In 40 years I have never even noticed that.  LoL
 
I grew up with Scott's and it is a good pantry item.

Pro Tip:
 
If you find a recipe that you think you'll like, don't worry if it calls for fat, oil, or sugar.  Make it without the offending ingredients.  If I ever look at sauce recipes, it's usually for ideas rather than a specific list of things to dump in a pot.  Take the basic premiss of a recipe and modify it as you please.

That's the way I cook, which is why I said I looked at a ton of recipes. What I'm trying to find is what I can substitute for the brown sugar, molasses, etc. without sacrificing flavor. I usually look at a lot of recipes so I can take the best elements  (such as a particular herb, spice or technique) and combine them to create my own.

It certainly was interesting smoking the pork baby backs on Wednesday. They were definitely flavorful with the dry rub I concocted, but it would have been nice to have some barbecue sauce to dip them in too. 
Even at Joel's BBQ in Flatonia, Texas, they put a little sauce on the brisket sandwich. Maybe you do things different in the big city?

Hi Gang..aint been round here in a spell.
 
couldnt resist chiming in though..
 
My favorite "bottled sauce" if I had to choose would be "Sticky Fingers"(carolina sweet style, they have others).
It IS a sweeter sauce.. a little zingy, not smoky or vinager-y.. very awesome IMO.
(for  reference -sweet baby rays was my goto bottled sauce..but this Sticky fingers is my new "baby" sorry Ray. ;) )
 
 
I'd give it a try..if I were..me..or anyone.

If I were going to use a sauce (most often I don't), I would use Scott's Red Hot, Bishop's 3 'N' 1 Stuff, Calhoun's, or Stick Fingers Tennessee Whiskey.  If I use one, it's for dipping on the side or drizzling -- not immersing or smothering.

Ed, that BBQ sandwich looks delicious! Actually, they do use sauce in "Big D". It's mostly in Central Texas that sauce is generally eschewed.
 
Personally, I've always enjoyed a little well made sweet ketchup based sauce or a Carolina style vinegar based sauce as a condiment with my BBQ.
