CLOSED ~ Herman T's BBQ Sauce Mix Review and Giveaway

It's summertime and, at our house, that means fresh veggies and grilling out on the BBQ! During summer we grill out at least 3 or 4 times a week. When I got the opportunity to review Herman T's BBQ Sauce Mix, I was thrilled. I am always on the lookout for new products to try and we are BBQ sauce fiends in this household.

A little about Herman T’s BBQ Sauce Mix first: Herman's T's BBQ Sauce was created by Herman T Jones back in the 1950’s. Over the years, Herman T would share his sauce with anyone who would stop by the house. Flavored with the sweetness of honey and a touch of Smokey apple wood, this sauce became a huge hit. As time would go on, he finally passed his recipe on to his Grandson Brian, who then recreated the recipe for mass production. Now today, Chef Brian has turned his Grandfather famous sauce into Herman T’s BBQ Sauce Mix. While keeping all of the essential ingredients intact, this sauce mix is sure to make your mouth dance.
Herman T's BBQ sauce is a dry powder mix. All you need to do is add water and ketchup and heat it. That's it. It is so easy. I received 2 packages of of the sauce mix. One spicy and one mild. I tried the mild one because hubby doesn't like his BBQ too spicy. But I do!

It was so easy. I took 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of ketchup and a tablespoon of the mix. That was it. And in less than 5 minutes, I had fresh BBQ sauce. And it was really delicious. I have to admit, I wasn't sure how it would taste because I have never used a dry powder mix to make BBQ sauce but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the sauce.

The sauce was more on the vinegary side as far as BBQ sauces go. I like that. Hubby likes his sauces sweeter but he really enjoyed this one. I made grilled chicken and basted it at the end of the cooking and then we poured the sauce on at the end, it was that good. We are picky about BBQ sauce so I was glad we both enjoyed it.

I would recommend this sauce to anyone. It also has less calories than the grocery store stuff. It is made with an all natural mix of powders that contain no MSG or other chemicals. Also one pouch will make up to 3/4 gallons of sauce. That is a lot of sauce for the price! And if you want to get crazy, you can doctor it up. The next time I use Herman T's, instead of the water, I am trying beer. I think it will have a really good taste. I also used the BBQ powder as a dry rub on the chicken before I grilled it. Overall, Herman T's is some finger licking good stuff! I can't wait to grill out again!!

You can buy Herman T's sauce on the website. One pouch is $7.95 and 2 are $15.00!

  27. Some time in the 1950's Herman T used his creative science mind and developed a very unique BBQ Sauce that he believed would be the perfect compliment to any beef, fish, chicken or sausage. He believed that the perfect sauce should be able to stand by itself and should always be an addition to any meal.
