Three Little Pigs Kansas City Sweet BBQ Sauce
Delivering on a promise made by the aroma, this sauce starts out like a spoonful of sugar. It has the tongue coating consistency of corn syrup, but the flavor doesn’t follow suit. There’s a molasses depth behind the sugar, and a bright and fruity tomato ketchup base. These three upfront flavors begin to mingle with a tart vinegar after a few seconds on the tongue. Things get more complex as Worcestershire makes an appearance, quickly followed by garlic and onion, adding extra bite and texture. Finally, a nice heat rounds thing out right at the end, but the sugar never really backs down, making the final aftertaste one that’s primarily sweet and sugary, with a little tanginess still remaining.
