The strong bite of garlic is added to the fresh tomato sauce flavor of the Goode Co. sauce, but I was left trying to figure out where the jalapeno was and what barbecue I'd actually want to put this on.

An immense amount of sugar defines this sauce as sickly sweet, but a little tartness and smoke give it body out of the jar, though that also creates an off-balance after being grilled.

Blue Hog Honey Mustard BBQ Sauce retains the great layers of flavor of it's tomato-based brothers, but the pungent mustard overpowers those waves of vinegar, Worcestershire, garlic, and pepper possibly to a fault.

Peppered Duck Breasts with Cherry-Port Sauce

Peppered Duck Breasts with Cherry-Port Sauce

Ever since figuring out how to get a fairly crisp-skinned, medium-rare duck breast on the the grill, they've become a more regular part of my grilling routine.

Soy sauce dominates a little too heavily in this sauce, drowning out the layers of flavor that sit beyond it, leaving a sauce that's out of balance and overpowering.
