Crucials Brazilian BBQ Sauce

I purchased Crucials Brazilian BBQ Sauce from my local pound shop and thought It would be worth a try.

The texture of Crucials Brazilian BBQ Sauce quite gloopy and slightly unnatural looking.  A very smooth sauce with no bits or chunks.

Pretty generic barbecue sauce flavour here: sweet, smoky, strong  tomato. There is a small amount of fruity tang that brightens up the sauce, but this is really only detectable when eating a very small amount and generally gets lost among the other strong barbecue sauce flavours.  I can’t detect any heat here which is quite disappointing considering it’s meant to be spiced with jalapeno peppers.

Calling this sauce Brazilian is questionable, but then again what is a traditional Brazilian barbecue sauce – care to let me know?  Encona recently put out an Encona Brazilian BBQ sauce which I thought was great since it was really quite different to other generic barbecue sauces.

A good sauce to put out for children at a barbecue, or for folks that just like a mild sweet barbecue sauce.  This isn’t a bad sauce, I just wish Crucials would have been a bit more bold with the Brazilian flavour (mangos) and jalapeno heat. There are plenty of barbecue sauces out there, and I’d certainly never reach for this one if I had the choice.

Pulled Pork made with Byron’s Butt Rub

Pulled Pork is one of those foods that I only first found out about after watching countless episodes of Man Vs Food, and then discovered that it’s quite hard to come across in the UK since it being primarily a US dish.  Pulled Pork has started to catch on in the UK and is becoming quite the trend, especially with burger restaurants adding it as a topping to gourmet burgers.
