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.
