Bone Suckin' Thicker Style BBQ Sauce, Yaki, and Beef Jerky Review

Well, the banner says it all, but I am going to tell you more.

First of all, did you know Bone Suckin' makes more then just BBQ sauces.  Boy do they!  Bone Suckin' creates a wide selection of products including, Yaki, Salsas, Mustard, Hot Sauce, Seasoning & Rubs and even Beef Jerky. 

They were kind enough to send me out three of their handcrafted products to review.

I want to start by saying, my darling husband can get stuck in a rut when it comes to trying new things.  If he has had a negative experience with one product flavor, no matter what brand it is, he doesn't want to try it ever again.

Thanks to Bone Suckin' Yaki....he will never say he doesn't like Teriyaki Sauce again.  Prior to sampling Yaki, I normally felt most Teriyaki sauces are overly sweet and not one of my top picks of sauces.  Yaki totally broke out of this mold!!!  Yaki is out of this world GOOD!  It is not too sweet and has a nice balance with the complex flavors of Italian Balsamic Vinegar and Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  I even caught a hint of one of my favorite spices, garlic.

A "perfect blend of Organic and All Natural Ingredients".

We used the Yaki on grilled pork chops.  It was amazing!  The Yaki caramelized on the chops and our boys enjoyed using what little was left in the bottle as a dipping sauce for the chops.  Everyone wanted to know when we were going to get more Yaki.

Along with our delicious Yaki pork chops, we prepared half of them with Bone Suckin' Thicker Style BBQ Sauce.  As you can see by the chops on the lower section of the picture.   

I loved the thicker texture of this sauce.  It made it very easy to control the pour, plus the mason jar design of the bottle was very helpful.

Bone Suckin' Sauce is tomato based and slightly sweet.  I loved that I could see the spices throughout the sauce, especially the onion.  The flavor profile was nice and mild, with made it a family hit for my young boys.  There is a reason why they call this "Bone Suckin'."  Trust me you will not want to miss a drop, anywhere. 

Bone Suckin' also sent me out a package of their Bone Suckin' Beef Jerky.  The jerky is handmade by the Cow Creek Band of Indians in Oregon .  It is an all natural jerky flavored with natural hardwood smoke that has no nitrites or preservatives.  I was surprised how many piece came in the package.  The flavor and texture reminds me of old fashioned jerky.  It is very lean and firm.  I loved the mixes of spices used, but had a hard time tearing a bite off.  Maybe it is just my old teeth.

I will leave you with the history of Bone Suckin' and don't forget you can follow Bone Suckin on Facebook or Twitter.

"Phil Ford, a real estate appraiser and father of four in Raleigh, North Carolina, developed his sauce around 1987 while trying to copy his mother's recipe for a western North Carolina-style barbecue sauce. The resulting all natural, fat-free, fragrant blend includes: tomato paste, apple cider vinegar, honey, molasses, mustard, horseradish, lemon juice, onions, garlic, peppers, natural hickory smoke, natural spices and salt."

"Folks kept telling him that he needed to do something with the sauce - like bottle it and sell it! People loved it when he gave it away, but Phil never thought anyone would pay for his sauce. His sister-in-law, Sandi Ford, owner of Ford's Fancy Fruits & Gourmet Foods in Raleigh, had years of experience in the gourmet food business and had other thoughts, She encouraged him to no avail. Then finally in September 1992, Sandi and her husband, Lynn, told Phil they'd like to be his partners in bringing his sauce to market. He'd make it and they'd give it a name and sell it. While driving to Charleston, South Carolina a short time later, Sandi was preoccupied with the task of coming up with a name. She thought about how go-o-o-d it was and how it made her do something she'd never done before -- suck on the bones to get the last little bit of flavor. A name was born and the sauce was launched in November, 1992." article by L. Harrell
