A couple of months ago I won a bottle of KLB’s “That’s Good Mustard” BBQ Sauce in a Twitter giveaway. I finally had the chance to do a big product test cook this past weekend, so let’s take a look at this mustard sauce from South Carolina!
The BBQ sauce is the creation of Kevin Bobo. As a lot of you may know, a good portion of South Carolina is known for their mustard-based BBQ sauce, and Kevin’s creation embodies that style. The sauce claims to work on virtually any meat — chicken, pork, beef, venison, even mahi mahi!
The sauce comes in a 17 oz. bottle, so you definitely get your money’s worth from the bottle. It is a golden color, leaning more towards yellow that some other mustard-based BBQ sauces I have used. It pours out nice and thick, and you can easily see the various herbs and spices that are used throughout the sauce.
When I took a taste of the sauce, there was no doubt whatsoever that this was a mustard-based sauce. This sauce is really bold by itself. The mustard is predominant, but it isn’t completely mustard. The other spices help mellow out the sauce and take a little bit of the “zip” out of the sauce.
To the Meat of the Matter
Chicken. Lots of chicken. With my wife being out of town for the evening, I decided to do a product review test cook. Overall, I ended up using 6 chicken thighs and used 3 different sauces on the meat. The thighs were trimmed and seasoned with chicken seasoning from Bandiola Spice Co.
The thighs went on the 18 1/2″ Weber kettle grill where I grilled them for 10 minutes skin-side down. Then I turned them and applied the sauce. As you can see in the picture below, I reviewed three different sauces. You can probably guess which ones had the mustard-based sauce.
Twenty minutes later, I pulled the thighs off of the grill and let them sit for between 5 and 10 minutes. You can see below how the color of the sauce darkened some, and it looked quite nice on the meat.
I took a bite, and it was simply amazing! The mustard flavor blended perfectly into the chicken. No one particular spice overpowered another, and everything worked in perfect harmony. This sauce is the real deal!
The “That’s Good Mustard” BBQ Sauce can be ordered for $4.99 plus shipping from the company’s website (KLBFoods) at http://www.klbinc.ws/KLBs_BBQ_Sauce. If you are in the Charleston area, you can find this sauce at a few local retailers.
