Here on the Central Coast of California, the BBQ Pit Masters have always used the Non Sauce method. If you have to use sauce, you obviously have to cover something up. It’s saying that you are not confident in your BBQ art form. Barbecuing should bring out this amazing flavor in your meat, especially your beef, if it is done correctly. Just the right amount of salt and some other seasonings can help cook the perfect steak.
Using sauce along with pork ribs or pork sausage is tasty. However it does add more sugar to your diet and is not good for diabetics. Just something to keep in mind when choosing great BBQ. And, Santa Maria BBQ is the best!
