It’s rarely a good idea to mess with perfection. But Mike “Ogre” Weeks already did it once when he tweaked his grandma’s barbecue sauce recipe and created Ogre Sauce — an all natural, preservative-free sauce with no high fructose corn syrup that’s not quite like any regionally-based sauce we’ve had. So it was only a matter of time before he tweaked it again. And the result is a gift to all of us who like to sweat a bit when we’re eating our ‘cue.
Not that Ogre HOT is a barbecue-exclusive sauce. On the contrary, it’s ridiculously versatile. Fans have written in with literally dozens of uses for it, from meatloaf to pizza to salmon to grilling bacon and everything in between. The secret? It’s a blend of three different styles of sauce. You’ll taste the vinegar from Eastern North Carolina, the tomato from Western NC, and mustard and honey from South Carolina. With Ogre HOT, they’ve added a pinch of Carolina Reaper — the world’s hottest pepper — to the classic formula. It adds heat without overwhelming the Ogre flavor beloved by fans nationwide. If you like it hot, you’re gonna love it.
A little Ogre can add pizzazz to any meal, whether it’s smoked pork barbecue or a veggie plate. But after trying it, we get the feeling you’re going to need a lot of it. Order more at www.ogresauce.com.
