Best Barbecue
Sauces & Rubs

It's nice to know that chef, author and TV personality Steven Raichlen isn't just slapping his name on his BBQ sauce—it's really good stuff.

Not only did we find this Barbecue Chipotle Molasses to be a tasty topping on our grilled burgers, but we were also glad to see that it did not char or burn (as lower-quality sauces do) while spending excessive time exposed to flame.

This tomato-based sauce walks the line between sweet and hot, but never cloying or off-putting. We’re looking forward to trying it on other hearty molasses-friendly dishes, like ribs and baked beans. You can also try Raichlen's Cabernet barbecue sauce, which is perfect when pairing your meal with great barbecue wines
