I discovered Haks BBQ sauce through a friend of mine that suggested I give it a try and see what I thought of it. Haks sauce comes in three flavors and they are all spicy, which for a BBQ sauce that is usually a good thing. I agreed to try them all after carefully researching to learn of the handling and attention to detail and quality that the sauces makers follow. I had to know if this sauce is like so many other BBQ sauces, which usually contain some sort of genetically modified ingredients (GMOs). After learning that Sharone Hakman’s sauce (Haks BBQ Sauce) does not use any GMO ingredients I agreed to give it a try.
First thing I noticed upon receiving my sample was the bottling of the sauce, it was exquisite and showed that quality assurance that I discovered on my own. It was clear this was no ordinary sauce. I observed three flavors, Habanero Pineapple, Chipotle Bourbon, and Thai Chile Tamarind. I am a fan of spicy foods, but the Habanero Pineapple was very spicy. In large quantities I doubt I would be a fan, however in small doses, it was not that bad, the taste was very good. I can say a good word about the balance as well, the sauce was probably the most well balanced sauce I have ever tried.
I tried the Habanero sauce on chicken and as a dip for fresh raw veggies, on the chicken it was just great. Next up I tried the Chipotle Bourbon. The family and I raise meat rabbits so we decided to give it a go on roasted rabbit, BBQ style. It turned out to be one of the best tastes I had ever had. The sauce was not too spicy and the flavor was outstanding, you can really tell that this sauce is made, as they state, in small batches with some high quality ingredients. The Thai Chili Tamarind, I really had a liking for, mostly because of the Asian influence, as I am an avid Asian food cook. However, the sauce blew it away, it was just wonderful on chicken and rabbit and as a flavor enhancer for a few Asian stir fry dishes.
I give Haks BBQ 5 stars on all their flavors. The sauce is just perfect and I believe that for the backyard BBQ you couldn’t go wrong using this sauce.
