5 Family Favorite BBQ Recipes & Giveaway

This post and giveaway is sponsored by Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q sauces.  

I had the very fortunate opportunity this month to review Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q Sauce.  We are definite BBQ lovers in our house (I come from a long line of grillers and slow cookers as you will see from the recipes below), so I was excited to try a new sauce. 

Honestly, the first thing I loved about Stubb’s (before even tasting it) was what I saw (or don’t see) on the ingredient label.  Most barbecue sauces start out by listing High Fructose Corn Syrup as the first ingredient (which typically means it is the ingredient with the highest amount included in the product).  With Stubb’s sauces, you won’t find the sweetener (which is real sugar) listed until the third or so line item.  Their products are all natural, gluten free, and do not contain artificial preservatives or colors.  (You can take a moment and compare Stubb’s with that standard condiment in the slideshow below.)  So, needless to say, I definitely felt good about trying them out with my whole family…including my BBQ lovin’ two-year-olds.  

And, after trying a few of the varieties, we were pleasantly surprised by the really great flavors as well!  We first tried Stubb’s Original recipe with my mom’s beloved pulled pork sandwiches, and I was reminded of one my absolute favorite BBQ joints from when we lived in the South.  The Original variety definitely has an authentic flavor that we all loved.  (My toddlers even dipped their sweet potato tots in the sauce.  Can’t beat that!)  We also tried the Hickory Bourbon (which gives my dad’s recipe a run for it’s money…see below) and the Sweet Heat with my all-time favorite BBQ Quesadillas.  We were not disappointed!

So, if you’re looking for some great summertime BBQ recipes, check out our favorites below.  Each has it’s own flavor personality and I’ve made my recommendations for a Stubb’s pairing.  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway (end of the post) so you can get your hands on a bottle of your own delicious Stubb’s sauce!

  4. Found you on Saturday Show and Tell, the Quesidillas look so yummy, can’t wait to try them, I am also following you now :-) Would love it if you checked out and if you like it follow my blog! http://notsoaverage.weebly.com

  5. roasted barbeque chicken. it always goes over big in our house (and we love stubbs… my dh and his mom have a ongoing disagreement on which is better stubbs or sweet baby rays. its pretty amusing!)

    • We too know this debate…but we’re leaning Stubb’s after comparing labels. :) Great idea with the roasted chicken. We’ve done the can stand roasted chicken on the grill before. It would be delicious with some BBQ!

  6. I love bbq pulled pork sandwhiches.

  7. Yummy! I have to try those BBQ Cups. They look fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the Weekend Wonders Party!! Hope you have a great day!
