Buyer's guide

Buy according to how you plan to use the sauce. A tomato-based barbecue sauce is a good all-purpose sauce, vinegar-based sauces are ideal for marinating meat, and those with a mustard base are perfect with beef or pork.

Storage

Store in the refrigerator. Use within four weeks of opening.

Preparation

Barbecue sauces are used for brushing the surface of the meat before grilling, added to the pan at the end of cooking, or served at the table for dipping or topping food. Do not heat the sauce for too long, as it may separate or burn.
