    Johny Harris and Cary Hilliard out of Savannah are pretty close to one another and not sweet.

    The Heinz Carolina is tangy but a hint of sweet.

    The easiest way not to have a vinegar sauce with no sweet is to make it because it is not common. People apparently like sweet sauce and that is what the makers churn out.

    How much are you paying for that jar of RT?

    It is always pretty expensive here compared to everything else on the shelf.

    RT has some good rub that I have used in the past but I cannot find it on the shelf now.

    There is a place named Bill's Barbecue north of Athens in Hull that has (or used to have) a good Carolina sauce, the best of the type I've had in GA. Time gets away, I have not been in there in a number of years.

    I can't stand any of the bottled sauces I tried. All of them were way too sweet and taste mostly after cheap vinegar. I only make my own: lots of white onion, tomatos, garlic, habanero, smoked porkbelly, molasses and some herbs.

    Frighteningly, even though I've lived in KC my whole life, I just made it to the original Bryant's for the first time a couple weeks ago. I thought it was good, although the meat is quite a bit fattier than just about any other BBQ joint I've ever been to.

    If you make it back to KC anytime soon, you might want to try a new place called Q39. They probably do the best overall job on BBQ of anyone here, including their side dishes.

    I went Bryant's once and thought the same as you. My absolute favorite slab of ribs is at Rosedale's on Southwest Blvd. Consistently fall apart tender...none of this ridiculous "tug" nonsense...:D I'll check out Q39!

    I agree but they don't carry it many places now. None actually except Wal Mart.

    Y’all are kiddin’ right? Current favorite comes out of an old gas station in Kansas City.
    If ever in town, you must check ‘em out (or order sauce online from their website).

    Or, then there’s Shorty & Little’s “Jones Bar-B-Q” also K.C. / Google ‘em.

    Had “The Q” from coast-to-coast, but cut my teeth on Moonlite Bar-B-Q… out of Owensboro Kentucky.

    sweet baby rays thinned out with some apple cider vinegar. (Heat up the sauce on the stove to cook off some of the edge on the vinegar)

    I actually have some leftover ribs from Rosedale in the fridge right now:) It's my daughters favorite place. Q39's burnt ends are fantastic, and my daughter loves the pulled pork there too.
    My favorite place for brisket is Danny Edwards, but it's a bit difficult to get there some days since they close at 3.

    Yeah, my WalMart in SLC doesn't have it anymore. I had to get some Sweet Baby Rays Hickory and Brown Sugar which is ok. Last time I saw KC's was a two-pack at Costco or SAMs Club.
