TMF: Ending the Summer Sauced

Sauces and marinades are the unsung heroes of every good meal . Sure, they rarely get remembered in next-day reminiscences of “oh, we had chicken”, but they are the tangy, salty, briny, magical reasons why that chicken experience is worth recounting in the first place. (If you’re a frequent dieter, you’re already familiar with what a resounding no an unseasoned chicken breast is.)

Lucky for us, our latest batch of influencer content focuses on some seriously lust-worthy sauce recipes. Capping off the summer with bland meals? Not if these guys can help it.

First up, is a delicious and almost shamefully easy Red Wine and Chipotle Ketchup BBQ Sauce from Nate D.

“This smoky, grown-up BBQ sauce takes the typical backyard get-together up a notch. Best of all, it comes together fast with ingredients you probably already have around” he promises.


Next, check out this Pineapple BBQ Sauce crowd-pleaser from Chris L.

Most good sauces work by teasing your taste buds with the two seemingly opposing tastes, and this one is no exception. The combo of sweet, tangy pineapple and deep, spicy Worcestershire sauce really ups the ante on your dinnertime plans.

We’re picturing this on pork chops, but chicken, shrimp, or even zucchini could definitely benefit from a dollop as well.

Finally, there’s this Bourbon Stout BBQ Sauce from Jennifer M. 

If you’re drooling right now, you. are. not. alone.

We’re in the process of trying to rearrange our weekend plans right now just to make sure this beauty somehow makes it onto the itinerary. Sriracha + stout beer + bourbon + a handful of our other favorites ON TOP OF A BURGER? Excuse us, we’re crying tears of joy at the prospect.

So, which one of these bad boys will you be whipping up for your next family cook-out? And what else is on the menu? Share every delish detail in the comments below.
