Daddy Sam’s Bar-B-Que Sawces are Boldly Natural & Allergy-Friendly


Believe it or not, all natural barbecue sauces can be hard to come by.  Luckily, there are companies like Daddy Sam’s who understand the importance of a high quality bar-b-que. They’ve stood the test of time with their classic, bold line of sauces and marinades. We first posted about this brand back in 2006, and they’re still packing jars of their original recipes.

Daddy Sam’s Bar-B-Que Sawces are Boldly Natural & Allergy-Friendly

Daddy Sam’s has grown into even more than barbecue sauce, offering a variety of sauces and glazes.

Original Barbeque Sawce

This barbeque “sawce” is made without a single artificial ingredient, and the taste proves it.  As a true fan of barbecue sauce, I was not a bit shy around this product.  We tried it on organic chicken, burgers, sausages, and yes, I even roasted some potatoes in it.  It was fantastic on everything, and tasted like a recipe that had been passed down through the generations.  Daddy Sam’s Original is a rich, smoky sauce with a touch of spice.  However, it is still a safe bet for those who are a bit timid around heat.  As an added bonus, it is free from the top seven allergens.  Like most sauces, Daddy Sam’s is a touch high in sugars and sodium, but with these bold flavors, a little goes much further than expected.

Recommended For:

  • Barbecues, Big & Small
  • Dipping
  • Chicken wings

Salmon Glaze

Although I would still describe Daddy Sam’s Salmon Glaze as a barbeque sauce, it was free of the “ketchup-like” flavor found in traditional barbecue sauces. To taste, it was bold (from the intensity of molasses), slightly sweet (plain old-fashioned sugar), and a touch spicy (with notes of cayenne and jalapeno). Although these were the most predominant flavors, the ingredient list on this Salmon Glaze reads like a spice rack.

Health seekers and flavor fans alike will be pleased to see that natural turmeric, garlic, ginger, and onion made the cut.  In sticking with the title recommendation, our first trial was on salmon. Once cooked, Daddy Sam’s was actually quite mellow; a definite benefit, as it didn’t overpower the taste of the fish itself.  Our second taste test was as a quick glaze for shrimp served over a bed of rice.  It went quite well, and was in fact our top choice for usage.  Everyone felt that the molasses undertones blended seamlessly.  Overall, for roasting or backyard grilling, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Daddy Sam’s as a “glaze” for white meat, salmon and other seafood, as well as for vegetables (particularly potatoes).

Recommended For:

  • Roasting & Grilling
  • Glaze for Salmon, White Fish, Shrimp, and Chicken
  • Flavor Boost to Roasted Potatoes
  • “Refined” BBQ Sauce Stand-In

Ginger Jalapeno Barbeque Sawce

We tried their Hot Barbeque Sawce, which was delicious and fiery! In our house this “Sawce” was the perfect combination of barbecue (for myself) and hot (for my husband) to keep everyone happy. But they have replaced that flavor with Ginger Jalapeno.

Fantastic barbecue sauce

Rated 5 out of 5
July 11, 2020

Barbecue sauce is a staple in our house and both my husband and I loved this. The taste and the ingredients are great. The price is a bit out of budget for us to purchase regularly. But for a treat or even a gift for a grill fanatic is perfect.
