Imperial Apple Barbecue Sauce

Imperial Apple Barbecue Sauce
By Born To Hula

Imperial Apple Barbecue Sauce with Turkey Burgers
Imperial Apple Barbecue Sauce is a Applewood Smoked Habanero All Natural BBQ Sauce. It has a really great Apple flavor due to its unique ingredient, Berentzen Apple Liqueur imported from Deutschland. This BBQ sauce was first used by us on turkey burgers. We chose turkey due to the initial straight tasting that led us to envision a great pairing with chicken or turkey. The Apple fruit flavors in the BBQ Sauce went well with the turkey burgers and sweet potato fries we made(pictured). We also have had Imperial Apple Barbecue Sauce on chicken strips, pork chops, and mozzarella sticks. All these combos worked very well. As a dipping sauce for both regular and sweet potato fries, the sauce added a nice mild kick and lots of flavor. You should definitely try this sauce on not only your burgers, but your sweet potato fries. This sauce has a nice smooth smokiness in its flavor profile. Imperial Apple Barbecue Sauce offers a nice blend of apple flavors, smokiness, and the medium bite of the Habaneros.

The Imperial Apple Barbecue Sauce is great on burgers
We are big fans of sauces created by Born To Hula, a company that is local to us and based in NJ. Imperial Apple comes reasonably priced and in a 12 oz bottle. In regards to heat, it has medium heat so the whole family can enjoy it. It is also still is a pleaser for heat-seekers, having the medium but enjoyably spicy heat of the Applewood Smoked Habaneros. Some of the other wonderfully chosen ingredients are vine ripened tomatoes, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, Berentzen apple liqueur, garlic, smoked paprika, onion powder, dried mustard and salt. This is another nicely blended sauce by Chef Ed Bucholtz.

Briggs True Texarribean Rub with Chicken

Briggs True Texarribean Rub with Chicken

Chicken with Bell Peppers and Wild Rice made with Briggs True Seasoning
For this dinner we used Briggs True Texarribean Citrus Pepper Seasoning on Chicken Breast Strips and Sweet Bell Peppers. As advertised, it paired perfectly with both the chicken and the vegetables. The Texarribean Rub can be used as a cooking rub and also as a  seasoning for your home cooked foods. Texarribean has no GMO's and is Gluten Free also. The rub and seasoning profile is a southern style rub with a fusion of zesty Caribbean flavors. The aroma of the rub alone is pleasing, and kicked up the chicken with the end result being extremely satisfying. The chicken ended up with flavors that had a mix of Texas and Trinidad blended together. The taste was not overpowering and we suggest you use a generous amount of the rub on your chicken before cooking it.

Seasoned Chicken Breast Strips cooking rubbed in Texarribean

Some of the ingredients that add to the all around goodness of Texarribean are lemon peel, orange peel, natural lime powder, spices, spice extracts, black pepper, salt, garlic and sugar. When using Texarribean you need not add any other seasonings as this rub has got it all in one jar. The rub is rated by Briggs as 2 out of 5 Peppers on the spice level. That means some people that cannot handle really hot rubs can enjoy this with no problem. Great for fans of TRUE Spices for your meal. More coverage of Briggs products, both sauces and rubs will be upcoming on our blog in the near future. We are very pleased with the 3 rubs we are currently using.
