This sauce was used on pulled pork that was cooked low and slow over cherry wood. The opinions are both mine and Will Breakstone’s, owner and pit-master of Willie B’s Award Winning BBQ.

I had heard of Demon Pig BBQ sauce in my varied meanderings through the world of BBQ but this was the first opportunity I’ve had to try the sauce. It won’t be the last. They have two sauces, one a regular, the second a spicy, orange sauce.

The aroma is very pleasing, with hints of both vinegar and citrus. The sauce itself is tomato based with a consistency between a K.C. and a Texas sauce. Although the sauce was looser than many tomato based sauces there was no problem with it adhering to the meat.

The strength of the taste would fall between a medium and a mild and the flavor had a nice lingering aspect to it. The sauce was surprisingly complimentary to the meat. Usually a tomato based sauce will change or add to the taste of what it is put on while this seemed to bring out the flavors that were already there. This seems to mimic the effects of the best vinegar sauces in heightening what is already there while bringing something new to the flavor profile.

The sauce comes in a glass 13oz bottle. The glass has a nice heft to it and the label is clean and distinct.

The best recommendation I can give for this sauce is that when I run out of what I currently have I’m going to be purchasing more immediately.

Must take something special to get that elusive 5th star.

Yes, it does. I've had sauces that I would give 5 stars, but those have been at competitions and once at a restaurant.

I'll keep searching though! It's like that elusive golden ticket.
