Cattlemen's Classic BBQ Sauce Question

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
This cheap store bought sauce is actually my favorite style of sauce. Does anyone have a recipe for the sauce or something similar? Thanks!

I don't, but I do agree with you. Cattlemans is good stuff. If I have to buy any sauce this is it. Especially the Smokehouse flavor.

Have you tried Jeff's Sauce? It's what I use most of the time. Then smoke it for a few hrs. Adds a great smoke flavor.

If I'm using store bought BBQ Sauce its Cattleman's

Me too, I prefer the classic. we used to use all the time when I was a kid, back when it was in the round glass bottle. tastes pretty good on the BBQ mixed with a beer for mopping.

I don't see it here, so I use KC Masterpice and add brown sugar, terryaki, garlic powder, cayanne, etc.

Don't be ashamed of using commercial sauces for a base, and kick it up, I did that in my restaurant for 8 years and it got me a place in Bon Appetit" hard cover book. Of couurse I didn't reveal that to them for many reasons.icon_evil.gif

Hey AudioX. I've been wondering about the Cattleman's and if it was any good. I'll give it a try. I remember seeing it at Gordon Food Service (GFS)in Evansville. If you're not familiar with GFS, you need to get familiar with GFS. They sell Institutional size product at wholesale prices. They have locations in Avon and Greenwood. If I remember right, they sell it by the gallon, real cheap ($7-$8)??

If you are going to use pre made sauce.
Cattlemen's or KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce is THE way to go.
Sams, Walmart, Costco. Good prices on the stuff.

To me, the best base is Kraft basic BBQ sauce. We start from there and add to it.

I just watched a BBQ show on tv the other night. They had Cattlemans sauce on there. They only used to sell to BBQ joints and not public. GFS has a Cattlemans Gold that is to die for. Have not found it anywhere in small bottles and only the gallon size at GFS. I did a catering job in Feb for 200 people and the Gold went over the best.

I've been trying to find the gold here also and no one carries it. I can barely find the smokehouse flavor.

Cattleman's is made by French's Foods (the mustard folks) at their plant in Springfield, MO. It won the American Royal. It is a really good sauce straight up and a great base for adding your own touches. You can buy it in bulk. I add it to things like smoked meatloaf.
I have nothing to do with KC Masterpiece. It hasn't even been to the American Royal. It is a sauce concocted "for the masses" and in NO WAY represents Kansas City barbeque or KC sauces. Though everyone thinks it is THE KC sauce.
Drop by KC and I will give you a tour of some KC joints that will change that perception real quick.

we have been buying it in the local grocery store since the early 80's. I am not sure when they started going public, been a while though. Only classic and smokey were available back then. I have seen the gold at Costco but never tried it.

I wish they still had the round glass jars, they were great for mopping

I have indeed tried Jeffs sauce. I like it but its not my favorite style. I like this style the best. Just my opinion. I wish someone had a recipe similar to Cattlemens Classic.

I found this: You would have to experiment with amounts though. Here is the site I found it at: http://www.recipelink.com/mf/14/22687

Here is a link that shows all the stores that carry Cattlemens sauce: http://www.cattlemensbbqsauce.com/Distributors.aspx

Looks like you can order online there as well but they are out of stock on several types.

post #18 of 32

Dude, you live 60 miles from Springfield where they make it ... make a trip this weekend!!!!! ((if you just HAVE to have your store bought!!!))

I gotta recommend Jeff's sauce. Never made sauce before, and now there isn't a store-bought bottle that can compare IMHO. Heck of a lot cheaper to make and ya get a lot more. You can alter the recipe of course to personal taste...
