Which Are the Best Meats to Combine With Hot Sauce

Posted on May 26th, 2023.

Here at Foxx Sauce Co, nestled in the heart of Manchester, Connecticut, I've poured my love for BBQ into creating an enticing medley of gourmet BBQ and hot sauces. Each product in my lineup, from the all-purpose seasoning & rub to the wicked peach, moheato, Foxx's Fredhot, Love & Fire, Voodoo BBQ, Smoked BBQ, Hot BBQ, and the delectable "Love in Your Mouth" sauce, is an embodiment of my passion. In this blog post, let's explore the best meats to combine with hot sauce and how to make your BBQ experience truly unforgettable.

Hot sauce and BBQ share a deep-rooted bond that's been cultivated over generations. This perfect blend of spice and smokiness is a match made in culinary heaven, but knowing which meats best harmonize with hot sauce can elevate your BBQ to gourmet heights.

First on the list is the good old chicken. Chicken, due to its mild and versatile flavor, serves as the perfect canvas for hot sauce. My personal favorite to pair with chicken is the Foxx's Fredhot sauce. It packs just the right amount of heat to make the chicken sing, but also offers a subtle tanginess that balances the spiciness perfectly. Whether you're grilling wings or smoking a whole chicken, Foxx's Fredhot is bound to make your poultry pop.

Next up, pork. Pork has a slightly sweet, rich flavor that pairs exceptionally well with hot sauces. Particularly, the combination of pork ribs or pulled pork with my Voodoo BBQ sauce is one that is hard to beat. The smoky undertones of the sauce match the rich fattiness of the pork, while the spicy kick cuts through and brings a fantastic balance to the dish. It's a harmonious meeting of flavors that results in a BBQ experience like no other.

When it comes to beef, especially brisket and steaks, the combination possibilities are endless. Beef's robust flavor profile holds its own against the most potent hot sauces. For a touch of smoky heat, the Smoked BBQ sauce is an excellent choice. If you're looking for a balance of sweetness and spice, the Wicked Peach sauce works wonders. The hint of fruitiness from the peach provides a delightful contrast to the rich, savory flavor of beef.

Seafood is another fantastic partner for hot sauces. Whether it's shrimp, fish, or even grilled oysters, the sweet and spicy Love & Fire sauce has a way of enhancing seafood's natural flavors while introducing an exciting element of heat. The zesty citrus notes in the sauce add a fresh, vibrant touch to seafood, making it an instant crowd-pleaser.

And of course, the BBQ experience wouldn't be complete without the ultimate sidekick - the all-purpose seasoning & rub. This rub is my secret weapon to infusing any meat with an added layer of flavor. It's a blend of spices that perfectly complements my hot sauces, intensifying the meat's natural taste and adding a mouthwatering crust.

BBQ is not just about the meat or the heat. It's about creating an experience, a fusion of flavors that sparks joy with every bite. As the sole artisan behind Foxx Sauce Co, my goal is to craft sauces and rubs that help you create these unforgettable BBQ moments. Each sauce is a labor of love, designed to pair with different types of meats to bring out their best flavors.

At Foxx Sauce Co, my passion for BBQ is distilled into every bottle of sauce and every pinch of rub. My hope is that these products not only help you explore the delightful world of BBQ but also inspire you to create your own unique combinations. Who knows, you might find a new favorite pairing that's not on this list!

Now, let's venture beyond traditional meats and consider how hot sauce can transform vegetarian and vegan dishes. While it's true that BBQ is often associated with meat, there's no rule that says vegetables and plant-based proteins can't join the party. The neutral profile of tofu, for instance, can be beautifully enhanced by the "Love in Your Mouth" sauce. It lends a kick of spice and tang to the tofu, making it a delicious plant-based BBQ option.

Grilled vegetables, too, are a great candidate for hot sauce. Imagine grilling sweet bell peppers, zucchini, or eggplant, then finishing them off with a brush of Moheato sauce. The minty freshness of the sauce juxtaposed with the heat creates a surprisingly delectable pairing.

What about burgers? Both traditional meat burgers and their vegetarian counterparts can be taken to new heights with a splash of Hot BBQ sauce. A burger slathered with this fiery sauce isn't just a meal; it's a flavor journey. Each bite offers a burst of heat, a touch of smokiness, and a depth of flavor that's truly satisfying.

And let's not forget about sausages. Whether they're made of pork, beef, chicken, or plant-based ingredients, sausages drenched in Voodoo BBQ sauce are a dream come true for hot sauce lovers. The rich, spicy sauce complements the natural juiciness of the sausages, creating a BBQ masterpiece.

To conclude, choosing the best meats or proteins to combine with hot sauce depends largely on personal preference. What's important is finding a balance of flavors that tickles your taste buds. Whether it's the fiery Foxx's Fredhot on a succulent chicken wing, the smoky Voodoo BBQ sauce on a juicy sausage, or the tangy "Love in Your Mouth" sauce on a piece of tofu, every pairing brings a unique experience.

At Foxx Sauce Co, my mission is to bring you a variety of sauces that offer a universe of flavors to explore. I invite you to try these pairings, experiment with your own, and most importantly, enjoy the journey of discovery.
