Summary

The Salt Lick Honey Pecan BBQ Sauce is a mustard and peach flavored sauce that pairs well with chicken and pork.  This is a thick sauce that is on the sweeter profile and is not spicy.

I can see why some people really get into this sauce but it’s just not a flavor profile that gets me excited.

Pros

Interesting Flavors

Peaches

Mustard

Cons

Blatantly Misnamed

The Salt Lick is one of the most famous barbecue restaurants in Texas so I was I was initially excited to find their sauces for sale in my local grocery store.

The first sauce I tried was the “Spicy Sauce” and it was awful.  Next I tried the Honey Pecan BBQ Sauce and, while this sauce is much better, I will not be buying another bottle.

How Does Salt Lick’s Spicy BBQ Sauce Taste?

I tried this sauce on some chicken and, once again, got ticked off at the stupid names that Salt Lick gives their sauces.

Yes, this sauce does contain both honey and pecans so they can technically call this a “Honey Pecan Sauce”.  The thing is, this is actually a “Mustard Peach Sauce”.

Seriously, look at the ingredient list above!  Honey is the 8th listed ingredient and comes after brown sugar (2nd ingredient) and molasses (7th ingredient).  Pecan is the 12th listed ingredients compared to mustard (3rd ingredient) and peaches (4th ingredient).

The sweet mustard and peach combination actually works quite well together and the sauce tastes pretty nice.  This is very much a sweet sauce but is not overly sweet and there are no bad after tastes like Kinder’s Zero Sugar Jalapeno sauce.

Although I think the sauce is okay I probably will not buy it again.  I like the use of peaches with barbecue but this sauce is pretty expensive and doesn’t really get me excited.

Many of the negative comments were about bottles arriving broken but there was one negative comment about the sauce itself which is given below.

  • I was very disappointed in this bbq sauce. It’s not very thick at all, kind of smells like ketchup and doesn’t have pecan flavoring at all.
