The Best Barbecue Sauce: Our Taste Test Results

11/02/2011 09:48am ET | Updated August 31, 2012

Americans love their barbecue, and so do we! Any good barbecue starts with a sauce, and most backyard grill masters use store-bought because it's quick and easy. But with all the countless barbecue sauces available in the market, it can be intimidating to find the best one.

We decided to put as many bottled sauces as we could find to a blind taste test -- 26 different kinds, 24 different brands. We tested popular All-American brands as well as regional barbecue sauces from the South. The winning sauce surprised us.

Check out the results below. How did your favorite fare? Let us know in the comments section below.

As always, this taste test is in no way sponsored or influenced by any of the brands included.
