Hak’s BBQ Sauce Collection
Sharone has always been the guy behind the grill. And now, he’s the man behind the sauce! He wanted to redefine BBQ, and elevate it with real body and developed flavor. Each ingredient has its own characteristic and role in the full experience. Like a perfectly aged scotch, it embodies a complexity of layers. Sweet and tangy flavors hit full blast. The robust taste and texture of caramelized onion and garlic surface, punctuated by a deep smack of bourbon. Smoked and roasted chilies release heat that comforts the palate. This sauce was Sharone’s secret weapon on MasterChef. Feeding his BBQ sauce-smothered steak to 500 Marines at Camp Pendleton, then satisfying America’s road warriors with gourmet BBQ burgers during a truck stop challenge. When TV’s toughest food critics and chefs were blown away by this sauce, Sharone knew it was time to share.
Like a perfectly aged scotch, Chipotle Bourbon embodies a complexity of layers. Sweet and tangy flavors hit full blast. The robust taste and texture of caramelized onion and garlic surface, punctuated by a deep smack of bourbon. Smoked and roasted chilies release heat that comforts the palate.
