Didn't know Head Country made a "hot" a must try for me. Thanks

I've been using big ricks sauce lately .
My sister signed me up for a sauce/rub of the month for christmas and this is what came last month. So far i've liked it the best, even ordered a bottle of the honey bbq and chipotle ketchup which were both good.

Now I am not in your kitchens, so I have no real idea why... is it more of a time constraint thing? Or is it that you have never taken the leap to experiment with making your own? I BBQ and Grill a lot, and financially it is much cheaper to make my own sauces and rubs, and quite frankly it is much easier to adjust flavors for differing uses.. ie honey base / molasses base / brown sugar / vinegar / pepper
the other advantage is of course making the sauce with the rub you are using, and enhancing the rubs flavor with the sauce instead of competing flavor profiles.

anyway, I was just wondering why the large amount of pre-made sauce use.

First of all, I have to point out that the title of this thread is, in fact, "Commercial BBQ Sauce." The OP was not asking for homemade sauce recipes. I have no doubt that 99% (or more) of the folks who posted their favorite commercial sauce here also make their own.

I can't speak for anyone else but myself here, but I *do* make a lot of sauces at home. I love to try different recipes. I started with some of the basic sauce/rub recipes in Steve Raichlen's books when I started grilling/smoking, moved on to his more specialized recipes, and now I will work from scratch or try things I find here on the forums or elsewhere if they sound interesting.

All of that said, I enjoy trying different commercial sauces as well. They can provide inspiration, or even just further inform me as to what others are doing, whether I like it or not.

I'm a professional jazz guitarist, playing with some of the top Milwaukee & Chicago musicians, and while I think I perform great music, I regularly listen to as much other good music (jazz, classical, R&B, world music, dance music, etc) as I can get my hands on, regardless of style! I also have an art studio where I paint abstracts with encaustic wax. My pieces have been shown in many galleries and museum shows. I love to go out and see other artists' works as often as possible.

To me cooking comes from the same creative place as music, visual art, homebrewing and many other things I enjoy doing. Why shouldn't I check out the sauces other people are making in an attempt to make the homemade ones even better?

edit: Sorry to hijack a bit, but I thought the point brought up by the poster was worth addressing within the context of this thread.
