The Salt Lick is no traditional Texas barbecue sauce (nor is it salty). It’s more like a salad dressing, in that it’s a thick vinaigrette—soybean oil, vinegar, sugar, prepared mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt and spices. It’s sweet and tangy and goes great on a salad. (You can see in the photo how the oil separates like in a vinaigrette—you need to shake it a bunch to integrate it back in). The Spicy version adds some habañero (but not too much). We generally don’t like products that are very sweet, but we are captivated by the layers of flavor in this family of sauces. Because they do have so much oil, we like them best for grilling products with the least amount of fat or no fat, like seafood and vegetables. And seriously, try them on the salad greens—a little goes a long way. These sauces taste so good, you’ll be pouring them on everything.
