Fire Up the Grill




Smoky and Spicy! In a blind taste test, our staff compared four N.H. barbecue sauces from around the state. Here’s what they thought.Beasley’s Barbecue SauceThis traditional barbecue sauce has a good balance between heat and a sweet smoky flavor. This is a great sauce if you’re feeding a crowd — great for those who want some spice, but not too hot for everyone else to enjoy.

And the Winner Is...Mizuna Market and CaféIt wasn’t easy to pick a winner, but when it came down to it the sauce from Mizuna Café came out on top. It has a little bit of everything — it’s sweet, smoky and packs a nice kick of spice. When heading outside for a backyard barbecue, we recommend you stop in at Mizuna for your sauce supplies.
