A while back I reviewed my first white sauce, Firebud’s Salvation Sauce and i was delighted to have found an amazing new style of sauce that goes well on chicken.

The folks at Firebud Brands were kind enough to send me their Body Buzz Rub and Slap Sauce to try as well.

Editors Note: We at Grilling With Rich never except payment for our reviews. I would like to thank the kind folks at Firebud Brands for providing us with a sample. You can read our full Product Review Guidelines, here.

Body-Buzz-Rub-ProfessionalFirebud Brands Slap SauceThe Body Buzz Rub is 100% all natural, gluten free, high fructose corn syrup free (would hope a rub would have no syrup) and preservative free. It is intended for use on pork, chicken, seafood, vegetables and more. I personally used it on some chicken. Simply rubbed the chicken on both sides and grilled it. What i liked about this rub is its high level of brown sugar made the rub caramelize as I grilled creating a great flavor with a nice bit of spice and heat behind it. I think it has become my new favorite rub for use on chicken for sure.

The Slap Sauce is a Carolina Mustard BBQ sauce, one I don’t have much experience with. It too is 100% all natural, gluten free, high fructose corn syrup free, and preservative free. It has won the 2014 NBBQA Award of excellence as well. Personally, I don’t have much experience with mustard based sauce and found this to be quite nice. The spice of the mustard is a great combination with chicken or pork, although be careful not to use to much or it will easily overpower the meat (I made that mistake my first time using it).

With the high quality of products its no wonder I’ve become a fan of Firebud Brands sauces and rubs. I am intrigued to see what they come up with next and can’t wait to taste it and use it for one of my next cooks.
