In the spring of 2007, some friends and I went to the Sienna Plantation "Sip and Stroll." You pay a basic entrance to get in, then you can eat and drink to your heart's content. They had major wineries there, and major restaurants. One of the booths featured chicken covered in a unique barbeque sauce.
After my first taste, I was totally impressed. This barbeque sauce is a very light red, tending to yellowish orange. The color is surprisingly pleasant. But it is the taste we are looking for. And this sauce has an incredible taste. Or, rather, a combination of tastes.
It's called Didgy's Barbecue Sauce. The ingredient list includes white vinegar, onion powder, garlic powder, red peppers and lemon zest. The sugar content is a low two grams of sugars per one ounce serving. There is a definite sweetness, but, to me, it is lemon overtones that come shining through. And it is the lemon that makes this sauce so good.
There is a web site on the sauce. To take a look, click here. The story of the sauce says it was developed in the East Texas oil fields by "Granddad Didgy in the 30's. The "Mary" on the label is Scott Spencer's wife. Scott runs Houston Wine Merchant, located at 2646 South Shepherd, Houston, Texas, and this sauce cries out for a nice Chardonnay.
Let's face it, we all eat a lot of chicken, and the taste can get pretty boring. Chicken needs something to give it flavor. Didgy's comes through with flying colors. This sauce is available at better gournet shops around the Houston area. Give it a try. I'm sure you will like it.
