bbq-saucesUnlike in Britain where barbecues conjure up images of burnt sausages and soggy salads, American style BBQ is all about the delicious, mouth-watering combination of smoke, meat and spice all cooked together ‘low and slow’. A technique that has been established in the American South since before the 19th Century, meat is cooked over an indirect heat for hours on end, allowing it to tenderise and the flavours become truly intoxicating. With BBQ recipes differing from state to state, everyone has their favourite recipe and with French’s bringing the best of three iconic BBQ regions to the table, Brits’ can start to find their own.

From Grillstock to Five Guys, fans of barbecue cuisine will be familiar with the growing number of American style restaurants popping up across Britain and the authentic taste and high quality ingredients in French’s® new range will help foodies recreate restaurant quality food for family and friends at home this summer.

Be confident in the knowledge that French’s ® new sauces are made with thick, rich tomato paste, and only the highest quality ingredients* for a taste like no other.


A rich, zesty, tomato based sauce with the ideal balance of caramelized sweetness and tang. It’s smooth but with just the right amount of spice. Perfect in burnt ends. Kansas City is one of America’s BBQ capitals where brisket is a favorite and burnt ends (edge pieces of brisket that absorb a lot of flavor from rub & smoke) are a local delicacy. This sauce is also fantastic in pulled pork.


This is our absolute favourite! A full-bodied blend of heat, tangy tomato, and touch of sweetness. It starts out sweet and smoky which is then followed by a delicious kick that will make your mouth water.

Re-invent chilli by adding this sauce for a smooth and smoky flavour. Or, top a hotdog with the sauce, pickle and ‘slaw to create a ‘Cowboy Dog’. In Louisiana meat is dry-rubbed with Cajun spices for a smooth, sweet and spicy flavor to produce mouth-watering pork or beef brisket.


Sweet and tangy BBQ finished with a touch of smoke.

Use to make a sweet, sticky sauce for ribs or top burgers for the taste of the USA. The region of Mississippi is known for producing authentically spiced BBQ foods like pork shoulder and whole hog that are slow–cooked for hours in a smoker or an open pit filled with hickory wood.
