Kickin' It with Kraft Thick'n Spicy BBQ Sauce - Nice Taste and Great Price

Pros:Solid brand name BBQ sauce. Good for large mixed groups. Nice price.

Cons:Not going gourmet or off the grid which I enjoy doing many days. No prob.

The Bottom Line: I write professionally on grilling barbecue, and I still keep Kraft on the shelf. Thick'n Spicy if a family top pick.


Kraft is a mainstream barbecue sauce, but it's a good one to keep on the shelf. I especially like the thick'n spicy Kraft barbecue sauce, because it is a little thicker and bolder than most of the line.

I write about grilling and barbecue online with my Barbecue Master blog and Yes You Can Grill web site, so I try out various barbecue sauces from around the country including brand new small batch sauces and some of the regional favorites and competition award winners.

Some people think I don't ever use grocery store barbecue sauces, but I do. I always know what kind of flavor I'll get, and the price is excellent on the big name brands. I can, for example, pick up Kraft on sale for under $1.00 per bottle on special.

I buy some of the Kraft barbecue line but not others. The smoke flavored ones, I pass on. They have a fake taste with trying to add smoke when it's not real smoke. But, many of the Kraft flavors are spot on with Thick-n Spicy being a favorite around the house.

I like this thicker version, because it stays on grilled foods better and does not water down as much in the crock pot. I most often use Kraft for crock pot chicken, so I can come home to a main dish ready and waiting. Plus, the house smells nice and homey when I crock pot a meal with Kraft barbecue sauce.

When Kraft says spicy, it's not over the top. It's still in the general family or visitors range even for those who don't do heat. Some of the small labels do pour on the heat for anything labeled spicy. While I adore hot foods, I know that I need to test drive a smaller brand name before springing a new barbecue sauce on some of my family and friends.

I can't even count the number of barbecue sauces I've tried. I write about many of them on my blog. I love to try out new flavors. And, I find some real keepers. My favorite list would draw from the artisan sauce list, but Kraft has a place in my cabinet. I stock up on sale and lean to ones like Thick'n Spicy. When in doubt with a new crowd over or when crock potting my foods, I like the assurance of a product that will work for everyone and one that is does not break my budget.

If you look in my cabinet now, you will find a number of barbecue sauces you've likely never seen and may never see. You will see, also, Kraft. I've used Kraft for years, and I can depend on a product that I can trust and that is general purpose and provide good results inside or outside.

As a grilling and barbecue writer, I do use more outside-the-box sauces, but I keep Kraft Thick'n Spicy on hand for those days when I don't want to think too much. I know the results will be solid. Not gourmet. But very good. And very reasonbly priced especially when I buy on sale.
