Chef Hymie Grande Sauce Unique

I got a bottle of sauce in the mail from Jaime Faitelson a.k.a. Chef Hymie Grande. It's not so much a traditional BBQ sauce meant for dipping, but it's a thinner basting sauce. I had the smoker fired up for some chicken and sausage, so I added a pork chop rubbed with salt, pepper, and Chef Hymie's Polapote BBQ Glaze.

After taking the finished chop off the smoker, I added another layer of glaze and dug in.

Th chop was perfectly cooked and still juicy. The sauce did not overpower the smokiness of the meat, but added it's own kick. For the "Medium" spiced sauce in Hymie's line, it sure packs a punch. One other great thing about Hymie's sauces is that they are all natural with no corn syrup or preservatives. While this sauce won't make me plaster everything I smoke with a glaze, I'll certainly consider it when grilling chops and chicken.

Each joint is judged on the essence of Texas 'cue...sliced brisket and pork ribs. Sausage is only considered if house made. Sauce is good, but good meat needs no adornment to satisfy. Each review can only be based on specific cuts of meat on that particular day. Finally, if the place fries up catfish or serves a caesar salad, then chances are they aren't paying enough attention to the pits, so we mostly steered clear.
