Backyard Chicken Barbecue with The OKB Sauce

Old Kentucky Barbecue sauce is the highlight of the grill.


Barbecue sauce comes in many great flavors, but if you want true southern style Kentucky BBQ sauce, The OKB Sauce is an excellent choice. OKB stands for Old Kentucky Barbeque and the original recipes dates back over one hundred years to a famous BBQ shack in Western Kentucky.

At first taste, Old Kentucky Barbeque sauce is mildly sweet and tangy. With much less sugar than typical BBQ sauces (only 2g), you’ll experience more than just sweetness. The fresh citrus comes from orange and lemon juices. After that, the old world spices kick in with black pepper, cinnamon, ginger and tamarind for a spicy warming sensation with a touch of sourness. It finishes with a balanced heat from chili powder and habanero mash.


OKB has zero fat, zero cholesterol, is vegan, gluten free, soy free, and contains no high fructose corn syrup which you'll find in typical sauces. Several BBQ sauces also use anchovies to achieve that savory element, but OKB is fish sauce free as well.


Because of the range of ingredients, OKB can be used on almost anything to elevate flavor. Perfect for grilling meats (see the backyard chicken BBQ in Austin, TX, below) and fish of all sorts, OKB also complements vegetables, salads, stir-fries (due to the ginger and tamarind), and even appetizers as a dipping sauce. It's great over pineapple slices and mixologists use it in Bloody Mary cocktails.
