Wank's Off Da Hook BBQ Sauce is Off Da Hook

At the Art & Soul Fest in Oakland today, there was a new section devoted to locally grown and produced foods. Among the vendors was Wank's Off Da Hook BBQ Sauce. Wow, that's good stuff -- not too sweet and not too sour, with just the right amount of heat, and a bargain at $3 a bottle. Just finished having the sloppy joe's I made with it tonight. Glad to know there are a few places in the area where I can pick up some more.

Also at the Festival were Serendipity Chocolates -- I liked their "intensity" truffle, Numi Teas, Your Black Muslim Bakery, and three wineries including Enat Winery that makes Tej, an Ethiopian Honey Wine, which we bought a bottle of as well.

  1. Thank you for the tip--I grill w/o any provision for making sauce, which I usually consider a supplement rather than a necessity, but always like to try different versions. Would you be so kind as to provide the first 4-5 ingredients listed on Wank's label? 'T'would tell me a bit about the flavor profile, like degree of tomato-ness,vinegar acidity, nature of sweet (like fructose-corn syrup vs. molasses vs. honey). again, thanks

    1. Here's the main ingredient list from the hot and spicy version which has some heat but isn't overwhelming.

      tomato sauce, natural brown sugar, molasses, vinegar, honey, garlic salt
