Best locally available bbq sauce (SEA)?

I'm wondering if anyone has found any particularly good ones at farmer's markets, local stores, or bbq places that might sell it by the bottle? Or actually if people just wanted to list their favorites that they can buy in the city, regardless of where they are made, that would be great, too.

    We like Jones' BBQ sauce, which you can get at Jones' restaurant as well as at Bob's butcher shop in Columbia City. The latter sells good meats too, including excellent pork ribs. The son who runs it now says that they've been buying meet from the same somewhat local rancher for decades....

      For a large selection of bottled BBQ sauces (and other hot sauces) check out DD Meats in Mountlake Terrace.

        I am a really big fan of the Tom Douglas Ancho and Molasses BBQ sauce, which can be found in most grocery stores.

          The Cocoa Nib BBQ Sauce is good too.

            I need to try that, but I always wind up grabbing the other...

              =) Go to Theo Chocolate to buy some chocolate and get the BBQ sauce there, so you won't be tempted by other sauces ;-)

            I thought the Tom Douglas sauce was way too sweet. His spice rubs are too sugary, too, they made everything burn when we tried them. My current favorite is the Skagit River Brewery's peach-jalapeno BBQ sauce, sometimes we ask for a take-out tub of it to use at home. Great stuff.

            I like "Uncle Todd's" which I have found at Central Market in Shoreline and the Ballinger Thriftway. It's not too sweet and comes in regular and spicy versions.

                They provide the cocoa nibs for Tom Douglas' Cocoa Nib BBQ Sauce.
