Saus.Guru’s Champions’ Choice is a sauce created with flavor elements that are fundamental in “American Style BBQ”: tomato, mustard, smokiness, honey, and the fruity sweetness of roasted pineapple. After combining all the ingredients in the right proportion, the sauce is cooked to create a versatile BBQ sauce that can be used by both novice and seasoned pitmasters. It can be used in low and slow BBQ as a marinade, mop, or glaze, or drizzled over your favorite dishes or snacks before serving.

Champions’ Choice works exceptionally well when paired with Saus.Guru’s Mother of All Rubs, creating the ultimate combination for low and slow BBQ preparations. The duo is extremely delicious when combined with spareribs.

This sauce is also an excellent marinade for sous-vide preparations. The active enzymes from the pineapple break down tough meat fibers, making the meat tender more quickly. Use this sauce as a glaze at the end of your low-temperature cooking or add it as a gravy to pulled pork or pulled chicken. Diluted, the sauce can also be used as an injection liquid to add flavor from the inside.

The Pitmaster Collection – The ultimate Rub & Sauce combination
The Story

Pit-mas-ter [‘pĭt-mæ-ster]. Noun (plural pitmasters)
Someone who operates a barbecue pit. Sometimes an expression of respect for someone skilled in barbecuing.

This collection has been developed in collaboration with pitmasters, especially for pitmasters and serious BBQ enthusiasts with above-average interest in flavors and BBQ preparation.
To the best of our knowledge, the Pitmaster Collection is the first competition level series of flavor enhancers in which Dry Rubs and BBQ Sauces are developed and taste-matched together, much like wine and food pairing in fine dining restaurants.
With Saus.Guru’s Pitmaster Collection, you have a unique series of products in your hands.

The sauces in the Pitmaster Collection are based on the competition sauces typically used in American Style BBQ championships, but with a twist.
The chefs at Saus.Guru have tailored the flavors of this collection to the European, more refined palate.
The sauces in the Pitmaster Collection are not as overwhelmingly sour as many of the other sauces in this segment.
They are also not extremely sweet.

All of this is done to bring more balance to the perception of their overall flavor and to allow all the flavor characters in the sauce to be experienced fully.
Moreover, they are slightly thicker than what is commonly found on the market.
This is very useful for the end user when glazing, coating, and candy-ing products during Low & Slow Cooking.

The Pitmaster Collection Dry Rub Series is composed of the best ingredients.
Top-quality spices are processed with extreme precision to achieve the proper size (schnitt) for optimal particle distribution and the perfect ‘bark.’
These rubs also have better salt balance to avoid overpowering the flavors of the herbs and spices.

Serving suggestions

Champions’ Choice is ideal for a wide range of roasted vegetables such as pumpkins, sweet potatoes, zucchini, eggplant, celeriac, peppers, and onions. To use the Pitmaster Collection, the sauces and rubs are designed to be used as a 2-unit. The sauce is used first as a marinade and as a sticky base for the Dry Rub. Add the rub to this base and start your preparation. As you cook, keep the rub moistened with the sauce, adding a new layer of sauce each time by pouring or using a brush. Just before serving, apply the final layer for a beautiful glossy finish.

Instructions for use
