Barbecue Tasting Videos
In these videos, we tasted select barbecue sauces we carry here at the Heart of Iowa and commented on what we liked about each one! We then tasted barbecue sauces from some of the surrounding fast-food chains. We then compared the fast-food chains’ sauces to the ones we carry. For example, if you like Popeye’s BBQ sauce, you should use Big Daddy’s Sweet & Hot sauce for a similar experience and support local business! Some of our vendors’ sauces didn’t have a match which just shows how unique and original their flavors are!
