2019 Sauces Of Honor Top 10 Winners

The National Barbecue News 2019 Sauces of Honor event had yet another record year with a total of 243 entries. 68 beef entries, 81 chicken entries and 94 pork entries made this the biggest Sauces of Honor event to date. The Sauces of Honor contest is the only barbecue sauce contest in the world that welcomes homemade sauces to compete with commercially produced sauces.

The contest is unique as the goal is simple; find the best sauce entered that accompanies beef, chicken or pork. Your National Barbecue News Magazine hosts this event every spring. In addition to the Sauces of Honor event, we also host the Rubs of Honor event as we search for the best barbecue rub for the same three proteins.

Listed below are the top 10 sauces for each of the three categories. Winners in each category will have their choice of a $750 advertising contract with the National Barbecue News Magazine or a $750 bottling contract with the Saucery from Ocean Springs, MS.

Thank you to all who entered our 2019 competition. We are already looking forward to hosting the 2020 event and hope to see your entries then.
