This Sauce Is No Secret

SUE BEE® honey and other natural ingredients make our BBQ sauce a popular choice

Chicken, ribs, pizza, pulled pork, shrimp, salmon – what’s your favorite way to enjoy SUE BEE® Original Style Honey Barbecue Sauce? Don’t worry, you don’t have to choose just one. When it comes to grilling season, you’ll have plenty of time to try our popular blend on all your favorite dishes. 

And what’s in our special blend? You can probably guess one of the ingredients – it’s SUE BEE® honey, sourced from the beekeeper members of the Sioux Honey Association Co-op. In fact, 48% of our SUE BEE® Original Style Honey Barbecue Sauce is our honey. Then we add rich tomato and natural spices to complete a sweet and tangy blend. 

Whether you’re grilling, broiling or baking, this convenient sauce in a flip-top bottle is just a squeeze away and ready to add zest to any dish. Need ideas? How about our SUE BEE® Honey BBQ Chicken Wings? Or perhaps our SUE BEE® Honey BBQ Ribs? How about them, indeed!
