BBQ sauce

award-winning Homemade Flavor

Unparalleled versatility 

Each year cold Winter winds blow off of icy Lake Michigan, over snow-filled parks and into the frigid, desolate streets of the city. As the seasons turn, the scene quickly changes because in Chicago, Summertime and BBQ go hand-in-hand. Contests and festivals kick-off filling the parks and streets with plumes of white smoke and the sweet smell of grilled meats and sauce. Enthusiasts from all walks of life come together to put their homemade barbecue sauce recipes to the test. These are the streets where a local commodities trader, Bob Prosi (Pros), perfected his Sluggo's® BBQ Sauce. This is Chicago, where BBQ is more than just a meal; it's a celebration of diverse ethnic neighborhoods and cultures that brings people together. This is the place where Sluggo's® distanced itself from other sauces and emerged as the Windy City's finest BBQ Sauce.


Sluggo's® BBQ Sauce (formerly Big Boss BBQ Sauce) is an award-winning, time-tested recipe with a true homemade flavor. Made with a perfect blend of tomato, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar and secret spices, Sluggo's® BBQ Sauce has a versatile flavor making it ideal for grilling meat, seafood or poultry. Sluggo's® BBQ Sauce was an official BBQ sauce of The Taste Of Chicago and a top 10 finalist 5 straight years at The Royko Rib Fest (500 BBQ sauces entered). Sluggo's® BBQ Sauce was wagered by Chicago's Mayor Daley with the Mayor of Pittsburgh on the outcome of the Stanley Cup Championship in 1992.


Simply put, there is no better BBQ Sauce than Sluggo's®. Now you can BBQ like the Pros with Sluggo's®!
