Each and every sauce by Hak’s is all natural, and for those who have allergy problems from onions and peppers. Immense passions and dedications work as the driving force behind every sauce produced at this company. 

What makes best Hak’s BBQ Sauce different from the others on the market? Obviously, it is the aroma and key ingredient-molasses.

Sharone Hakman who was always known as the guy, who made great sauces- is the founder of Hak’s. His secret recipe of sauce turned to be the most favorite one to both professional and backyard cooks. 


Over the years Hak’s has become a household name with 3 million in sales last year. The motto of the company is “Life is Short. Eat it up!” This explains Hakman’s passion for food.

History of Hak’s Sauces

Back in 2011, Sharone Hakman founded Hak’s BBQ. However, Sharone’s passion for food and grilling dates back even further. He was always considered a passionate cook.

Sharone Hakman always wanted to redefine BBQ sauces. In many interviews, he said: “each sauce is like a perfectly aged scotch…embodying a complexity of layers.”

Sharone’s life changed when he participated in the first season of Master Chef. He won the show with his secret weapon which also impressed the most difficult food critics and one of the top chefs in the world, the Gordon Ramsey himself.

3. Hak's Gourmet Chipotle Bourbon BBQ Sauce

This sauce was actually created during the days of Master Chef. Gordon Ramsay described it as “the best sauce he's ever had."

This high-end, and custom barbecue sauce, bring together seven smoked and roasted chilies with a bourbon bite. The company makes sure that the signature sauce contains fresh, high-quality ingredients.

The sauce is non-GMO, gluten and preservative free. Besides, serving the sauce with various food items, you can use it as a marinade. You can also use the sweet and smoky sauce as dipping sauce for chicken fingers or mozzarella sticks. 


This great sauce is consists of molasses, tomato paste, vinegar, apple cider water, tapioca starch, chipotle powder, ancho chili powder, onion powder, garlic, and salt. 

The list of ingredients also includes spices. Bourbon alcohol, caramel coloring, natural flavor, and smoke flavor. 

Various Dishes:

Most of the experienced pit-masters believe that molasses and pork are a great combination. Thus, these sauces are a good element for any recipe that has pork ribs. 

When I tried the chipotle bourbon for the first time with ribs, I was blown away with the results. Since then, it is my go-to sauce for any sort of grilling or smoking cook-out. 

The sauces go well with beef or chicken as well, depending on the recipe. Don’t forget it was barbecue sauce smothered steak which impressed 500 Marines at Camp Pendleton and secured Sharone’s place in the top position in the competition. 

Final Words:

Hak’s BBQ Sauce is another name of inspiration to learn how to turn passion into a profession. Started as a start-up, the company has become a national brand that offers barbecue sauces, marinate sauces, and salad dressings. According to a survey, Hak’s sauces are sold in over 12,000 retail stores around the US which also demonstrates its popularity. 

I have tried Hak’s collections of BBQ sauces, and I must say it was worth the price. I would highly recommend giving it a try-you are not going to regret your decision, rather order more of these sauces.
