The ultimate mix of Heat and Sweet, combining real HONEY with plenty of HABANERO chili peppers, to produce a tangy concoction ready for your BBQ ribs, chicken, burgers, and even king cobra!
First the unique blend of spices and natural honey envelop your taste buds, not too sweet and sickly like most sauces, but enough to balance what is coming: the slow build of habanero heat!
The uninitiated will raise their brows and exclaim “wow that’s hot, but I like it”, while the pepper connoisseur will nod and state “now that’s what I want BBQ sauce to taste like”.
It really is hot sauce meets BBQ Sauce.

At Honey Badger we use only real sugar. Corn belongs on your grill not in your sauce.
Some like it hot, and some like it HOT.
Our Triple Strength sauce redefines bringing the HEAT. So powerful that we’re only permitted to make a limited edition run of 500 per year of the stuff.
Rumor has it that Triple strength might even be too strong for the real Honey Badger, we don’t know yet, but with your help maybe we can find out. It still has the great honey flavor, but when the Habanero comes through you better be ready!
Each limited edition TRIPLE Strength bottle is branded with an embossed metal badge with its own uniquly etched ID number. If you feel tough enough, grab one before they go, when they are gone, they are gone! But be warned, this stuff is hot hot hot.

Please be ready, this little beast is not messing around.
Initially you can taste all the honey goodness, then the TRIPLE Cobra grabs your head and doesn’t let go for a little while.Scott Henderson, SauceAuthority.com, TRIPLE Strength Review
I have been on a wings kick lately..... I decided to toss the wings in the sauce after cooking the sauce on the wings. This technique gave the most punch to the flavor, allowing both the honey sweetness and the tang to shine.Big Wayne, Big Wayners BBQ Blog, Regular Strength Review
There’s a good balance between the sweetness and the heat, and it’s tangy without overpowering the meat. It’s not syrupy, like honey-based BBQ sauces can be. The habanero makes it pretty hot, but not make-my-mascara-smear hot.Summer Sewell, The Bold Italic, Regular Strength Review
Your Hot BBQ Sauce is awesome guys! Everything that I have added it to becomes ridiculously better (except for beer). Thanks for creating it!!
I love the way that the flavor changes when grilled. I liked adding a little extra after the grill, and my husband liked it spicy and applied before grilling.
Just grilled up two brats and two burgers with the sauce! LOVE IT! You guys rock!
Dang if it isn't good on everything. Four stages of flavor sweet-savor-heat-repeat!
I love this BBQ sauce. I gave a bottle to a Pit Master friend of mine who was in the NYC BBQ Championship in April. He and his crew loved it.

Honey Badger Sauce Co. was founded by 3 friends with a burning passion for spice and good BBQ. Based in California, we enjoyed turning up the heat on our BBQ dishes but found most “spicy” BBQ sauces either sickly sweet or overly smoky. So, armed with a kitchen and a desire to create something different, we set out to perfect a sauce that is habanero hot but not overly sweet; a sauce that allows complex honey and smoke flavors to come through, but not dominate.Read Full Story
Honey Badger Sauce Co. was founded by 3 friends with a burning passion for spice and good BBQ. Based in California, we enjoyed turning up the heat on our BBQ dishes but found most “spicy” BBQ sauces either sickly sweet or overly smoky. So, armed with a kitchen and a desire to create something different, we set out to perfect a sauce that is habanero hot but not overly sweet; a sauce that allows complex honey and smoke flavors to come through, but not dominate.
But how did we get here? Well with a ton of help! Over 1,400 awesome people, now known as the Honey Badger Heroes, pledged over $49,000 on Kickstarter to help us put the fearsome badger bottle design and our home made sauce recipe into full scale production. We started shipping in May 2013, bringing BBQ Carnage to all corners of the globe. We've shipped as far as Austrailia, Holland, Gemany, UK, France, South Africa all over the US. We're stoked with how well it's been received and are proud that all our sauces use only natural ingredients and that we've managed to keep production entirely in the USA.
Since we're better at grilling than writting, we'd thought we'd let Tilde Herrera's write up for the Mercury News tell the full story: "Paul Lees and Chris Glaister didn't eat much barbecue growing up in rainy England. "If you have a barbecue in England," Lees says, "it means some poor chef is getting very wet." But that all changed when the duo ended up in California and met Leigh Zalusky, 29, whose family owns a house on Clear Lake. The friends spent the summer of 2011 on that lakeside deck, experimenting with a smoker and creating their own barbecue sauce, after becoming disenchanted with what they found on store shelves.
Now the trio -- a product designer and two wind turbine engineers -- have become barbecue sauce entrepreneurs, raising nearly $50,000 through Kickstarter to produce a sweet-and-spicy blend they've dubbed Cobra Strength Honey Badger BBQ Sauce.
They blasted through more than a dozen iterations before settling on the final recipe, a blend of honey, habaneros, vinegar and tomato -- perfect for slathering on anything from the grill or smoker, be it wild boar or burgers. They also use the sauce in spicy little meatballs called Badger Balls. And just about everything else. Honey badger, as the viral video tells us, don't care.
"I eat it on anything," says Lees, 33. "I make a fried egg sandwich, and it gets Honey Badger BBQ Sauce."
After the sauce was a hit with friends, the young men ran with the idea, conceiving a bottle shaped like the aggressive little honey badger popularized in a YouTube video. When the joking turned serious, they used Kickstarter to raise funds.
"It was driven by the idea of having this great sauce that really kicks your ass," says Glaister, 34. "What more could it deserve than a honey badger-shaped bottle?"
They spent months designing a honey badger bottle compatible with a manufacturing line. They perfected the production-scale recipe, phasing out high fructose corn syrup and sodium benzoate."
"The next step is getting the sauce onto local store shelves. For now, you can buy the sauce directly from their website, www.honeybadgersauce.com, for $6.99, along with a limited-run, face-melting and wallet-draining Triple Cobra Strength Sauce, which costs $60. They're planning a slightly less spicy Double Cobra Strength version, along with a hot sauce down the road.
In the meantime, keep an eye out for these guys, who pop up for impromptu barbecues at public parks and outdoor events, such as San Francisco's recent Bring Your Own Big Wheel
"That's the kind of thing we're trying to put out there: Go out and have a great time," Lees says. "That's what a honey badger does.""
