Honey Badger BBQ Sauce

Habanero hot with a touch of honey, light up your grills kids!

Honey Habanero    HOT BBQ Sauce

Honey Habanero HOT BBQ Sauce

Heat Level Three

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.

(16oz) $5.99

At Honey Badger we use only real sugar. Corn belongs on your grill not in your sauce.

Honey Badger TRIPLE HOT BBQ Sauce

Honey Badger TRIPLE HOT BBQ Sauce

Heat Level Five

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.

(16oz) $15

Please be ready, this little beast is not messing around.

We know our BBQ sauce kicks ass, but don't take it from us.

See what others have to say about it.

All of the flavors, the honey, the sugar, the habanero pepper, etc. are present throughout and mix together in a truly delicious way. Not your typical sauce, very flavorful with a strong heat.

Scott Henderson, SauceAuthority.com, Regular Strength Review

This is what we have to say. Beware of the TRIPLE Cobra Strength BBQ Sauce. The description of their sauce says, "Triple Cobra Strength sauce redefines bringing the HEAT," and they were not lying.

Julie Thomson, Huffington Post, TRIPLE and Regular Strength Review

There is a certain fruitiness and tanginess that I love. It is really like no barbeque sauce that I have ever tasted. The flavors are beautifully balanced and you want to keep eating more.

Who Unleashed The Badgers?

The Story of 3 Friends With A Love of BBQ

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.

The Story of 3 Friends With A Love of BBQ

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.""

Sometimes we run across some pretty kick ass things...

and some not so kick ass things. Thought we’d share a few of them.
