homemade bbq sauce vs. store bought

Most of you gurus probably make your own bbq sauce. Is there really enough of a difference in homemade sauce vs. store bought sauce to make your own? Or is making your own sauce just part of the bbqing experience that we all like?

I've never had homemade bbq sauce.

Thanks.

It all depends on what you like. I don't make my own. I normally tweak a store bought version or something I buy off the net.

I have purchased very expensive sauce because the label look really cool. To be honest I think I like Kraft original because it just taste good. I do not really care for overly sweet sauce but many people do. If I were going to make my own I think I would pour the cheap stuff in a bowl and mix in some of Larry's rub and tell everyone I invented it myself.

Like Larry said tweaking the store bought stuff works.
I know alot of guys that use Open Pit as a base for their homemade sauce's

I can make 7 gallons for what 2 gallons of storebought cost and it's better! If you need volume, it pays to make your own! Then, for personal use, I blend 1 part Texas Pepper Jelly Pineapple Habanero to one part sauce. Add a shot of GOOD tequila and ZOWIE!!!!!!

I very hardly ever use sauce on my meats. But when I do use sauce i make my own. I like my stuff alot better than that store bought stuff. It took me a few tries to get it down. I make it in large batches and just freeze it. I make it large batches because I hate making it. Too much to clean up. I like my sauce better becasue when you are eating it has a nice tangy flavor but when you are done you can fell the burn. I also found when makeing sauce it is better to let it sit for a few days.

I think it depends on what you're doing. I make myown sauce for pulled pork, but use storebought for ribs. Chicken, I use Rev marvins, sometimes kicked up with honey. I know in Texas, they like the heavier sauces...if you like the store bought, good. You might want to experiment with tweaking one of those...that's how I got started.
