Waitrose Hot and Spicy Piri Piri Sauce £1.59 for 200ml In this sauce-cum-marinade superbly ripe red pepper holds its own against Scotch bonnet chilli. Parsley and lemon provide pep.
Daylesford Organic £3.99 for 250ml, from Ocado
A thick blend of tomatoes, onions and apples, laced with honey. Its bright floral notes and rich sweetness would be a treat with sausages.
Tesco Finest Sticky BBQ Marinade £1.79 for 270ml
Combining chargrilled chillies and smoked paprika with the sour tang of Worcester sauce and a hint of maple syrup, this is at once sharp, smoky and sweet.
Asda Louisiana Creole Last Minute Marinade £1 for 280g
An earthy smokiness runs through this pork-friendly sauce (use it on ribs or with sausages). Cayenne pepper adds a little heat.
Levi Roots Reggae Reggae Sauce Jerk/BBQ £1.69 for 310g, widely available
This is a tongue-scorcher. Scotch bonnet chillis blaze through the puréed tomato, but we can still discern garlic and herbs.
And the winner is….
Mr. Levi Roots, Reggae Reggae Sauce.
