When it comes to BBQ, there is no shortage of delicious sauces, rubs or glazes. With so many great options out there, choosing the right stuff for your summer (or winter) BBQ can be downright dizzying. We decided to help you make decisions this summer by sharing a few of our local favorites.

Why we love it: Sweet-spicy with the robust backbone of coffee. Makes weekday dinners feel like a trip to Mexico. Just add margaritas. glteaandspice.com

Why we love it: Chipotle-nipped, molasses-and-maple rich but not a wee bit sweet.
