Giada De Laurentiis is a fan of Stubb's, a classic Texas-style barbecue sauce developed by one of the most famous pitmasters of all time: C.B. Stubblefield. De Laurentiis says the sauce's flavor is the "perfect balance of sweet and tangy with just a touch of warmth so everyone in the family can enjoy it."

"For quick grilling at home, my go-to sauce is Sweet Baby Ray's Original recipe," said chef Lawrence Page of WE tv's "Hustle & Soul" and owner of The Pink Tea Cup in Brooklyn, New York. "I like the fact that the sauce is sweet, hence the name, and doesn't have a heavy ketchup-like taste. For every cup of Sweet Baby Ray's, I add two pinches of cayenne pepper, 1/4 cup Kentucky bourbon, 1 teaspoon ground white pepper and 1 teaspoon of dark Vermont maple syrup. The maple syrup really adds a nice sweet and smoky flavor to ribs when grilling!"

12 chefs reveal their favorite hot sauce . Break out of your hot sauce routine by trying one of these chef -approved hot sauces , available at a grocery store near you (or better yet, online).

INSIDER asked 11 popular celebrity chefs to reveal their best grilling secrets. Luckily, your favorite celebrity chefs are coming to the rescue with tips that will kick your BBQ up a notch.

But, she does have a secret barbecue ingredient: "One thing I will suggest for kicking up any BBQ sauce is liquid smoke," she says.

"Especially for things that you don't grill for an extended period of time, like fish or veggies, but still want to impart outdoorsy flavor. I've used it since I was in an apartment with a no-grill policy. I used it in marinades and sauces to give that realistic charcoal grill kick. Back then there were just a few flavors like hickory or mesquite, but now there are great flavors like pecan, apple and maple wood. I find Wright's and Colgin brands to be the most pungent and creative with flavors. The key is to not use too much, just a teaspoon or so is good enough for two cups of sauce or adding to marinade/brine for a whole chicken."

"I am a big fan of the spicy sauce from Mean Pig in Cabot, Arkansas," said Adam Richman, TV personality and author of "Straight Up Tasty." "With the Mean Pig BBQ sauce, I love that there is heat, but not too much. I like that the flavor develops as you cook with it, and that it can be a base for other sauces by the small addition of things like roasted garlic, sautéed onions, red wine or even oyster sauce," he added.

"One of my secret weapons [for grilling] is Bulldog, a Japanese brand of tonkatsu sauce. Thinned out with a few tablespoons of vinegar, it's a superb marinade and I use it as a table sauce loosened with lemon juice all the time," said Zimmer. "The sweet and savory combination in Bulldog isn't a steak sauce or Worcestershire sauce, but it's vaguely reminiscent of both but jammier and fruitier. Glazed on ribs, it is phenomenal."
