Favorite BBQ Sauce Recipe

Post by sausagemaneric » Sun May 19, 2013 02:32

So Who has a favorite BBQ sauce recipe? My staple recipe is the Southern Style BBQ sauce from Jeff Smith's Frugal Gourmet Cook Book. I read of and made one with a Coke and Tomato base. It was good but I'm always looking for new recipes. I am kind of partial to the southern types with piles of mustard and vinegar.

Thanks,

Hey, hey, sausageman...
Click on this link: http://wedlinydomowe.pl/en/viewtopic.php?t=5146 then look down the page to find, "non-sausage" recipes. Look under "sauces" and you'll find twenty of them. This is the MRI... the member's recipe index.

Best Wishes,

The only homemade sauce that I really like is a mustard based sauce for pulled pork.

Roxy's S.C. Mustard Sauce

1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup Yellow mustard
1/4 cup onion finely minced
2 cloves garlic pureed
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Combine ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

For a smoother sauce, blend on high for a few minutes.

I have one that was left to me in someone's Will. Some people take their sauces pretty serious. This one is seriously good though and out of respect I have to do the same so be sure to be nice to me and I might leave it to you. :lol:

The mustard sauce posted is very good. I like the mustard type sauces more for chicken than for pork.

A while back I boiled a gallon of cider down to 10 ounces and it is thick like molasses, slightly sweet and slightly sour. I ground a half cup of mustard seed and mixed them into a half cup of this and thinned it with cider vinegar. It is good like this but still needs some work. The cider molasses is a good taste in it.

To the honourable Mr BUTTERBEAN,
PLEASE help an old geezer out and email me this great recipe you mention.
I am just in the process of collecting BBQ sauces, it has never been high on my wanted list.
Since retirement this has changed a lot, now I want to know everything!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry Crusty, I have to go by the conditions of the Will. I had tried for years to talk the guy out of the recipe but to no avail. He would always just bring me some. He loathed his daughter and her husband so before he died he asked if I would be the executor of his grandchildren's trust and the recipe was left to me as a thank you but with conditions.

There are a lot of great sauces out there but what sets this one apart is its appeal to everyone's tastes whether you are a fan of mustard, tomato, vinegar or white sauces. On top of that it is shelf stable for months. I've never had a sauce so good on anything and have such an appeal to anyone's pallette.

Some sauces are very complicated and some are too complicated. Here is a sauce that is good on its own or can be used as a base to make a more personal sauce. I think if you will try this you won't be disappointed.

1c. Ketchup (anything but Hunts)
3/4c. brown sugar
1/4c. finely minced onion
1/2t. Liquid smoke
1/4t. garlic powder

Saute the onion in a pot with some butter till it sweats good and becomes translucent then just add everything else to the pot and simmer a while. Typically I will add black pepper and other things to this depending on the mood. This is very good for pork.

Thanks,
same as chinese style steamed fish, the microwave part is the steaming, just use choke vegetables.

I prefer oven/foil method and lately I've been using ti leaf, makes for easy transfer from foil to ziploc. use search feature, search chinese style. Flash fry with peanut oil after. Everybody get different "chinese style".

Thanks Butterbean for the starter recipe. I can understand why you can't divulge the sauce recipe handed to you with conditions by your friend.
Best Regards,
Jan.

Back in my Colorado days, I had Japanese-American friend who used a 50-50 mixture of soy sauce and bourbon. Every 30 minutes, he would baste his brisket with maybe a quarter of it, then make up the level loss with bourbon, then we would taste. After about five hours of this...

Well, I don't remember how the brisket came out, but by then, we really didn't care.
