Sweet with a bit of Heat
« on: March 17, 2015, 04:25:57 PM »
I have been perfecting this BBQ sauce for years and three years ago said this is it. I know it has lots of ingredients, but the end game is worth it.

Greg's BBQ Sauce

Ingredients
   2 cups Ketchup
   1 t Garlic Powder
   1 t Onion Powder
    cup Brown Sugar
   1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar 
   1 cup Apple Juice
   2 T Yellow Mustard
    t Cayenne Pepper
   2 T Lemon Juice
   2 T Tamarind Date Sweet & Sour Sauce  (Find Indian Grocery Store)
    cup bourbon whiskey
   1 T liquid smoke
     t black pepper
    t sea salt
   6 oz Cento tomato paste

Directions
Mix all ingredients together and bring to a boil, then simmer in a saucepan for 30 minutes. Allow to cool and then store in refrigerator. Flavor will improve overnight. This will keep for a month or two in the refrigerator.

That looks awesome. I definitely am going to try that!

Paidin,

This is really good sauce, I have been working on this recipe for years and finally, I don't think I can make it better.

Let me know what you think!

We almost had a BBQ emergency today, open the refrigerator and no sauce.

Since we are having pulled pork, I had to make a new batch of sauce, here are some photos!

Lot of good ingredients Greg. I still haven't tried it yet, but I will. I had to laugh at the pic of all the stuff. Guess we all look like that when we do our thing.

You rights tons of ingredients, but worth trouble!

Let me know what you think and if you make any adjustments that improve the sauce.

Hey Bill,

I have added celery seed to my tuna salad, but never my BBQ sauce :)

I have some sauce in the refrigerator and could give it a try. How do you think it will affect the recipe?

Hey Greg,
     Being from K.C. here most of the BBQ sauces all have celery seed in them.
If you have a 8 oz bottle in the fridge. Add maybe a teaspoon to start with and you will be amazed at the flavor it will add to the sauce. Also will bring out the meat flavor. Let me know what you think...

Hey Bill,

I tried them in some cold sauce and didn't notice much difference. I need to get ready for a trip, but I will try cooking some in my sauce and see if I like the outcome.

Thanks Greg

That will bring out the flavor if you add to your sauce when cooking it. Also might have to add more to get a subtle hint of flavor. Seems like in the sauce my Mom made would use 3 t. in 24 oz of liquid.

Are you using whole seeds or powdered, I have the whole seeds.

Yes, Greg whole seeds. Did not know they had powder celery seed. Wow I also use the celery seed in cole slaw. Am not a big tuna salad person, too much as a kid. Being Catholic and the fish thing on Fridays was a drag. I do not do that anymore. The fish on Fridays as use the CLL as an excuse. lol
