Wk 7 – BBQ Sauce

Most of our loved ones know that we have been on a family vacation in North Carolina, what they don’t know is that we have been buying BBQ sauce from all of our favorite places and plan to have a big ‘Taste-off’ later in the summer.  Inspired by all of these Mom and Pop locations, I too had to make my own BBQ sauce…which will be entered into the Taste-off competition.

Now, I can’t give you the exact recipe because then I would be giving away all of my secrets…but what I will give you is the base recipe that I used from the July/August 2010 issue of Food Network.

This recipe is from Pat and Gina Neely, hosts of the show Down Home with the Neely’s.

Barbecue Sauce

  • 2 cups of Ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp of onion powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 2 Tbl fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbl Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbl light corn syrup

Mix the ketchup, 1 cup water, both sugars, pepper, onion & mustard powders, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and sugar in a saucepan over high heat.  Bring to a boil stirring, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, at least 2 hours.  Let  cool, then reheat on the grill when ready to use.
