As for the barbecue sauce, well ... here are a few samples, but again, if you have a family pride and joy recipe, use it!!

The Sauces

With any of the sauces, the key is to brush it on first one side then the other, alternatively. There's no such thing as too much from what I could glean.

Grandad's Barbecue Sauce
  • 2 cups butter (please use only butter)
  • 1/2 large bottle ketchup
  • 2 tbsp mustard
  • 1 tbsp Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 large bottle of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tsp chile powder (or less)
Melt the butter in a pan, and stir in the remaining ingredients. Keep in mind that this all a taste thing so feel free to vary the quantities of anything that you use. Simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Yields: 4 - 5 cups

Volunteer Fire Department Barbecue Sauce
In Texas, the VFD is considered the top of the line as far as BBQ goes.
  • 8 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 stick margarine or butter
  • 1/2 cup mustard
  • 1/2 cup soy
  • Juice of a lemon
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 6 drops Tabasco
  • salt and black pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Yields: about 2 quarts

Roxie's Barbecue Sauce
I developed this one myself a long time ago. It's a little different, but oh so good!!
  • 1 cup minced onion
  • 1 stick butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tbsp Chinese chili paste
  • 1 tbsp Sambal Oelek
  • 5 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • juice of two limes
  • 1 tbsp Tabasco sauce
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 cups dark beer (or use chicken stock)
In a heavy pot, sauté the onion in the butter until soft and almost golden. Add garlic and sauté a couple of minutes more. Add everything else and simmer on low for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring often. Baste your brisket or ribs often while cooking.
  • Yields: about 3 cups

I don't know about the rest of you but I suddenly have a craving for bar-be-cue. Gotta go get me some brisket started!!

Let me know how your own experiments worked out. And if you have a secret rub or sauce recipe you'd like to share, feel free. I'm always looking for something new!!
