Does anyone have a tried and true BBQ sauce Recipe? My Father in Law used to make BBQ sauce and sell it commercially. It is probably the best I ever tasted, but it has so many ingredients that it is not practical to make in small batches. It is a brown BBQ sauce, contains tomato puree, but does not taste tomatoey, nor sweet, nor too hot.
I already have come up with my own rib rubb (see recipe in cook book) which I consider to be among the very best, but I also want to formulate my own BBQ sauce. Most BBQ sauces have too much tomato and taste a lot like catsup, or are too hot, or too sweet. I have a couple recipes, including the one from FG that I am going to experiment with, but thought while I am at it I would ask if anyone already had one like I have described. I believe most really good BBQ sauces are "cooked", but am willing to try something else.
My first rubb recipe was horrible, but I finally worked it out, so I figure I can do the same with the BBQ sauce. My favorite commercial sauces are Selmon Brothers and Head Country. Good, but not perfect.
BTW, love the new downloadable cook book!
