I can sadly take no credit for creating this truly genius BBQ sauce recipe. But it is just so great that I need to share it with everyone. The long and short of it is, I LOVE BBQ sauce and well all kinds of BBQ so when I cooked dinner for my Pop Up Supper Club for Jamie’s Food Foundation, the meatloaf had to be married with this BBQ sauce . So thanks BIG AL and I highly recommend to the world and beyond this sweet, spicy, tangy sauce.
BIG AL BBQ SAUCE
- 2 cups ketchup
- 2 cups passatta
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cups red wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup unsulfured molasses – TREACLE
- 4 teaspoons hickory-flavored liquid smoke
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon celery seed
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
In a large saucepan over medium heat, mix together the ketchup, tomato sauce, brown sugar, wine vinegar, molasses, liquid smoke and butter. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, paprika, celery seed, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper.
Reduce heat to low, and simmer for up to 20 minutes. For thicker sauce, simmer longer, and for thinner, less time is needed. Sauce can also be thinned using a bit of water if necessary. Brush sauce onto any kind of meat during the last 10 minutes of cooking.
YOU NEED THE LIQUID SMOKE TO MAKE IT TASTE JUST RIGHT … I USED THIS ONE ..
