BLOW YOUR MIND BIG AL’S BBQ SAUCE


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

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/big-als-kc-bar-b-q-sauce/

INGREDIENTS

  • 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

METHOD

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 ..

    Just tried this – my first time attempting homemade BBQ sauce, and it worked REALLY well!!

    Once you’ve got the base down it’s pretty easy to ‘pimp’ and tweak it to what you’re into. I was a little short in my larder, so I did a couple of things differently. I used a mix of white wine vinegar and balsamic instead of red wine vinegar, used extra cayenne to make up for the lack of chilli powder, soften and pureed onions and garlic to make up for the lack of onion powder and added ground coriander and ginger, bourbon, soy and a little ristretto, y’know, just ‘cos 🙂

    Oh, and I halved EVERYTHING – 2/3 of a Kilner jar is plenty for 2 people for a good, long while.

    Thanks for the tip, Lauren – It really IS easy and better than buying!!
