So I got a burr up my ass to try something new! I thought it would be rad to try my hands at making some homemade bbq sauce. After looking into it and a bunch a different recipes, I found one I thought sounded good and based my creation from it. At the end, I had added and deleted some ingredients from the original recipe, to make it more of what I thought I'd want it to taste like.
My recipe in the end was this:
BIG P's EVENING GLARE BBQ SAUCE
3 c ketchup
1 c bottled french salad dressing
1/4 c Big P's Evening Glare IPA (any beer will work)
1/2 c Franks Hot sauce
1/2 c lemon juice
2 tbsp liq. smoke
2 tbsp garlic pwdr
2 tbsp pepper
2 tbsp chili pwdr
2 tbsp onion pwdr
2 x 1/2 c cider vinegar
1/2 c black coffee
1/2 c prepared yellow mustard
1/2 c molasses
2 tbsp cajun spice ( Zatarains preferred )
4 tbsp paprika
4 tbsp crushed dry chili
3 lg cloves garlic - minced
Combine the whole thing in a heavy pot
except for 1/2 c cider vinegar.
Reduce on low for 2hrs, stirring every 15 min.At the very end, add reserved 1/4 c cider vinegar.
