Sweet Sauce?

I am just curious to see how many people like a sweet sauce and possibly share some recipies. I make my own sauce and I prefer it sweet. I use the smoking process to moderate the sweetness and vise versa.

I never cook with a sauce if anything I add it at the end when I pull whatever off the smoker. This allows you to add more smoke and allow the meat to get darker. The added bitterness of a heavy dark smoke combined with a sweet sauce, that is allowed to soak in to the exterior layer over a couple of hours and a couple of layers, has really impressed me. It is almost like a glaze, but because it was added after the cooking was finished and the piece was cooling down, it slowly absorbs the flavors cutting the bitterness of a dark black smoke yet not making it sauce heavy or overly sweet.

I have my own cooking style and my ingrediants are usually things you may not expect. I make my own sauce, and that varries from cut to cut, cook to cook. I hope to be posting recipits soon. But as I develop them I'll keep the best to myself... ;)

I love all sauces, but I do adore a hint of sweetness to it!

And, I'm seconding Phil's idea....I'd love to see one of your recipes!

(PS - have you checked out the archived recipes/postings we have on bbq stuff? Raine, one of our BBQ mavens really had some goodies!)

Well unfortunatly I haven't been able to cook anything outside due to the drought. As it looks now it will be March or untill we get a substancial rain. I have been dying to do some cooking outside but with the burn ban going on it has been impossible because I use my smoker in the driveway which is in the front, and I live on a pretty busy intersection that has a lot of police patrols. I called the Allen PD to see if I could do it but they said if I was seen with the smoker going I would be fined....so I guess I'll have to wait a bit.

My sauces allways vary but the Main ingrediants are:

Kayro syrup (light)
Molasses (I prefer Grandma's)
Vinager (white, apple cider, and red wine depending on the flavor I am looking for)
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Tomato paste
Water
Black Pepper
Rosemary
Thyme
Ginger powder

I use these as a base then start grabbing things out of the cabinet. I rarely make it the same way twice and adjust it as I reduce it. I cook the sauce for about 45 minutes to an hour. Pork I tend to use more spices to add anything from flavor to heat depending on who is going to be eating it.

My Mom used to make a sweet BBQ sauce from crabapple jelly or apple jelly if you can't find crab apple jelly, ketchup and soy sauce with a little black pepper sometimes she would add garlic powder.It would be put on chicken the last few minutes of grilling and it sure was good.I have made it but I never measured the amounts- to the best of my recollection-it's about 1/2 cup crabapple ( apple) jelly,1/4 cup ketchup and about 2-3 tablespoons soy sauce.Whisk all together.Boy this sure brings back memories- I can't wait for the snow to thaw now to get at the grill!!!
