ISO your favorite barbecue sauce

Hi, all. I'm pretty new to the forum, so if there's already a thread on this, please point me to it

We're renovating our kitchen, so I will be becoming intimately familiar with the grill this summer. I'm interested in making my own barbecue sauce(s), and was wondering if you experts could share some of your favorites. We like tomatoey sauces with some zest to them. Thanks.

GotGarlic...

Not to be evasive to your request, but have you considered creating your own "secret" bbq sauce. It can be part of the fun of outdoor cooking, bbqing etc. The amount of homemade bbq sauce recipes could run into the hundred of thousands with no two of them alike. If your family likes tomato based sauces that have some "zest" then start with a commercial sauce that you like and try to duplicate it, or use it as a base to add your own "secret" ingredients. Somethings to get you started may include,
Catsup, mustard, vinegar, Worchestershire, brown sugar, lemons, butter, salt pepper, garlic, apple juice, grated onion, grated apples, cayenne pepper, cloves, tabasco, allspice, celery seed, cumin, sage, wine and even whiskey just to mention a few. In the end it will be your creation and you will be happy with it. If I gave you one of my recipes you probably wouldn't like it and would start adding more of this....less of that. So don't rob yourself of the pleasure of creating your own. It, along with good food, fellowship, and time with your family and friends is what bbqing is all about. So be creative and...

Enjoy!!

Uncle Bob's got it right. I still like mom's version (ketchup, onions, brown sugar, mustard, and probably some other stuff I forgot but can't think of off the top of my head).

Just don't put in on the meat until the very end of smoking or grilling.

GotGarlic, not expert on BBQ sauces - just know what we like. One hint for you - check out the jam in your frig. Melted down and addiing a little something mades a wonderful BBQ sauce. Things I've added to any jam (apricot is wonderful with pork and chicken) is a little dry mustard, or red pepper flakes and any herbs/seasonings you especially like.

Plus doing this, it uses up all those darn near empty jam jars we all collect in the frig - at least I do! :)

Bone Suckin' Sauce is the bomb!!!!!! I use it all the time. Give me a beer-can chicken and a jar of Bone Suckin' sit me in a corner and I am quite for an hour. Also great in meatloaf.
I also enjoy Uncle Henry's BBQ Sauce. It has more of a quintessential smoky bbq flavor.
