Liquid smoke is not crucial for a good barbecue sauce. It's optional.

There are way too many styles of BBQ Sauce to pick just one.

RB, I'm going to steal your basic cause it looks good to me.

Hope you don't mind if I tweek it.

The Chief has it correct.
Start with a basic recipe and adjust it to your individual taste as you create your own wonderful taste treat.
Keep in mind you can always add but it's difficult to subtract.

Experimentation is not only fun but it's the only way we learn in this life.

And when an experiment doesn't turn out as we'd like?

Try, try again and the dogs sure don't mind.
Sure. But its great just as it is. A combination of SC, GA and NC styles in one. Every eat at Sonny's BBQ? Years ago I wanted to make their sauce and it took me years to get it to taste identical. Its identical to their old recipe. Not so much today.

Its not crucial or required.
In my case the food will already have the smoke flavor as I smoke the food first. Or I grill or BBQ the food. This is the only time I use it.
This sauce is not designed to be used during cooking. Its designed to be served at the table.
We put it in squirt bottles and just put one or two on the table and let each person add as they like.

Thanks for the good tips everyone. It sure was fun making that sauce. Might become a bit of an addiction for me.

I'm happy you got great results, and had fun creating your very, own sauce. Keep this up and you'll have the whole neighborhood knocking on your door.

Next challenge, create your own dry rub.

RB, I always make the first batch as per the recipe.

And I'm sure it's good. (That's why I'm going to steal it)

I just might tweek it because it's what I do with Q sauces.

I'm one of those "Wonder if I add or subtract x what will happen" kind of people when it comes to Q sauce.

I've come to realize that I'll never be satisfied with only one Q sauce recipe.


KC, I'm with the Chief in that I'm glad you enjoyed making "your" sauce.

Yes it can become an addiction as there are so many varieties of sauce and so many foods to pair them with.

And don't worry about the whole neighborhood knocking on your door.

For the time being it will only be us at DC. rapping for a taste.

And you can always

I agree with the general sentiment here. Making your own sauce and rubs justs gives more of a feeling that it's "mine", even if I started with suggestions from someone else.

But when the sweet scent of grilled food drifts through the neighborhood on the summer breezes, it's amazing how many folks will stop in just to say hi!

I know I'm on the tail end of this subject, but an ingredient I always use in mine is a healthy splash of Jack Daniel's, with the rest of the usual stuff. I don't like drinking it, but it sure makes my sauce extra special.

Another nice change is using jelly or marmalade for the sweet component in the sauce.

It is also a great way to use up some of the odds and ends that tend to accumulate in the back of the refrigerator.

Of course you can use equivalent products to replace the Amoretti products. It won't be the same, but it will still be really good!


BTW, after we finished the video, I finished off that whole darn chicken!
Thanks. For A long time I wondered what exactly you do. And what was the product you worked with. Duh! So I go to the home site. Now how hard was that to do. Geesh, sometimes I am so slow. But that chicken did look good.

I just asked Pirate if he was going to cook the 'tenderloin' strips for supper with onions and gravy. He came out of the kitchen with two hot dogs. "That doesn't look like tenderloin with onions and gravy." See, I do catch on eventually. You just have to be patient with me.
