I have tried to make my own BBQ sauce before and it was always just come out OK but not great. The last time I made it, there was too strong of a flavour of ketchup, the time before that, too much vinegar. This time, I think I finally got it but be warned it is a bit spicy. I decided to play with “Blair’s 2 am Reserve Extract” that I got for a gift a while back. I only used a few drops and this thing packs a punch. You could use any hot sauce or powder for this but I suggest not using a vinegar based product.
- In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients.
- Bring to a boil over high heat.
- When everything starts boiling, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 1 hour 15 minutes, stirring frequently.
- Taste at about the half way mark and adjust heat or any spices as needed
