We are busy cooking away this weekend, so look forward to lots of posts coming up. The grilled pork loin we're making has a lot of description, so we decided to do a separate blog for just the BBQ Sauce.
We started with another recipe, but put our own twist on it.
Here's what you'll need:
1 cup ketchup
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup and 2 Tbsp light brown sugar
1/2 cup and 2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
2 tsp mesquite flavored liquid smoke (or your favorite flavor)
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp celery seed
1/8 tsp cinnamon (ground)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 shot bourbon (Zack's bourbon of choice is Buffalo Trace)
Combine all of the ingredients in a cold, large sauce pan. Place on medium heat and bring to a boil for 5 minutes. Whisk until smooth.
Reduce heat to low and let simmer for about a half an hour.
Remove from heat and let it cool.
