  1. So this morning i felt like trying my hand at making another sauce. I must say i think this one turned out AMAZING! Here's the recipie, give it a try and let me know what you think.

    Saute:
    1/2 of a large onion
    1 small red bell pepper
    1 jalapeno
    *used 2 turns of the pan of EVOO
    when all were translucent i added
    2T minced garlic
    2T of rub(mix of salt,black pepper, cayanne pepper, db sugar, chili powder,paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, dry mustard, and cumin)

    *sauteed over med heat

    Turn heat to low and
    Add:
    1 1/2 C Ketchup
    2T tomato paste (was planning to do 2 cups ketchup but ran out)
    1/2 C brown mustard
    1/2C molasses
    1 1/2C dark brown sugar
    2T worchhestire sauce
    1/4C apple cider vinegar
    1/4C pineapple juice
    1/4C orange juice(with pulp but prob doesnt matter)
    1/4C apple juice
    2 nibs of bourbon(i used jim bean)
    coarse ground fresh black pepper (didnt measure but pribably about a tablespoon)

    Simmer slowly over low heat so as not to burn for about 1 1/2-2 hours. I increased heat very slowly and reached a simmer about an hour in and then simmered stirring frequently until reduced and thickened to my liking.

    Added 1/2tsp of liquid smoke at the very end.

    I think it turned out smack yo momma good! Will be going on some ribs here shortly. If you try it please let me know what you think.
     
  2. Oh, forgot to add that near te end i used an immersion blender to smooth it out a bit. A fiod processor etc would do the job as well.
