    Anyone have a really good thin bbq sauce recipe?  Thanks
     
  2. This is an excellent basting sauce for chicken, beef or pork.  It contains no sugar so it doesn't burn easy.  It is best applied with a mop type brush.  I also put some in a shaker bottle to use at the table.

    6 ounces French's Prepared Yellow Mustard
    1/4 cup red wine vinegar
    3 teaspoons salt
    1 (1 1/4-ounce) can chili powder
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    1 tablespoon crushed red pepper
    water

    Add all ingredients to a Quart Mason Jar.  Fill the rest of the jar with water.  Place lid on jar and shake well to ensure good mix.  Let stand at least 24 hours before using.

  3. I'm lazy when it comes to sauce making.  I just take standard off the shelf bbq sauce and thin it out with apple cider or red wine  vinegar.  The favorite combo at my house is Sonny's sweet cut with red wine vinegar.

    Why not just thin out Jeff's sauce a little. When I smoke pork butts, I catch the juice, then de-fat it & mix it with Jeff's and toss the PP with it. It's very good.

    when in doubt...

    28oz. Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ Sauce
    12oz. Cherry Dr. Pepper
    2 Tbsp Brown Sugar

    Mix ingredients in sauce pan, bring to a simmer, funnel into hand-dandy $.99 condiment dispenser...apply to taste, repeat as needed. :cool:

    Don't recall where I found that recipe (sort of)...most likely one of the many websites I poke around at. Yes, it's cheating 'cause it's not original, blah, blah, whatever...it's quick and damn tasty! :icon_biggrin:

    This makes an awesome thin tangy sauce that you can adjust for your flavor and it's super easy.

    And I thought I had a good one, well anyway, lotsa fine people chipped in with some I'd like to try. I have a finishing sauce straight from Texas which works on anything, you can apply it thin or cook it down thicker if you'd like. PM me if anyone is interested, I live by it. Rock on.

  20. So I made this again because its awesome.  I used Tabasco for the hot pepper sauce, but this time I took half of the BBQ sauce and added cayenne pepper to it to spice it up a bit more for some friends who enjoy spicier sauces.  I must say the cayenne made a great addition if you like a little spicier version it worth a try.

    Again thanks for the recipe!
