Smoked Jalapeno & Peach BBQ Sauce - Recipe & Q-View

Discussion in 'Sauces, Rubs & Marinades' started by smokincanadian, Sep 21, 2013.

  1. Hey Everyone, giving back for what you all have given to me.

    I looked around here for a recipe for smoked jalapeno bbq sauce and could not find one, so a little research and a little innovation and voila!

    Harvest time is coming, growing lots of vegetables, so I used some from my garden (tomatoes, thyme and of course the jalapeno's) for this BBQ sauce. Its pretty good right out of the pot, not too spicy, I wonder if that will change after the sauces sit 'canned' for a bit, but I think for the next one I make (researching tequila/mango/smoked jalapeno currently, getting ideas...) I will use more peppers.

    So first the pics and then the recipe to follow


    All the ingredients

    Forgot to include the peaches in the photo

    A cameo with all the ingredients in the pot

    And the pot without me in the photo

    Reached a boil



    And 'canned'

    I yielded a little over One and a half litres here

    I used:

    Fourteen Jalapeno's I smoked for six hours with hickory wood (while I smoked some ribs)
    Three fresh Peaches

    Three Tomatoes
    about four oz's tomato paste
    One and a half cooking onions
    Three cloves of garlic
    Three sprigs of Thyme
    Ninety ml of brown sugar
    375ml of molasses

    375ml apple cider

    300ml amber ale

    one tsp each of salt and pepper 

    two tsp mustard powder

    one and a half tsp each of cumin and paprika
    two and a half tablespoons of worstershire

    Chopped all things needing to be chopped (not the jalapeno's) and combined all in a pot.
    Brought to a boil, then simmered for four hours.
    Pureed it with a hand held blender, simmered after for another forty five minutes
    Sterilized some jars, and canned.

    Round one of bbq sauces complete.

    OK, OK the sauces looks amazing but did anyone notice the wooden spoon sitting in the pot? Totally cool. Where did you find that?
  6. Wow! Looks and sounds amazing, gonna have to try it out thanks for posting!

    P.S. Excellent choice of Red Amber Ale, Keith's is my favorite. Us Canadians know what's up when it comes to beer!
  7. It was a gift ibbones, I have a pair of them.

    If I could get Clancy's in Ontario Olmy I would have preferred to use that, but unfortunately its hard to come by (I'm a Moosehead guy) so the Keiths was second choice over other basic red ales.

    They are really cool.  My boys both play guitar and there are all kinds of guitar  paraphernalia here but no spoons.

    I and a buddy spent 2 weeks Fishing in Canada. We stayed at Wester's Camp on Lac Du-cerf, about 90 miles north of Ottawa. The local beer distributor let us mix a case of anything we wanted. We tried a variety but drank MANY cases of Labatt's Blue. That was 33 years ago. Great memories and awesome Beer!...JJ

    So I have made a variation of this three times now.  Thank you for the idea and the basis for the sauce I made.  I replace two of the jalapeños with habaneros use 8 peaches and use a lighter fruit based beer to compliment the peaches and offset a bit of the heat.  I'm making it again right now because I have friends coming in from out of town for the weekend and they begged that I make this.  Thanks again for a great idea!!!!
  11. Very happy to hear, excellent, Cheers!
