Good finishing sauce for a pork butt.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I've been working hard on a BBQ sauce today that's good with pork. I have tried a few options so far and I haven't really been impressed. Just looking for some ideas?

This was my try today.. Minus the measurements I been playing with a few things. However i did put chili powder in it and the flavor is over powering.

 

 

2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2½ cups finely chopped onion
2 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
4 Tablespoons sweet molasses
1/3 cup raw organic apple cider vinegar
1 6-ounce can organic tomato paste
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt
Several grinds fresh black pepper
1½ cups water
I added a small amount of Whisky to this as well?

If there is one thing that I have learned about making tomato based sauces it is that the first thing you have to do is make ketchupicon_biggrin.gif. Look at your ingredients and then compare them to the ingredients listed on a bottle of ketchup. See the similarity? The simplest easiest way to make a tomato based sauce is to start with a bottle of ketchup and add your spices and sugars that suit your tastes.

OK, enough preaching, this is a sauce that I like on pork and chicken-

 

35oz bottle of ketchup
2 cups of light brown sugar
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup apple juice
2 TBS Worcestershire sauce
1 TBS granulated garlic
1 TBS granulated onion
1 TBS black pepper
El Yucateco Habenero hot sauce to taste

Simmer on low-medium heat until it is very hot, stirring ocassionally.
