I've been very impressed with this smoker.The slow smoker attachment is actually a cold smoking device.Made smoked cheese,scallops and found the flavor to be just right.

Hey Wes...the sauce just ain't the same without the Makers Mark!post #85 of 1003/9/13 at 6:48pmpost #86 of 1003/27/14 at 1:58pm
Thank you for sharing your family's recipes, Bill...and thanks for your advice on my Pork Loin Back Ribs (which are in the foil-wrapped stage of your recommended steps right now). I wish I had found this before, but I have a recipe for sweet Texas-style sauce that my husband loves, and I just made a big batch. Next time I'll try the BDSE recipe out on him! :)

Made your BBQ sauce last night for use this weekend. It is awesome. MM wasn't in the budget, so I went with some JB I had on hand. Next time perhaps. Thanks for sharing such an heirloom.post #88 of 1006/25/15 at 9:27ampost #89 of 1007/8/15 at 12:31pmQuote:Originally Posted by PGSmoker64
I joined this site several years ago as an experienced but curious BBQ guy. I smoked a lot of meat before joining but much more since joining.
I have a couple of outstanding sauce recipes that I have held close to the breast for sentimental reasons but after learning so much from my friends here at SMF, I decided it was time to put all my cards on the table.
This first recipe is an Eastern Carolina style BBQ Sauce - known as Dip around Lexington, NC from where my family hails. This is a recipe that has been in my family for over a century, so you can understand why I was reluctant to reveal it, even though I'm sure others have something similar - this one will make your pork butts come alive!!!!!
3 Quarts of Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup Ketchup (Catsup)
5 oz. Worsty sauce
10 oz. French's yellow mustard
3/4 cup salt (I use sea salt but regular iodized is fine) - I also usually cut back on the salt
1/4 cup fresh ground black pepper
1/2 oz crushed red pepper
4 oz of your favorite hot sauce (I cut back on the red pepper and hot sauce depending on the audience and it doesn't affect flavor)
Mix all ingredients in a large pot and bring it to a boil. Once it boils it is ready for use as a mop or for canning.
Makes about 1 gallon, which is enough to mop a 70 pound pig.
I can it using the hot water bath method if necessary. This is a fantastic and tasty finishing sauce for minced or pulled pork. My relatives in Lexington, NC swear that my BBQ is better than anything they can buy in the self appointed capital of Southern BBQ!!!!
And here is my special sauce recipe that friends, family, acquaintances, and strangers who have tasted it tell me I can sell.
Bill's BDSE Sauce
Makes about 2 quarts of sauce - I always double or quadruple the recipe. The sauce can be canned using the water bath method and keeps for months.
2 cups Ketchup - I use Heinz because it's SLOW GOOD
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1-1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1-1/2 tsp granulated onion or onion powder
1-1/2 tsp granulated garlic or garlic powder - I always use the granulated!!!!
1-1/2 tsp dry mustard
Juice and zest from 1 lemon - do NOT substitute prepackaged lemon juice - about 2 tbs of juice
2 TBS Worsty Sauce (Worcestershire for the purists)
1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1 TBS light corn syrup
1 TBS molasses
2 TBS of your favorite bbq rub minus the salt
2/3 cup of water
1/3 cup of Makers Mark Whiskey
Mix all ingredients in a pot and cook over low heat for 2 hours. Use immediately. Refrigerate leftovers - keeps about a month or two, or can using the water bath method. You can also dress up competition ribs by adding a little honey for shine prior to application.
I tried making my sauce using a different rub base than what I normally use and it didn't quite taste the same, so to make sure your sauce comes out as good as mine here is the "spice mix" I use...
8 ounces of Paprika
4 ounces of white sugar
2 tablespoons of granulated onion
2 tablespoons of granulated garlic
When I add the rub mix I use a big tablespoon from the silverware drawer and add it by the heaping spoonfuls!
It took me several months of trying to dial in this recipe and it comes out perfect every time.
It might seem to you that there is too much sweet, but believe me this sauce is the perfect balance of flavors. Please try it and let me know what you think.
I can't make enough of it, so it must be good. I use it on everything.
Like I said - Best Damn Sauce Ever - Bill's BDSE (Betsie) Sauce.
So are the items in blue what you use for "your favorite rub mix"? Stupid question i know...just want to make sure its the same as yours.post #90 of 1002/21/16 at 4:50ampost #91 of 1006/25/16 at 2:16pmpost #92 of 1008/20/16 at 8:20pmHad a pork shoulder in the smoker today and ran across this thread. Perfect time to give this recipe a shot. I halved the recipe and had plenty of time to mix and heat as suggested. What more can be said other than this is a great sauce. The whole family used it generously on abnormally large pulled pork sandwiches and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. I still have 1/2 pint left so I'm in good shape for tomorrow.
Thank you for sharing. Great addition to the culinary arsenal...

I know it's hard to give up those family secrets but man am I glad you did.
I gave you a shoutout in this imgur post but I did not include your recipe in the event you wished it to stay on MSF. Thanks again!post #96 of 1002/12/17 at 7:47ampost #97 of 1002/12/17 at 9:54ampost #98 of 1002/13/17 at 8:15am
This is on my short list of recipes I want to try. Weather permitting I will be smoking some ribs or butt this coming weekend and I will report back with the outcome.
Wish me luck.post #99 of 1002/13/17 at 8:25am
This is an old thread, but I can bear witness that this sauce is great! Bill (PGSmoker64) doesn't come around the forums much anymore, but his recipes live on!
If you happen to check in Bill, how's it going brother!?!
