Hey there Kevin. Thanks, I think I'm gonna order one of these, with a few tweeks.
The "Secret" is...
LOL. For real though, I kinda hijacked Jeff's Sauce recipe and made it my own. I take about a gallon or Root Beer (I like Sprechers, its a local brew that uses honey instead of sugar for sweetner, not sure how other would work, this is all I've ever used) Then I boil that down to a thick syrup (renders down to about 2-3 cups) and sub that for the molasses, and half the ketchup basically. I make larger batches since I usually smoke for large groups (usually around 200). Like Jeff's you can tweek the spices for hotter or sweeter sauce. I plane to make some bigger batches and bottle it.
Let me know if you want more specifics (minus giving out Jeff's secret recipe of course) don't want to step on his secrets.
