I am looking for suggestions for some sauces and rubs that I can make at home. We don't care for the vinegar-based sauces in our house, but we do like tomato-based ones. We like thicker sauces that are sweet but not overpoweringly so, with a little heat (I am a fan of more heat than everyone else, so I can tweak a recipe that is hotter). we like BBQ on most any type of meat, and I am planning on smoking some ribs in the near future, so a sauce that I could use for that would be great.
As for the rub, we like the Memphis dry rub that we have had in restaurants before. Generally we prefer a rub that is, like the sauce, a little sweet with a little heat.
We eat quite a bit of chicken and pork, so if there are ideas for sauces and rubs for those meats, that would be appreciated. I have been directed to Jeff's recipes that I can buy, so I may give those a shot, but I like to keep my options open. Thanks for any help.
