Cherry based bbq sauce or what would you use?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I was given some nicely seasoned cherry wood.

So I thought I would do a few racks of ribs to see what it tastes like.

Does anyone have a cherry based sauce or does someone have a sauce that goes well with cherry wood for ribs?

Take care,

I used cherry on my last ribs ... never heard of a cherry sauce though ...
I think I'd start with a cherry liqour and look for a cherry ice cream topping or such and experiment with that ...
Just found a commercial product that uses cherry jam, honey, molasses, spices and some mustard.
Hope that helps ...

I think my favorite wood is cherry. This past weekend my husband and I split smoking duties. I used T-Bones recipe for a sauce that had applesauce in it...It came out excellent. We had a little contest type thing and I won over my husbands recipes! PDT_Armataz_01_28.gif

Here's the link to the recipe

For a cherry based sauce I would go with a cherry liquor, maybe a Kir. Maybe even get a kool-aid unsweetened cherry flavored pack and use that in your rub recipe. You would get the cherry flavor for sure. Spritz with cherry juice. I have a jar of sour cherry preserves, you could probably mix that in with a sauce...

Thanks for the replies.

That one T-Bone has looks good.

Any other sauce recipes that go good with cherry wood and ribs?

Take care,

I really like cherry wood too. As for sauce, I couldn't tell you. Im sure you'll figure some thing out. Good luck.

Here is a link to a farm stand store up the road from me. I love their cherry juice concentrate(goes a long way) and I have found many uses for it including trying it in a bbq sauce....very tasty!!

Hey Brian,
If you follow that link Debi put in her reply, they have a cherry applesauce, that might go well with the recipe for T-Bones sticky apple ribs. Come to think of it, there are a lot of flavored applesauces that you could use in a que sauce, (peach, etc...)

i usually prefer cherry wood for my smokes. i've been using some sweet birch lately with some really good results. as far as a sauce try a base sauce with crushed marichino cherries i don't have any recipes but but i have been thinking on something with them in they sound like they would be dynamite on poultry.

Check out www.certifiedangusbeef.com . They have a recipe called Brisket with Cherry BBQ sauce. It is KC Masterpiece Original with adders. Could provide insight into what you need to develop your own or just use their recipe.

One thing you could try is what I call cherry extract.

Cherry Extract.

1 cup of fresh or frozen cherries
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
3 tablespoons of sugar
1/4 cup of rum
2 cups of water

Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 25-30 mins.
Strain and let cool for an hour.
Add to favorite sauce.

I've added marichino cheeries and juice to my BBQ sauce before with good results - carmelizes nicely. Pomegranite juice is good to especially on pork.
