Cheerwine BBQ sauce

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Here’s a sauce that recently appeared in the South Carolina State newspaper. They referred to it as an award winning sauce although they never elaborated. Looked pretty interesting although I haven’t tried it. For non-southerners, Cheerwine is a cherry style soft drink. Tastes like Robitussin to me but I imagine it would work well in a sauce.

Cheerwine BBQ Sauce

Mix the following in a large pan over high heat:
1 12 oz can of Cheerwine
5 ounces molasses
6 ounces brown sugar
10 ounces of your favorite BBQ sauce. (Personally I’d use my own home-made bone-suckin style sauce here but to each their own!)
2 ounces white vinegar
¼ tsp white pepper
¼ tsp cayenne
¼ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp crushed red pepper

Bring to a boil while stirring.

PS, it also mentioned the addition of one ounce of liquid smoke but that strikes me as borderline blasphemy!

Sounds interesting, may have to give it a try sometime.

This is the "house" sauce of Smoke-n-Stokes in Greenville SC. I believe Cheerwine is even the sponsor of their BBQ team. I'm not a huge fan of it since it is pretty sweet, but they have a whole stack of trophies that says I don't know what I'm talking about. Place has pretty good BBQ all the way around and they do a killer pulled pork stuffed potato.

Interesting. I'll have to give it a try next time I'm in Greenville. Pretty cool town.

Not just southerners anymore! Cheerwine is readily available throughout Topeka. I am a Diet Cheerwine fan. My work buys a case of it for our fridge just for me!

Sounds disgustingly sweet to me, but then again, that's me. Mr. Minimum sugar. I should make some for all the folk I know that b&^$@! about my sauces being too tart or tangy. Whining whimps, anyhow. Maybe I'll just smoke some LOLLYPOPS and serve 'em that...Hmmm...icon_twisted.gif
