The Great BBQ Sauce Contest

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I have tried many sauces and I have yet to find one that meets my needs. What I want is a sauce that Tickles my tongue with the first bite and then puts a little bit of heat on the back of my tongue. Someone out there has a recipe to blow us all away.
SO, what do do win. The title of an apron of best BBQ sauce on SMF. Judges will be your peers, but I will be the final judge. It will take a while to make these sauces, I hope that you will help me.

I will need the help of the best of the best to Crown a champion

Our official contest guy is "Fired Up" and you will need to run this by him. He can handle this in the way that he sees fit. If you are willing to throw in a custom printed apron then I am sure you can work out something with him as far as judging and such.

I will also PM him and let him know that you will be contacting him.

Sounds like fun to me.. just need to make sure we follow a few guidelines that we have already put in place to make sure everything is fair and square.

Great ideaPDT_Armataz_01_01.gif

Man....now I have to put the "Secret Recipe" back into the vault, relock the 8 locks, put the chains back on, re-hire security & have Norad go back to Def-con 2. This gets tiring every time I have to pull out my secret sauce.

Ok, I do not see any need for any sort of rules or regulations on your own sauce contest. Anyone who is willing to post their secret recipes then the more power to them. And if you are personally providing the prize then go for it. Have fun with it and let us know who's sauce you like the best. Just make sure that you post the winning recipe so that we can all share it.

best wishes

I'm thinking a Sombrero would be a better than a apron. icon_idea.gif

Guess grampy wasn't serious about contest

Well, instead of posting recipes, how about sending samples of the sauce to someone ? I for one, will not divulge my recipe because I'm in the beginning phases of getting it evaluated, tested & hopefully mass produced to market.

Anyone wanna have a kitchen full of sacues ?
(sorry, I'm not volunteering)

The Great BBQ Sauce Contest

I don't mind sharing mine, here it is:

¼ cup apple cider vinegar
½ cup water
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp prepared mustard (I use Zatarain’s Creole Mustard)
1½ tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
Juice of 1 thick lemon wedge (or 1 tsp)
2 or more ( I use a lot more) large cloves garlic, minced
Tabasco sauce (to taste)
1 diced onion ( fairly large pieces, julienne is good, too)
¼ cup (½ stick) butter or margarine
½ cup catsup
2 tbsp Worcestershire
1½ tsp liquid smoke (depending on the brand, really strong ones
require considerably less)

In saucepan, mix vinegar, water, sugar, mustard, pepper (black and cayenne),
salt, lemon, onion, Tabasco, garlic, and butter. Bring to a boil and then simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes. Add catsup, Worcestershire, and liquid smoke
and return to a boil. Then keep warm, but not boiling.

Makes a little less than 2 cups and can be refrigerated easily. I always have some in the refrigerator and use it as a sort of starter, whenever I make a new batch. Add the old with the catsup, Worcestershire and smoke.
