    With my wife not gettin around too well since her knee replacement, I've managed to coax her BBQ recipe out of her. As you can see, it's a lengthy BBQ sauce recipe and she didn't think she could stand long enough to do it. I really like this stuff. I prefer it over any store-bought stuff.
    Here it is. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I.

    Colleen's BBQ Sauce

    ¼ …....Cup Worcestershire Sauce
    ½ ….....Stick Butter
    2 …......Garlic Cloves crushed
    1 …......Small Onion finely chopped
    1 Tbs....Extra Virgin Olive Oil

    Saute the above ingredients

    3 ½ C …...Ketchup
    1 C ….......Cup Brown Sugar
    1 ¼ tsp…..Onion powder
    1 ¼ tsp…..Garlic powder
    1 ½ tsp ….Kosher Salt
    1/4 tsp.....Coriander
    1 tsp ….....Cumin
    1 tsp ….....Ginger
    1 tsp ….....Chili Powder
    1/4 tsp .....Marjoram Leaves
    1 tsp ….....Paprika
    1 tsp ….....Oregano
    ½ tsp …....Cayenne Pepper
    ¼ tsp …....Thyme
    1 Tbs …....Coarse Ground Pepper
    1/8 tsp …..Liquid Smoke (be careful with this, a little goes a long way)
    1/2 C …....Apple Cider Vinegar
    1/2 C .…...Mustard
    2 Tbs …....Honey

    After you have sauted the top four items, mix all of the ingredients into a sauce pan and simmer for two hours with lid on.

    For those of you that copied this sauce recipe, I have edited it.
    Prior to my edit is the way that I made my last batch and it turned out great. After my wife went back over it, she realized a couple of mistakes she made. But all is good.
    Hope ya all like it...

    That is a good looking sauce... what about puttting the sauce in the smoker for 2 hrs., and omitting the liquid smoke? Then you could actually change the flavor of the smoke - hickory, mesquite, apple, pear, ect.

    That sounds good.
    Problem with this sauce tho is I liked it real well but everyone that said they were goin to try it never got back with me. I must be a loner on this one.
    LOL. Oh well ya win some and lose some.

    Silverwolf, I'm on it. My last smoke I just brushed chili flavored ketchup on everything.[​IMG] Pretty poor result indeed.

    I have a smoke planned for early next week, plan on making your sauce without any mods. You'll get some feedback, too. You said the original recipe was off a little... can you find out the changes?

    Keep 'em coming.

    I edited my recipe. What you see is the edit. I'm hoping it's right now. When she wrote this down, she just got home from total knee replacement and was on a lot of pain killers and stuff.
    I hope it works out.

    Sounds really good, I will definately be trying this.
    I wish my wife had a recipe I could share, but my wife can't even cook, unless you count reheating left overs from what I have already cooked. lol
  15. I'm with ya brother. Leftovers and maybe shake-n-bake. If it's easy it's for her. lol But she knows I love to cook and she loves to eat it so I can't complain.

    I'm sure her sauce will be a lot better than my ketchup. Tell her thanks for the recipe and I really hope she's feeling better.

    I've made the sauce, and tomorrow (tune in for the Qview) it'll go on chicken breasts, quarters, and some country style ribs.

    It's a good tasting sauce, it already got the thumbs up [​IMG]from my wife and two sons.
