Hubby brought home six BIG Turkey Legs, andwants me to smoke them.

THEN he wants to put Sweet and Sour Sauce on them instead of BBQ sauce. 

I'll be using Pecan to smokethem.

Anybody got a good S&S recipe??( I hate to buy a bottle of LaChoy for $6 a 6 oz bottle)

Are you talking, the fruity Duck Sauce condiment for Eggrolls on the table or The Sweet and Sour on S&W Pork, Chicken or Shrimp at Chinese Restaurants? In the 70's Mom cooked Ribs with the recipe below, called it Sweet and Sour Ribs...JJ

 Zesty Apricot Glaze n' Sauce

1T Veg Oil

1/3C Ketchup

1/4C Fine Diced Onion

1/4C Red Wine Vinegar

1/4C Honey

1T Soy Sauce

1tsp Grated Fresh Ginger

1tsp Worcestershire Sauce

1tsp Molasses

1tsp Smoked Paprika or regular

1/2tsp Dry Mustard mix in 1tsp Water, set aside.

1/2tsp Celery Salt

1/2tsp Black or White Pepper

1/4tsp Cayenne or Chipotle

1ea Clove Garlic, minced

12oz Apricot or Peach Preserves*

Place a small pan over low heat and add the 1T Oil.

Add the Onions, Ginger and Garlic. Sweat just until tender and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Set aside to cool.

Combine all but the Preserves in a Food Processor.

Puree until just combined. 

Add the Preserves to the Processor and Pulse to combine.

Place all back in the pan you used to sweat the veg and gently simmer to reduce to desired thickness.

Adjust Sweetness and Seasoning, adding Sugar/Vinegar, Salt and Pepper or Cayenne to your Taste.

Makes about 2 1/2 Cups. Store in Refrigerator..

Note*...Just about any Fruit Preserves would work. Pineapple, Peach/Mango, Orange Marmalade, or mix 'em up....JJ
