MY OWN BBQ SAUCE

I developed this recipe to complete the cooking of my BBQ Brisket and to serve for those who believe you just can't eat BBQ without sauce on it. The fact is, people should first try any meat dish without any BBQ sauce on it because they may be covering up the best meat they have ever eaten. Restaurants use the sauce for the purpose of covering up their meat because they have either boiled the meat first (it leaves it a gray color) or it just is not as good as the BBQ you are going to cook following these recipes..

TIP: If someone asked for sauce, serve it on the side. Tell them to try the meat without the sauce first and explain to them they probable have never had any meat with this great of flavor and they shouldn't automatically cover it up with sauce.

What you need.

1-24 oz. Bottle of ketchup

1-18 oz bottle of BBQ sauce (I use Wal-Mart brand in Honey style)

1-small can of Mexican style Rotel (or use 1 cup of any salsa)

1-medium onion chopped

2-tablespoons of minced garlic

2-cups of brown sugar

½ cup of TEXAS BBQ RUB (you can add more if you want more spice)

½ cup of pineapple juice (you can use orange)(I also use crushed pinapple)

2 tbls of worcestershire sauce

2 tbls of mustard (yellow prepared)

approx. 2 bottles of water from the empty ketchup bottle

1 can water from empty Rotel can

1 bottle of water from the empty BBQ sauce bottle

This recipe makes about 4 quarts of BBQ sauce. You will use some of it to finish off the brisket and the other to serve to folks if they want it. It keeps for days in the frig if you don't use all of it.

Mix ketchup, BBQ sauce, Rotel, and garlic in a large pot. Start cooking on the stove at medium temp. Add the water (you will get out all of the extra sauce from the bottles this way). Stir in garlic and brown sugar. Stir in the rub. Add the chopped onion, worcestershire sauce, and mustard. Bring sauce to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Add pineapple juice. Let simmer for at least 1 hour (longer is better). I usually simmer mine for about 2 hours.

This recipe calls for quite a bit of water added to it...I cut way back on the amount of water I used the 2nd time I made this sauce and I was much happier with the consistency. I would recommend cutting back on the water added.

As far as the ribs go....very easy. Use whatever rub you would like. Remove your ribs from their package. Remove the membrane on the non-meaty side. (some don't do this...it's not really necessary but I do it anyway) Pat ribs dry with paper towels and get a corner started on the membrane...pull with paper towel. Should come off easily with a paper towel.

Rub ribs in worchester sauce and then coat with whatever rub you want to use. Place on a smoker. Try to hold your temp between 200-225. For the first 3 hours just keep an eye on your temperature. At the 3 hour mark, wrap your ribs in aluminum foil and back in the smoker for 2 more hours. At the 2 hour mark remove from the foil and place back in the smoker for 1 hour. I also rub a little of my BBQ sauce on the ribs during that 1 hour period. Remove and belly up to the table! smile

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask...glad to help!

Thanks for the receipe and tips to cook ribs. But have two questions:

Texas BBQ rub? do you make your own seasoning or buy it?

Give me your tips for cooking a Boston Butt.

Maybe a "northern" can learn how to BBQ.

Can not want to try sauce.

If you google "Texas BBQ Rub" click on the first link and go to "order" on the far left....you will see the rubs. Hands down the best i've ever used. I even use the stuff on my scrambled eggs in the morning! Unbelievably good. A guy that lives near Houston makes it. I'm sold...that's all I know! smile

Here is what I do for my Pork Butt's/shoulders:

You need to cook the shoulder at 200 to 225 degrees for at least 6 to 14 hours depending on the size of the roast you are cooking. Again, as with brisket cooking the idea is to cook at low temperatures for long periods of time until we get the internal temperature of the shoulder up to about 200 to 210 degrees internal temperature.

I personally wrap this piece of meat during cooking (about 2/3 of the way thru the cook) but if you want to you do not have to wrap it.

I use the Simple 1-2-3 method of applying Worcestershire sauce and then Texas BBQ Rub and place on the pit. Coat heavily with Texas BBQ Rub (you can use the original rub or our brisket blend). Two or three big hand fulls will give you the amount of rub you will need. If you have a side with more fat on it than the other you can put the fat side up. But this piece of meat has a lot of fat internally so it will stay moist under low temperatures.

When you finish the shoulder you can pull the meat off the bone (if it is cooked right you can simply pull the bone from the middle of the shoulder and just have the meat left to chop or shred) or you can shred the meat or cut it up and make a chopped pork butt sandwich. This meat is excellent for sandwiches or just eating plain. Alot of folks like to add a BBQ sauce to the pulled pork and you can use the recipe we gave to you earlier to add to the pulled pork.

TIP: For a bit of added flavor to the meat, sprinkle Texas BBQ Rub over the pulled pork and enjoy the added flavor that Texas BBQ Rub brings to the meat.

There is a site devoted to the Weber smoky mountain. google for "weber bullet" and you should be able to find it. It has many fine recipes and detailed instructions.

Many folks cook butts overnight.

    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
    • Congrats on the bird
