Sweet barbeque sauce

Recommended Posts

The wife and I went out to eat last Sat. nite-the American Legion in Fergus Falls. The place has great barbequed  ribs. They have a rather sweet sauce on them and we were trying to figure out what they use to sweeten it up. Wife said brown sugar, but I said its not that. My guess was some kind of jam. The consistency of the sauce seemed kind of jam like. Anybody have any thoughts on sweetening up a barbeque sauce but not making it sickeningly sweet.

I haven't tried em on my ribs yet, but on football Sundays we mix sweet baby rays Chipotle BBQ sauce with grape jelly for meatballs in the crokpot,  probably a 2 part sauce to 1 jelly. Not sure if this helps but it is a good combo.

I have added strawberry jam to BBQ sauce to give it a different taste. Goes good with any Pork

 

​Me too, I add 1/4 cup of my wife's homemade chunky strawberry jam  and a 1/4 cup of honey to 1 cup of sweet baby rays and a tsp of heat.

How about chicken thighs, I'm definitely gonna mix up a batch of sauce and jam and give it a shot. 

​Mix up some good OJ, ( use the pulpy type)  apricot jam, and a bit of soy sauce....el yum. :)

I guess I wasn't too far off when I was thinking of sweet stuff to use and the two things that came to mind were apricot jam and orange marmalade.

​You can never  be "off" when coming up with BBQ sauce ideas!!  I've also added real maple syrup, now THAT'S good! Gives it a maple tang.

That's what's going on the apple-wood smoked ribs today.....:P

A Buddy of mine used to sell pulled pork sandwiches at softball games.  He used Black Currant jam in his sauce.  Great stuff.  He always ran out.

Sorry I'm kinda late to the party, but for anyone who likes a sweeter BBQ sauce, do a search for Big Butz BBQ. Their cranberry sauce is SO good you won't believe it.

I would stay away from corn syrup.    The jam's and jelly's mentioned are great.  I tend to use brown sugar in my homemade stuff along with the jam or jelly's.  Honey is also great.   good luck.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
