Now here it is… by texaskillet

Some folks love sauce, some people prefer a rub, I think there is a time, place and meat product for both to shine.

Pulled pork for example, really is a sauce thing. I posted my pulled pork method not too long ago and as promised here is the sauce for said pork pleasantry.

Before we get started I really do feel it is important that everyone on God’s green earth understand that bbq sauce is MEANT TO BE TAMPERED WITH.

You should never accept sauce just because it’s what you bought or it’s what is put in front of you. NEVER QUIT NEVER SURRENDER! Always change it to suite your needs/tastes/desires/wants/level of intoxication/etc..

  1. 1 cup of ketchup – you can also start with paste if you want, yes – water it down.
  2. 3 tablespoons of molasses, maybe 4 if you like it a bit earthy
  3. 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, light OR dark
  4. 4 tablespoons of vinegar
  5. 4 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
  6. 1 tablespoon of dry mustard powder
  7. Pinch of celery salt
  8. 1 clove of roasted garlic
  9. About 3 tablespoons of dried onion mixture or just plain ¼ cup of chopped onion
  10. 3 tablespoons of lemon juice, more if you like more tang
  11. About 4-5 squeezes on the honey bear, to cut the tang if you want to go that route
  12. Dash of salt
  13. Super secret ingredient – Smoked Black Pepper.. yay!
  14. If desired, add half a habanero or pepper of your choice for some HEAT

Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan and then get up to a boil. When boil is achieved, stir, cover and simmer for about 50 minutes until thickened. During this time you can go about tweaking with this or that ingredient. After the 50 minutes is up, let the sauce cool and then jar it up for future use or heck, dump it in the crock pot with the pulled pork, slather it on some ribs, use it on bbq burgers. I think you’ll like it. YAHOOOOO Let’s start up the Que!!!

My cousin makes a similar BBQ sauce, but on account of us being Northeasterners and not Southerners, she uses maple syrup in addition to the honey and molasses. This looks delicious.

You should tell your cousin to try the smoked black pepper, it really adds a hint of that smokiness that us Texans love. 😉

[…] Whenever you enjoy them, try them with some of TxK’s BBQ sauce! […]
