Pleasant’s Homemade BBQ Sauce

bbq-sauceMy daddy and I cooked out on the grill most every weekend.  He would grill and smoke everything from homemade sausage, fish, steaks, chicken, ribs, and shrimp.  You name it; he probably cooked it on the grill.  The only thing we didn’t cook a lot of was pork – not sure why.  Occasionally we would grill pork chops. 

He was always creating his sauces from scratch.  This sauce is dark and rich with that bite of vinegar.  The best; I hope you enjoy!

Feel free to tweak it with a little something extra from time to time (mustard, molasses, fresh cut herbs, lemon, bacon; the combinations are limitless).

1/2 cup olive oil

1 stick butter

1 pint catsup

1 pint vinegar

1 tbl. Tabasco

1 small bottle Worcestershire sauce

1 tbl. Brown sugar

1 tbl. Onion juice

1 clove garlic minced (optional)

3 tbl. Salt

Black and red pepper to taste – he used lots!

Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil and simmer until you get the consistency you desire. This recipe makes a lot of sauce and is good barbeque sauce for all meats and chicken.  Keeps well.

BE CAREFUL NOT TO DIP INTO MAIN CONTAINER OF SAUCE.  POUR SOME INTO ANOTHER CONTAINER SO TRANSFER OF MEAT JUICES WON’T CONTAMINATE.
