Yet Another Homemade BBQ Sauce

First time poster here…

I use this recipe for any type of meat.

In a small saucepan combine:

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce or ketchup
  • 1/4 cup of what ever type of store bought BBQ sauce you have (optional)
  • A liberal squirt of corn syrup
  • Crushed garlic (2-3 cloves)
  • A dash or three of hot sauce
  • Chili powder
  • Chilies (the dried flakes)
  • Tablespoon of cider vinegar
  • Dash of liquid smoke
  • Depending on the meat, an assortment of spices:
    • Cumin (1/4 tsp - dominant spice)
    • Ground mustard
    • Cayene pepper
    • Kosher salt
    • Fresh ground black pepper
    • Dash of ginger
    • Dried basil and/or oregano

Cook everything on a low-mid temp until it begins to bubble. Then mix 1 tblspn of cornstarch in a half cup of cold water and add to the sauce pan.

When mixture is bubbling and has thickened up, set aside for about a few minutes.

Run through a sieve or strainer.

Brush on meat about 10 - 15 minutes before it is ready to be taken off the grill. I found that the cornstarch mixture will allow your sauce to stick to the meat as opposed to running off.

Great first post! That sounds yummy.
