Homemade BBQ Sauce – Fire It Up

Nothing fires up summer like homemade BBQ sauce.  Can you smell the peppers and woodsmoke in the air yet? :)

While I am partial to KW’s homemade barbecue sauce I still experiment with different sauces from time to time.  Here is a homemade BBQ sauce recipe I recently ran across on a blog.  I haven’t used it yet but plan to.

Dri Aged Ribeye

2 cups ketchup
1 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups water
6 stalks celery, chopped
5 bay leaves
5 large cloves garlic, peeled and pressed
1-2 large onions, chopped
1 stick butter (1/4 lb)
8 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons paprika
1/4 teaspoon hot cayenne pepper
This is to be served in a gravy bowl or dish alongside barbecued beef, pork, or chicken, rather than as a basting-type barbecue sauce.
Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Strain.
Season to taste, remembering that the flavor will change as it cools. Add salt, pepper, hot pepper, or garlic/onion powder to make the sauce your own! Click here to view rest of article.  Click here to view rest of article.

That ought to do it for you.  If you aren’t hungry yet you just aren’t trying hard enough…..I think I’ll cut this short and get outside and fire up the grill.  Thanks for stopping by.
