EP11005 – Homemade Barbecue Sauce!

Homemade Barbecue Sauce!

“Monday’s Menu!”
This is my homemade BBQ sauce recipe. This takes some time to do right, but the end result is something you will love. This is 100 times better than any store bought sauce… AND if you follow this exactly, as far as amounts, you can jar/can it and it will last months on your shelf.

The best part of this is that you can take my recipe, and tweak it to taste exactly the way you want it to. Just make this, then take 10oz out (when finished) and add things to it to see if you like it! If you get a winning mix, just add that to the recipe!

Here is what you need for this recipe!

Homemade Barbecue Sauce:

1 Block of Bacon Fat (from whole package of bacon)
3 Bell Peppers
3 Onions
3 Jalapeno Peppers
1 Clove garlic (minced well)
3 Cans Tomato Sauce (28oz)
6 cups Ketchup
2 cups water
1 small bottle of Merlot
2 1/2 cups Worcestershire Sauce
2/ 1/2 cups Brown Sugar (Light or Dark)
1 1/2 cups Cider Vinegar
3/4 cup Lemon/Lime Juice (I use both)
1 cup Unsulfured Molasses
3/4 cup Frank’s Red Hot
3/4 cup Spicy Brown Mustard
2 Tablespoons Black Pepper (Coarsely Ground preferred)
2 1/2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
2 Tablespoons Top Shelf Bourbon (Before & after cooking)
3 Tablespoons Wright’s Hickory Liquid Smoke

Stock Pot
Food Processor
Sharp Knife
Cutting Board
Measuring Cups and Spoons

Watch the video silly!

    It was really fun making this sauce along with you! I could not find a small bottle of Merlot. Can you tell me how many ounces it is? I did not use alcohol this time but would like to next time. I added too much water in replacement so the sauce is watery so I am cooking it longer to get it to thicken up. I think I might try making your wing sauce next. Thanks for sharing!!

      Hey Tammy! Thank you so much for the comment! Also, THANK YOU for bringing to my attention that I did not mention how much Merlot to put in. I miss stuff like this all the time, and I LOVE when people catch it so that i can fix it! I put about 6 ounces of Merlot in, but could easily put in 8 ounces. So 6-8 ounces should do it. Add extra Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, or another SMALL can of paste… these can all help thicken the sauce too!
      Thanks again, I love hearing from people when they make this stuff! You made my day!
