Barbecues & Grilling Summertime is not the only time for this very popular form of cooking. Some people simply won't eat steak or ribs that are not cooked on the grill!

tomato based bbq sauce idea/ recipe

If you make a tomato based bbq sauce add a little bit of cocca to the mixture of spice. If making 1c of sauce add 1/4 tsp of cocca or less. Makes a fuller flavor sauce.
my recipe:

3/4c catsup
3 tlbs orange juice
3 tsp lemon juice
3 tlbs vinegar
mix well add :
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp oninon salt
1 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cocca
1 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp dry mustard

mix well and chill for 1 hr. or cook over low hear for 10 min. chill and serve.
I cook it when I know there will be leftovers. If I use the whole batch at one meal I don't bother cooking it
Do or do not. There is no try

Did you hear the one about the guy who stared at a can of frozen orange juice for 20 minutes because it said CONCENTRATE! (He's the same guy who tripped over the cordless phone). Snicker. Anyways, that's my question...a lot of people who use orange juice in their BBQ sauce recipes say to use so many Tbls's. of frozen concentrated orange juice. Before I go buy all of the ingredients to try your recipe, does your's call for 3 T. concentrate or 3 T. regular orange juice?

In a saucepan, over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onion and garlic, and cook gently, stirring for about 5 minutes. Add the ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, chile powder and cayenne. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, until the sauce thickens slightly about 20 minutes.

Hotter: more cayenne
Less hot: less cayenne
Use honey instead of sugar

3/4 cup ketchup
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon hot sauce -- or more to taste

Mix sugar, strawberries, vinegar, water, and black pepper in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Continue to cook at a slow boil for about 45 minutes or until thick. Remove from heat. Add ketchup, mustard, and hot sauce; mix really well. Yield 3 to 4 cups (about 20 servings).

1/2 cup margarine (NOT the tub kind--real margarine. I'd use butter myself)
3 teaspoons flour
1/3 cup water
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
3 tablespoons lemon juice
4 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Melt margarine in a small sauce pan over low heat. Stir in flour and cook until bubbly. Remove from heat and gradually add water , lemon juice, sugar, salt, pepper, thyme and Tabasco sauce. Cook over moderate heat stirring constantly until slightly thickened. When cool homogenize in the blender. Makes about 1 cup. Use on grilled chicken or fish.

NOTES : Add more Tabasco sauce if you prefer.
Can be frozen. Just stir well when defrosted.

Guess it has been a while since anyone posted a BBQ sauce recipe here but I have one and I wanna share it! ;-)

1 qt Ketchup
12-oz can of Tomato Juice
1 c Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp Hot Sauce of your choice
1 Tsp Mustard of your choice, prepared Mustard that is
1/4 c Liquid Smoke
2 Tbsp Butter, real thing!
1/2 c Chopped Onion
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder or 1/4 tsp of fresh pressed Garlic
Add Salt and Pepper to taste

Mix together in sauce pan and simmer

This mixture can be canned in pint jars (great idea for gift-giving along with a BBQ tools, etc!) or frozen for future use.
