I'm roasting 2 chickens to feed the kids. That's the easiest part. I also had to make up a batch of BBQ sauce. Best darn sauce I've ever used.
That has kept me jumping from the computer to the stove and back all morning.
I double this recipe when it's for more than the 2 of us.
3/4 cup and 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon ketchup
3/4 cup and 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon tomato sauce
1/2 cup and 1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 cup and 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
3 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon unsulfured molasses
1-3/4 teaspoons hickory-flavored liquid smoke
2-1/2 teaspoons butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
In a large saucepan over medium heat, mix together the ketchup, tomato sauce, brown sugar, wine vinegar, molasses, liquid smoke and butter. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, paprika, celery seed, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper.
Reduce heat to low, and simmer for up to 20 minutes. For thicker sauce, simmer longer, and for thinner, less time is needed. Sauce can also be thinned using a bit of water if necessary. Brush sauce onto any kind of meat during the last 10 minutes of cooking.
