Ok, I use to make my own BBQ sauce with fruit of the season, brown sugar, lea and perrins, molasses, hot sauce, tomatoe, catsup, etc. etc.. Now, (shades of Sandra Lee) I do it the simple way!! I did spare ribs
yesterday and the sauce I used was about 1/3 part KC Masterpiece (Mesquite) for the liquid smoke taste and 2/3 parts Sioux-Z-Wow (see below) for the heat and sweetness. Came out pretty good.
I find myself mixing commercial sauces these days. I guess part of it (or it may have started this way) was as a way to clean up a refer jammed up with a bunch of half full BBQ Sauce bottles.
Anyway that's the way I've been doing it recently. Now, I buy particular brands with the intent of combining them for my own 'secret' sauce. Hey, it's so secret that even I don't know what's in it!! ;-)
So how do you guy's make BBQ sauce these days?

I don't have any economic interest in this outfit (except I spent a lot of money on their product) it's just good.
Let me know.
