Hey Journey Fans!!
As tomorrow is the 4th of July, and I’m sure many of you will be spending time with family and friends outdoors grilling some awesome meats and veggies, and I thought it was time to post my own BBQ Sauce!! I’ve played around with a few different ones from some of my friends over the past few months, and the time has come for me to create and post my own. This came out Awesome!! It has a nice Hickory flavor, and a great bite with the Chipotle Pepper. I will be using this quite often for Ribs, Pulled Pork, Burgers and BBQ Beef.
Big Tim’s Chipotle Hickory BBQ Sauce
3 cups Organic (or homemade) Beef stock.
2 cans 6oz each Organic Tomato Paste
1 Sweet Brown Onion
2 Tbsp Minced Garlic or 3-4 cloves chopped fine
2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
4 Tbsp Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
3 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 Tbsp Chili Powder
2 Tbsp Raw Honey
2 Tsp Sea Salt
2 Tsp Black Pepper
2 Tsp Chipotle Pepper
2-3 Tbsp Liquid Smoke
Take your Onion and Garlic, and throw it in your food processor/blender/Ninja/Vitamix whatever you have, and process it super fine. When you reach your desired consistency add to stock pot. Turn on heat and brown onion and garlic for 3-5 minutes to release the flavors.
Add all remaining ingredients to the stock pot, and stir till all incorporated. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to very low, and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
After one hour, taste, and adjust accordingly. If you want it thinner, add some more beef stock and simmer 15 min longer, may need extra salt, or liquid smoke, or more pepper. Let cool, and jar it up for later use. Store in refrigerator.
Have a safe and fun Holiday!
