bbq sauce help

Discussion in 'Sauces, Rubs & Marinades' started by beerwagon, May 2, 2014.

  1. I'm starting to experiment with sauces. Ive made one a year ago from mixons everyday BBQ that was awful. However I'm working on a homemade sauce with applebutter for a contest towards end of summer. Two things I'm working on figuring out.

    Ketchup vs plain tomato sauce... I used ketchup and I really don't like the thought haha. Plus I can still taste the tang from it.

    Always comes out a red hue.... what can I do to turn it brown? I like the look of jack Daniel sauce and id like to see the color in it.

    What really could I add to take away ketchup tang or steer away from such a heavy tomato base?

    Thanks in advance for any help!
