    I am pleased to announce I made my first sauce Friday night.  I have been told to keep it sealed and let it set for a week before opening it which works out nice because I plan on doing a brisket next weekend. 

    I used the following:

    Corn Syrup


    Apple Cider Vinegar

    Tomato Sauce

    Worcestershire Sauce

    Mustard (powder)

    Garlic Powder



    Black Pepper

    Red Pepper

    Chile Powder

    Pureed Vidalia onion

    Pureed Habanero pepper

    Pureed Jalapeno Pepper

    I think that is it.  I mixed it all up and boiled and reduced it.  I got about half a gallon.  It smells and taste great but I cannot wait until it has set for a week!

    Sounds great!  Looking forward to hearing the final assessment in about a week.

    I started making my own sauces as a teen cooking CSR's & beef ribs.  Sometimes I even stewed them in the homemade sauces.  Good times & good memories (not to mention great food)!  Use to make it all by the seat of my pants without recipes or notes -- so it was hard to duplicate the results, but no one ever complained.  [​IMG]   Now I am a little more methodical.

    I forgot to say I also put in some cumin and brown sugar!  I found a basic recipe and then got a little crafty with it.  The good thing is I measured and wrote everything down so I can do it again or add or remove certain things as well.

    I can't wait either!

    The sauce was damn good!  I am very impressed with myself on this one.  It could be a little thicker but all in all real good.  It has a good spice to it with a little heat(my kids eat it)  and then it has a great smokey sweet side as well. 

    $5.00 a bottle boys!
