    I thought I would share my BBQ sauce recipe: This is a mix between Kansas and Texas. Its a little thinner than KC and has a lot more heat.
    • 2 tbs butter ( I prefer Irish Butter)
    • 1 small onion (I use white ,but have tried yellow with good results)
    • 2 cloves garlic diced (1tsp garlic powder for less of a garlic taste)
    • 2 cups Ketchup
    • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1/4 cup apple juice
    • 1/4 cup Apple Pie Moonshine
      • (store brand is apple pie shine is fine if you can not get the real stuff)
    • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
    • 2 tablespoons black strap molasses
    • 2 table spoons honey
    • 2 table spoons brown sugar
    • 2 Teaspoons mustard powder
    • 1 teaspoon Chipotle Chili Powder
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne
      • (I usually go to 1/4 tsp because I am feeding kids too. 1 tsp with the Chipotle will wake you up)
    Melt the butter in sauce pan and cook onions and garlic until soft. Mix in the wet ingredients and heat for 2-3 minute then mix in dry ingredients. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 30 minutes. Use an immersion blender or regular blender to smooth out the onion and garlic.

    *** it dawned on me that some of you may not be able to get moonshine, if you cant get apple pie moonshine, I have made this recipe with Jack's Tennessee Honey, Jameson, and beer all were very tasty alternatives and provided their own unique flavor profiles***
