    My name is Excel and I'm from the ATL! I started grilling last spring, and got into smoking in the summer. The growth and progression in my skill set has been nothing short of amazing!

    When we have family gatherings I now have grill duty! Lol! I've smoked turkeys, chickens, ribs, pork roasts, etc.

    I've even screwed up a Brisket! Lol (Heavy Mesquite smoked shoe leather!) Still have to figure that out! *whistles*

    I want to learn more about making my own sauces, rubs, and brines. I've been doctoring up commercial sauces with good results, but there's nothing like making your own!

    I enjoy reading, traveling, fishing, hunting, fine cigars, and Whiskey!

      Here is Old School's basic sauce, he has used for generations.

    Stan's Texas Table Sauce

    64oz. -cheap ketchup

    2 cups - firmly packed Brown sugar

    1 cup - melted Butter (real)

    1/4 cup -Liquid Smoke (don't laugh or turn your nose up-yet)

    2tbls. -Worchestershire Sauce

    1/4 cup -Fresh Lemon

    Slowly melt Butter , Sugar ,Smoke , Worchestershire and Lemon Juice in a pan that will hold a gal.

    When liquids are blended, add Ketchup and mix well...best served ay room temp.

    Enjoy and tell me what you think...

    He is excellent, with a ton of skills.  It is a basic starting point, and then you could go wild!!!

    There is also Tulsa Jeff's recipes.  Also, tons of ideas in the search mechanism at the top of the forum page.

    Either way, good luck to you!!!

    Good luck
