Jeff's Sauce

  1. I found the sauce to be kind of dissapointing, does anyone have some modifications/substitutes?

    1. I use honey instead of Molassas.
    2. I take out a little of the heat. My family and friends like it a little sweeter.

    The sauce, as well as the rub, is very user friendly. The basic recipe can be tweaked to suit your personal taste. Give some personal tricks a try. I'm sure you will come up with something.

    Good luck, Joe

    Agree, very easily made into something you like.

    Experiment some.
     
  4. Thanks, I just made a second batch using honey and I added about a tsp. of tamarinde. Amazing sauce, definitely worth the money.

    I have found that Jeff's sauce has to sit a day or two to let the flavors reach their full potential.. IMHO it is great as is.. Like Joe and Al said tweet it alittle and make it yours.

    I have found you can drink it right after making it ...just kidding I love the sauce and have mixed it with Apple , Pineapple juice and my favorite Sweet Red Wine !!!!
     
  8. I use honey and molasses. I add  worcestershire powder. Even before tinkering, family and friends say it's the best they've tasted.

    I found simmering it a little longer helped with the ketchup tast. I add apple juice to thin it so it can cook longer. Also I add some apple cider vinger along with some other spices I like. Like Lemans said time is its friend. I really enjoy the sauce. Went to one of my favorite BBQ joins where I love their sauce and now found I like mine better. Like Al said now it's your sauce. Make it what you like.

    It is very user friendly. With some honey, it makes a great glaze. With apple juice, it becomes a wonderful braise. Jeff's recipe is the basis for many good changes that can result in an awesome taste for anything.
