well now that i really have the smoking bug im starting to get the urge to try my hand at my own sauce. i really like a slightly tangy sauce. ive been using stubbs sauce lately and really like it. my questions is to make a sauce tangy would you use more vinegar? im just trying to figure out what ingredient gives it that great taste. also if i decide not to use ketchup what all would i need to add to my tomato sauce as far as seasonings go if anything at all. from my reading the big thing that the ketchup has is the sugar so if i just use tomato sauce with a bit of my brown sugar i should be ok right? hopefully this thread makes sense....this is a totally new endeavor for me.
