    I"m looking for a sweet sauce recipe, without a lot of heat. I've searched the forum, but the results for "sweet sauce" are overwelming. Anyone have a good recipe their willing to share?

    I doctor up some Sweet Baby Rays and everybody I have fed it to loves it:

    1 part Sweet Baby Rays

    1/2 part cider vinegar

    1/2 part apple juice

    molasses to taste

    Once it is heated up a bit taste it and then adjust the molasses and vinegar to your liking. It is a thin sweet and tangy sauce, but has wonderful depth from the molasses.

    Here is one we stole from "America's Test Kitchen".  My other half likes it, I don't?  But :


    1 Onion, minced & sweated        ½ C Catsup
    4 C Chix Broth                           ½ C Tomato Paste
    ½ C Molasses                            1 TBS? Hot Sauce
    1 C Dark Corn Syrup                  1 tsp? Garlic Powder
    1 C Apple Cider Vinegar             1 C Root Beer
    2 TBS Brown Mustard

    Simmer 1 to 1 ½  hour

    The question marks are places I would make changes, but then it wouldn't be so sweet any more?

    And another sweet sauce recipe from another source, not tested by me:

    Kansas City-Style Barbecue Sauce, makes 3 cups
    2 cups ketchup
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    1/2 onion, finely sliced from root to tip (see Notes)
    8 tbsp brown sugar
    2 tbsp white sugar
    1 1/2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 tbsp ground mustard

    Good luck and good smoking.
