    just getting ready to fire up another batch of this clone, we really like it and it's really close to the real thing if you have ever been to tony roma's


    1 cup ketchup
    1 cup red wine vinegar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup molasses
    1 1/2 teaspoons liquid smoke
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon rounded black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon onion powder

    combine all over high heat, whisk until smooth, bring to boil then reduce heat and simmer uncovered 40 minutes until sauce thickens.....

    makes 1 1/2 cups

    regular table salt, although you could use kosher as well but I never have. the only thing I ever ordered at tony romas was baby backs with the blue ridge smokie sauce..... :)

    Smoked, I made this sauce last night. We put it on some grilled pork steaks! Oh! can I say grilled here? Ha ha!
    They wife and I LOVE the sauce. Has a wonderful flavor. We will add a little hot sauce or cayenne pepper to it just to spice it up a bit!!!
    I simmered it for about 50 minutes on a very low simmer.... I really wanted the sauce to thicken up a bit more.
    Will it thicken more if I keep simmering it? Thanks!

    You might want to try this one as well. It's very similar to the Blue Ridge Smokies but the honey makes it much sweeter. It's pretty good !!!!
