Smokey Maple Whiskey Barbeque Sauce

Smokey Maple Whiskey Barbeque Sauce

Well it's FINALLY arrived...barbecue season is here! So to kick off this joyous occasion I thought I'd share my families’ fave barbecue sauce recipe. It's bold, rich and smokey with a slightly sweet sticky tang. Fantastic on chicken and ribs, even better mixed into hamburger meat before you form your patties...simply finger licking good.

3                     large cans of crushed tomatoes(pureed)

3c                   ketchup

8                    cloves of garlic (crushed)

1c                   vinegar

1c                   soy sauce                                       

4tbsp            Worcester sauce

1/4c               molasses

2tbsp            liquid smoke

2 1/2c            brown sugar

1tbsp             smoked paprika

1tbsp             chili powder

 3tbs             Dijon mustard

3tbsp            prepared mustard

1                    small onion (grated)

 1/2c              whiskey

1/2c               real maple syrup

Makes about 7 cups of sauce.

Toss it all in a large pot and simmer for a few hours. You can also make this in a crock pot on low if you have one, just toss everything in and forget about it until the next morning.

Tip- I sometimes double this recipe, it keeps in the fridge for a very long time.
