More BBQ - Anyone have a good EZ homemade BBQ sauce recipe

I've been using Baby Ray's, but I was imagining putting sauce on the meat in my mind and I had a flash: Homemade has got to be better than that goopy chemical tasting crap. I mixed up a little from a recipe on the net that's long gone, but I winged it and it wasn't bad. A little too spicy but way better than Baby Ray or KC. So, I'm hoping I can come up with something (or maybe several) before Sunday. I has some BBQ afficianadoes coming for lunch and I hasn't cooked a lot of BBQ. They are from Little Rock and used to Memphis style. They eat at the Whole Hog Cafe where they have 6 types of sauce. I may try that once I get the ingredients bought and out on the counter.

One problem I have is I had diabetes and even tasting the samples gets my sugar up. I just ran into that awhile ago. But it was refreshing to have something that is not full of goopy corn syrup. Even the ketchup didn't have corn syrup.

.....sure other will chime in but basic BBQ sauce is:

ketchup, mustard and honey (or brown sugar or any sugary product like molasses, agave, maple syrup, etc.)
add salt if you'd like
jazz it up with garlic powder, cayenne, tabasco other spices or Worcestershire sauce

some also add vinegar based like apple cider vinegar, or balsamic, etc......

I was in the same boat, never having made ribs, not having a grill and wondering how to enjoy my own baby back ribs at home.

Some time ago, the super market "Fresh" which had opened a store near us, decided that the west coast was too far for their distribution system. They closed their doors with a final sale.

It was there that I bought a gallon of the same bbq sauce that they were using on their own ribs. Delicious!

It's called Wing It. Here's a link to the oven cooked rib recipe on their website: [wingit.com]

It's really easy, no clean up because everything is contained in aluminum foil and the result is wonderful.

The amount of cooking time seemed to be way to long, but I did confirm it with the company owner. YMMV. He's very available. The sauce is wonderful without having to do any work. I found it for sale locally at Ralph's market, which is part of the Kroger chain.

Give it a try. I guarantee that you will love it.

BTW, I didn't mention that I have used this recipe myself, a number of times and was thrilled with the results.

At first, I thought that the cooking time seemed too long, so I used a quick reading thermometer to check the doneness and the result was great. I double checked with the WingIt owner and he said to cook it the full amount of time and that the meat would be perfect and falling off the bone. I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but I definitely will test his claim.

Add a little bit of fish sauce or some anchovies.

Western North Carolina - Vinegar based, no ketchup - for pulled pork
Eastern North Carolina - Vinegar and Ketchup based - for chopped pork
South Carolina - Mustard base - for pork
Alabama - white sauce - for chicken
Memphis - dry rub - for ribs
Kansas City - sweet tomato base - for ribs
Texas Sweet - tomato base - for beef brisket
South Florida - Mojo - citrus juice based - for Cuban pig roast

We all eat BBQ in Memphis and Little Rock. Certainly not any of the Carolinas or the white Alabama. So, probably closest to KC. Does anyone know if there are any published comparisons of BBQ to music equalization? (hare-brained idea.)

I'm horrible when it comes to recipes for sauces or chili, as I just throw in what I have on hand at the moment. If it's great, it's a one time affair, as I can never recreate it.

But when I picked up some Weber sauce from the food aisle on quick notice I was actually fairly impressed. Better than Baby Ray's, imo.

I've made a couple batches just growing stuff together from various recipes. They have their faults, but they are way ahead of Baby Ray and KC.

My Great-uncle Joe had the famous Hickory Smoked Bar-B-Q joint in Wilton (near Ashdown), later run by his daughter Rae. Maybe you've been there. He bought his sauce recipe from some famous place in Little Rock. I was too young to remember the details the one time I watched him mix it up, but it was primarily ketchup and mustard, not all that much sugar added.

I've been through there several times but never eaten there. The was a famous place in Little Rock called the Shack that had a simple recipe, but no mustard.

This is a tasty sauce and fun to make since it has the jalapeño peppers.

....you can probably use sugar substitute for the sugar, for taste, but the sugar also helps to glaze/caramelize.......some sugar substitutes break down with intense heat.....I'm guess Splenda would work since it is most like 'sugar'.....they also make a 'baking' Splenda that is made to withstand the heat.....it is lighter than regular Splenda....

Or there's always Central Texas style: smoke the brisket long enough over the right wood such that using sauce is gilding the lily. I'm always very wary of places praised for their sauce. What deficiency are they hiding?
