Dear BBQ Friend:
Here's the BBQ Sauce recipe that I tried out in a few BBQ contests. I wanted something unique because I think the judges are getting tired of the same old thing every weekend. I also wanted to keep the basic theme that the judges "seem"
to like... sweet, tangy, with a little kick. Note: the recipe in the book seems to be the best because it won 8 grands and this one didn't.
Bill's Homemade Competition BBQ Sauce
Directions: mix all ingredients and simmer on low for 1 hour. After about 45 minutes, add in the cornstarch mixture while stirring. Depending on how you like it, run it through a food mill to remove pepper skins
and other solids. You can also use a "boat motor" hand mixer to chop up some of the ingredients before running it through the food mill. You can also use a colander or coarse strainer. Or not strain it at all.
Yield: About a gallon give or take a little.
