Barbecue Sauces

We hear that the secret for a great barbecue is in the sauce. What is a barbecue chicken, a rack of barbecue ribs or a t-bone steak without an accompaining sauce? We’re sure this can spark a debate among different schools of thought about the need for sauce, but our own personal experience has lead us to believe that the secret is definitely in the sauce. We live in the south where barbecue rules and is a way of life. We enjoy all types of barbecue and have come to the conclusion that anybody can do it. We think the reason people like certain barbecue joints over another is the sauce. Meat is Meat and the sauce can make or break a Good Barbecue.

Let me share with you four simple barbecue sauce recipes and you will be the judge!

Simple Pork Barbecue Sauce

2/3 c. catsup
1/3 c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. Worcestershire
Hot sauce to taste
Rosemary (crumbled) to taste

Mix all ingredients together. A good brand of hot sauce for flavor is Louisiana hot sauce. Brush on pork spare ribs, steaks, or chops while barbequeing or baking.

Honey Tomato Barbecue Sauce

1 pkg. taco seasoning
1/2 c. tomato sauce
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1-2 tbsp. soy sauce
1/8 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 sm. onion, diced

Saute onions in butter until soft, about 5 minutes. Add all other ingredients and simmer another 5 minutes. Adds a little “zing” to your chicken or meat on the grill.

Easy Barbecue Sauce

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
3 tbsp. vinegar
1/4 c. catsup
1/8 tsp. pepper
4 tbsp. sugar
1/4 c. chopped onion

Mix together and cook over low heat 5 minutes. Easily doubled.

1/2 tsp. pepper
Dash of cayenne

1/3 c. butter

Heat all ingredients, stirring frequently until butter is melted.

Youl be the judge. Pick the one that best suits your barbecue venture and enjoy!

Why is Barbequing So Popular?


Barbequing is an American tradition. Each year, statistics show that at least 90% of families attend at least one barbeque party or celebration. About 40% of families delight in throwing parties that center around the idea of barbequing. With statistics like that, one must wonder why barbequing is such a popular event and tradition.

First, barbequing or grilling allows you to create a meal that is unmatched by any other type of cooking. The grilled smell and taste will perk up even the pickiest meat eater.

A variety of meats and side dishes are used when barbequing. Traditionally, families cook pork, beef, and fish on their grills. When visiting your local grocery store, look for meats that are specifically cut and packaged for barbequing. If you do not find pre packaged meats, then chances are spices, marinates, and kits for grilling are somewhere near by.

Traditional side dishes include potato salad, beans, and coleslaw. These sides work well with the variety of meats available and are easy to prepare and store until it is time to eat.

Your traditional condiment bar should include pickles, relish, and onions.

Different types of grills will present different types of flavors. Charcoal and smoker grills present a natural “smoked” flavor which is one of the most known tastes of barbequing. Smokers even allow you to control slight changes in the favor of the meat by using different types of woods. Alternatively, propane grills allow grillers to cook their meals faster, but still have a grilled flavor.
