it’s all about the sauce

I am a huge fan of Bone Suckin' Sauce.  I started ordering their products online back in 1998.  At that point I had to download their order form and then fax it over to them.  Not exactly a seamless online transaction but the beginnings of their growth into the online world.  I had the pleasure of meeting the man behind Bone Suckin' Sauce a few years back.  Third generation.  His Grandfather started the business as a fruit and vegetable delivery business in the South.  It has now grown into quite the business with a variety of different products but at the end of the day Bone Suckin' Sauce is my favorite. 

Josh was looking for an Asian slant on the BBQ sauce this weekend so I opted for making one.  BBQ sauce is one of the easier things to make but again it is always easier to just pick up a bottle from the store.  This sauce was well worth spending the fifteen minutes to make.  A bit of a kick with a slight Asian tasting slant. 
This recipe below makes plenty for a few BBQ's. 

3 cups of yellow onions chopped

1 cup tomato paste

1/2 cup ketchup

2 cups cider vinegar

2 cups honey

1 cup Worchestershire sauce

1 cup soy sauce

2 cups hoisin

3 T. chili powder

2 T. ground cumin

1 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes

In a large pot cover the bottom with olive oil.  When the oil heats, saute the onions until soft.  Add the chili powder, cumin and red pepper flakes.  Continue to saute until the onions are thoroughly coated.  Add the rest of the ingredients.  Bring to boil and then down to simmer for about 15 minutes.  This sauce gets thicker but not that thick.  When it cools, put it in the refrigerator.  Should stay for at least a week. 

Perfect for mopping over anything you have on the grill.

    Ha! The exact sauce I use for my much-in-demand 4th of July BBQ ribs.I’ve tried a bunch of sauces, and while there are a few that are better, they can be hard to find… especially in volume like the Bone Suckin’ Sauce.

      The huge bottle is the key to every pantry!
