How-To: Make your own BBQ sauce

How-To: Make your own BBQ sauce


It’s Friday and I’m feeling a strong barbecue urge. Luckily dmlandrum on Instructables made a tutorial for making your own BBQ sauce, which I’m sure will come in handy. There’s also a nice DIY ketchup how-to for ensuring that your sauce is 100% homemade.

    You can get the sauce and it’s marvelous in it’s simplicity yet no other sauce can match it. You can get the commercialized sauce at local stores. It’s not the same as braving the ghetto to buy some ribs at a place that looks like it belongs in Lebanon.

    Zebs is out of business
    His kids saw dollar signs when he died and sold off all the prime locations for several million. They did NOT offer his original mambo sauce for sale. Stupid kids.

    Is that old fart still alive? I love his ribs and despise his sauce. If you order his ribs with the sauce on the side you get twice the sauce on the ribs. :)

    Of the three love Ma and Pa’s. I only got their ribs four times with this sauce and it’s heaven. Zebs is 2nd and Purnells third.

    Oh King Ribs in Indianapolis does a fantastic job on chicken. I’m not partial to their ribs or sauce but get their chicken it’s marvelous.

    Huh, ‘soul food’ is normal. I was raised on it. It means ‘poor peopel food’ or ‘what the rich folk won’t buy”.
