There is still half a day left to whip up and entry for the Sauce is Boss Throwdown. There are only three entries, so far. :shock:

I decided to look back upon my roots for my boss sauce.

Friday, I prepared my mise en place of San Marzano tomatoes, onions, bell peppers, garlic, mushrooms and some basil and oregano fresh from the still growing garden.

I sautéed the onions peppers and garlic in olive oil. I tossed the shrooms and herbs in with them briefly, then added the tomatoes, mashed up with a whisk. I added a little k-salt and fresh ground black pepper, and let it simmer for about four hours. Then I cooled it and put it in the fridge overnight to really merge the flavors.

Saturday, I ground up some chuck and pork loin with the Kitchenaid, then mixed up some meatballs with the meat, two eggs, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, and diced onion.

On to the 18.5 OTG, set up indirect with Kingsford Blue and a couple oak chunks, also from my backyard (some of last spring's pruning).

I made some pasta, mixed it up in my saucier of simmering sauce (the right way to sauce), and plated my meal.

It isn't BBQ, but it was wonderful.

Those meatballs make me hungry!

Looks fantastic! San Marzano are the only way i roll for canned tomatoes. Only thing you are missing is some freshly grated parm :thumb:

Fark, and I'm out of town. Sorry CD, I had a few good ideas for that TD too, but can't seem to recall what they were. Anyway, those meatballs look great. I love meatballs.
