Dr. BBQ, Big Time BBQ Sauce
For Christmas I got the Dr. BBQ, Big Time BBQ book. I wanted the book for a long time and have been a fan of Dr. BBQ. First thing I wanted to try was the Big Time BBQ sauce recipe. I made it exactly as the recipe called for. While I was tasting the sauce, I wasnít real sure if I liked it.

That night we had some burgers on the grill. I had some people try the sauce to get their opinion. Both of them said they did not care for it. One person asked what was in it. Said there was something that tasted odd in it. We went through the ingredients. After smelling the bottle of Thyme we agreed that was it. I found an earlier post that a lot of people did not care for the Thyme. I was disappointed.

I kept using the sauce even though it had the Thyme taste. After a few days I made some pulled pork and baby back ribs. I used the sauce again on the ribs and I could no longer taste the Thyme at all. Same thing when I used it on the pulled pork. It tasted real good! I am no longer disappointed.
I think it just needed some time in the refrigerator for all of the flavors to mix together.

Iím happy with the sauce but, the next time I make it I will probably use half of the amount of Thyme and maybe add a dash cinnamon.
Dr. BBQ, I'm still a big fan.

Unless your baking recipes are only ingredient lists at best I follow them loosely. Eliminate what you don't like and add or adj to your liking.

We all like it a lot just as is; however, I have to fight myself every time to put that liquid smoke in there. (I have to get someone else to go buy it to save my reputation.)

Great book. It's the first book I recommend to anyone showing interest in learning to cook really good barbecue.

Agree with the note about varying the receipe to fit your taste. I rarely stick to measurements, etc.

I always follow a recipe the first time. Tweaking, if needed and it usually is, starts the second time.

Is that the sauce from the Two Fat Larry's Thick and Sticky recipe?

FYI - Ray's most recent book has some more refined sauce recipes.

Recipes are not blueprints, they are suggestions. Use more of what you like and none of what you dont.

I had given up on making my own sauce until my chiropractor (Who I passed my addiction to BBQ on to.) made it, and told me that I had to try it. I've been using it for about 3 years now, and have never had anyone go for the bottle of SBR that I always put out in case some one doesn't like the Dr.'s sauce.

Brian, That was way cool when you got the "Thanks" from the Dr. BBQ himself. :clap2:
