¼ cup your favorite rub (I use Sweet and Spicy)

10 oz. Apple Butter
1 cup Apple Cider
2 cup Apple Juice
1 cup Honey
¼ Garlic Powder
1/ 4 cup Onion Powder
1/8 cup Oregano
½ cup Yellow Mustard
1/8 cup red pepper flakes
Bring to a boil and let sit in the pot for about 12 hours or until cool before storing.
This is a good base sauce and you can doctor it easily (I always do based on my mood) with brown sugar for more of a sweetner; cayenne for heat; red food color or caramel food color for more of a mahogony thing. If you need more smoke flavor use cumin not liquid choke, I mean liquid smoke.
For when it comes time to gather ingredients, is the thyme & oregano fresh or dried? Thanks again for the recipe!
