one other thing, I know here in Texas some prefer a tangy, peppery sauce, (like me) and then you you have the other side that wants either no sauce or au jus style. In your case where they are asking for sauce, I would go with bold and peppery

Our local smoke house Sugarfire, makes a coffee BBQ sauce. It's still sweet, but not sugary molasses sweet. And the coffee pairs well with brisket.

John Henry's Slippery Hill sauce goes well with brisket. It is not in the least bit sweet.

Google Walter Jetton's sauce. He was LBJ's pit master back in the day. It is a good basic Texas sauce and is probably perfectly along the lines of what you are looking for. I like to thin it with beef broth and add black pepper. Lots of it. Add sugar or honey as needed if you like

Franklin's BBQ sauce is good with brisket, if you are a sauce person with beef.

Espresso BBQ Sauce
16 servings; makes a generous 2 cups

  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons freshly brewed espresso
  • 1-2 Tbs. brisket drippings, for flavoring, or Au Jus
Combine the ketchup, both vinegars, the dark soy sauce, garlic and onion powders and brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, to form a sauce that's relatively thick and almost plum-colored. Remove the sauce from the heat and stir in the espresso. If using, add the brisket drippings (about a tablespoon, or to taste). Let cool before serving or storing.

I did it for ya!

Walter Jetton's Barbecue Sauce

Serves: 1 people

Recipe Ingredients
1 cup 237ml Tomato ketchup
1/2 cup 118ml Cider vinegar
1 teaspoon 5ml Sugar
1 teaspoon 5ml Chili powder
1/8 teaspoon 0.6ml Salt
1 1/2 cups 355ml Water
3 Celery - chopped
3 Bay leaves
1 Garlic
2 tablespoons 30ml Chopped onion
4 tablespoons 60ml Butter
4 tablespoons 60ml Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon 5ml Paprika
1 Black pepper
Recipe Instructions
Combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil. Simmer about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and strain.

(note - the celery pieces that you strain out from the sauce are among the most delicious things I have ever tasted - really wonderful. In fact, I sometimes made the sauce just to have some of the yummy celery. - Bruce)

NOTES : This is the secret of the ages I am giving you here, and I would not be surprised if wars have been fought over less. Use this as a plate or table sauce with beef, chicken, pork or almost anything else. Don't cook things in it.

Just buy some junk from the store. I would not go out of my way to please people who are worrying about the BBQ sauce. Stay away from sweet. I don't think it goes well.

I like that new Heinze Pitmaster Texas sauce. It's basic and sightly peppery. Never tried the others.
