I've made a few sauces of my own and I'm trying to convince my wife to leave the Sweet Baby Ray's in the refrigerator or better yet leave it on the shelf at the store.

Does anyone have a sweet and smokey sauce recipe that they care to share?

Thanks in advance!

Best of the West Barbecue Sauce

1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups white onion, diced
1 1/2 cups catsup
1 1/2 cups bottled water
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/3 cup Mexican lime juice
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
3 teaspoons prepared mustard
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried sweet basil
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup pancake syrup

Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Simmer slowly at least 2 hours uncovered. Sauce will become bitter if cooked with a lid.

Makes about 4 cups

Cowtown. My wife loves Blues Hog Original but it is too sweet and not smoky enough for me.

i also love a sweet/smokey sauce. whether you're making your own or just looking to doctor up an already sweet sauce, go with a little ground chipotle -- this is assuming you want a little heat to go with it :thumb:
