Need some more guidance on bbq sauce making

Postby Copasspupil » Mon Nov 09, 2020 10:49 am

So I spoke to Norway Joe about his thoughts of using lingonberry in a bbq sauce for Thanksgiving. Besides the real bird being cooked by my wife. I was planning on brining and ultimately smoking a Turkey breast. Applying the bbq sauce for it. I’m thinking about a sweet heat sauce. Either some hatch chili or jalapeños. Any thoughts on this idea?

Yes Joe I did but it doesn’t call for any heat. I figured with a number of experience people here someone can come to shed some more light is all.

How about a Plum BBQ sauce ?
Simple to make. Can be spiced up as hot as you like...

Homemade Plum BBQ Sauce

Ingredients:
1 cup Plums (pitted and chopped) 2-3 plum s depending upon the size
1/3 cup Catsup
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
2 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce or Soy Sauce
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes

Instructions:
There is no need to peel the plums.
Add all of the ingredients to your blender or food processor.
Process until smooth.
I f reducing on the grill, pour into a small cast iron skillet and reduce the sauce.
You'll need to stir it frequently so it doesn't burn.
If reducing on stove, place in a small sauce pan over medium heat, reduce, stirring frequently.
This takes about 10 minutes, either on the grill or stove top.

Looks like a good generic sauce recipe. Substitute your berries for the plums. As far as heat might just bump up the red pepper flakes or the jalapeños you mentioned. Wouldn’t go with the Hatch myself. Too many better uses IMO.
I would also strain before reducing. Again just my opinion.

Would think chipotle. Not as bitter as jalapeño, more potent than hatch Chile but still mellow and smokey.

Thanks boots.

I’ll try and work with it on the weekend and see how it turns out. Appreciate everyone’s input on it.

Decided on a cranberry orange bbq sauce. I could t get to ikea to get the lingonberry. It’s a definitely started out more raspberry color looking then true red. The more it cooks down to thicken the darker it getting.
I used:
1 1-2 cups of fresh cranberries
1/2 diced onion
1 tablespoon of brown mustard
1/2 cup of catsup
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon of chili sauce
1 teaspoon of sriracha
1 teaspoon of red pepper flake
1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon of butter

On to the rub now.

Skin or no skin?!?
