Summer is coming, I can just feel it. We are having more sun than rain in my part of the country. The days are getting longer. I have already tried out my grill once this spring so now I'm ready to dig out my grilling recipes and feel the heat. This is my best BBQ sauce recipe. I have used this sauce on all types of meat, even wild game and it does wonders for their flavors.
1 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup A1 steak sauce
2 T fresh horseradish [minced]
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T dark molasses
1 cup Ketchup
3 T dry mustard
2 T hot pepper sauce
1 T garlic, finely minced
1 T red wine vinegar
Mix all ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat to a simmer. Let it simmer for about ten minutes, whisking it several times so it wont stick to your pot. Stirring also helps to get all the ingredients in an even mixture allowing the flavors to mingle. After ten minutes let the sauce cool before pouring it into a glass jar. Place a snug fitting lid on the jar as, you will want to shake it up each time before using. It will last a couple weeks in the refrigerator but it never lies that long at my house during grilling season.
Wild West Barbecue Sauce can be used as a dipping sauce for your meat or fresh veggies, also. Keep 2-3 small dishes of it on your table so you and your guest can enjoy it at your next cookout.
If I gave a name brand for an ingredient it's because I think that one works best with this recipe but feel free to experiment with your favorite brands.
Wishing all of you a great grilling season.
