This enticing black-as-night barbecue sauce with a mysterious hot sweet zing makes chicken, beef and pork beg for more. Changes to the basic recipe quickly give it a Southern or Asian kick.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup beer
  • 34 cup thick soy sauce (such as ABC Sweet Soy Sauce)
  • 14 cup red hot pepper sauce (more or less to taste)


  1. Brown meat of choice till caramellized areas appear.
  2. Remove meat from pan and deglaze with beer, scraping up browned bits.
  3. Stir in hot sauce and thick soy sauce (which looks like molasses and tastes like heaven). Water may be added if sauce appears too thick. A small taste will tell you whether the hot/sweet balance is right for you. Once this cooks down it will be thicker and hotter.
  4. Pour over meat. Place roasting pan in 350 degree oven till meat is done and sauce is thick and luscious.
  5. CAUTION! This sauce could be too extreme for children!
  6. Variations:.
  7. Add fresh ginger and 5 Spice powder for an Asian kick, especially good on spare ribs and chicken wings.
  8. Add honey and lemon juice for a sweeter, brighter taste. Great on pork loin or pork chops.
  9. Add ketchup, mustard, worchesterchire for a more traditional tomato based barbecue sauce. Good on anything.
  10. Add caramellized onions and/or roasted garlic for a textural and flavor boost. Really nice for boneless chicken breasts.
