I got this recipe from my friend Jeff years ago-this is the original recipe for the fantastic sauce on the ribs at the Famous Montgomery Inn Resaurant, Cincinnati OH., Jeff used to use 1/2 of the chili powder and add 2 t. red pepper, for his own personal taste.
- 5 cups catsup
- 1 cup tarragon vinegar
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar
- 5 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
- 7 1⁄2 teaspoons chili powder
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons red peppers
- 16 garlic cloves
- 7 medium onions
- 1⁄2 cup water
- Combine in saucepan, bring to a boil.
- Simmer for 1 hour-Strain.
I live in Cincinnati currently and I buy the bottled montgomery inn sauce regularly for shredded bbq chicken sandwiches. I was making the chicken last night and didn't realize until last minute I was out of my favorite sauce! Luckily I found this recipe for the copycat which saved the day. My husband said it was the best BBQ chicken I'd ever made and I will keep this recipe, it was great and I believe the original poster when he says this is the actual recipe. I didn't have the terragon vinegar, so instead I used 1 c. apple cider vinegar with 1 tsp dry terragon.
I grew up 2 miles from Montgomery Inn and have been eating their ribs for over 30 years. This recipe is very very close. Now in Minn., I am very glad to have it. Do not forget to heat it before using.
This BBQ sauce is totally awesome on ribs! I kept brushing it on during grilling and the ribs rocked! Thank you!
