"the Frugal Gourmet's" Southern Barbecue Sauce

This is the only barbecue sauce I use for "Pulled Pork" barbecue. From Jeff Smith's first cookbook, "The Frugal Gourmet", 1984 One recipe is enough for about 10 lbs. of meat. It keeps well in a jar in the fridge. If you don't have liquid smoke, try adding some smoked paprika.

    This is our "house" barbeque sauce, loved by all. My secret is to cook in a crock pot without the lid but with a splatter screen on it to let it slowly cook down and thicken. I make gallons and store in the fridge.

    I have made this sauce for many years and absolutely love it. I use ground polish mustard instead of the yellow stuff and sometimes crushed red tomatoes instead of tomato paste when I can grab them out of the garden. The added benefit of this sauce is that it works equally well on chicken and pork. It's also great on meats that have been smoked and smoked and smoked. You get the idea.
