How to make it

  • Mix the Vinegars & ground Spices together in a saucepan over medium heat. Reduce by 1/2.
  • Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium high heat, lightly saute' Onion & Garlic until soft. Add the Brown Sugar & Molasses. Reduce slightly until thick and bubbly.
  • Add the Vinegar mixture, Chipotles, Ketchup and Worscestershire Sauce.
  • Cook slowly over low heat for about 1 hour. Salt to taste.
  • Strain through a medium mesh sieve pressing out the juices from the Onions and Garlic.
  • At this point you can either can it or keep it several weeks in the refrigerator in an air tight container.
  • Tip: Do not cook with this sauce over high heat. It will carmelize and burn. Instead, marinate the food overnight in the sauce first, then grill or smoke it slowly and finish with the sauce during the last 15 - 20 Minutes of cooking to form a nice glaze.

    Checking back, Jim sweetie - to say I made your barbecue sauce (using your chipotles in adobo) last night - and WOW! Oh WOW! I cannot tell you how delicious and delightful I found this sauce. It's absolutely loaded with flavor - but as you already said, it has such a roundness and complexity, which I love.

    I think I ate about a half cup of it while cooking it down - ha! And I used it to marinate some pork chops all day - grilled them off tonight and then at the last, I doused them again and caramelized the chops up. Totally killer, Jim baby - totally. Killer... ;-)~~

    This sauce would make a super star of any meat. Pork butt comes next. Bravo - you rock, as always, m'dear! ~Vickie

    P.S. Adding a pic of the finished sauce. Thanks again!

    Great book, and this is the best bbq sauce. I only add some other chillis to make it hotter. His mango habanero is awesome too.

    I agree with you 100 percent when it comes to a smoky flavor you have to either roast the chillies like I do in my recipe or use smoked chipotle peppers and or Chipottle chili pepper powder.
    I love this it has enough heat and sweet to round out the flavors like you said.

    Good point Cabin, lol Ok.. how about this, Line up all 37 sized bottles on your counter. Pick the one in the middle. Then pick the one half way between the one you just picked and the smallest. There, now you have enough Ketchup...

    Sound great ... I'm printing it ... but there's something you should know. Ketchup comes in thirty seven different sized bottles now-a-days.
