Prep with barbecue sauce

Everybody loves barbecue, and it’s easy to serve grilled meat with the same ol’ same ol’ bottled barbecue sauce. But if you want to wow your guests at your next ‘cue, do what the pitmasters do and stir up your own barbecue sauce.

It has a lot of ingredients but is super easy to prepare and truly delicious. Brush on pork shoulder, chicken thighs or a rack of ribs.

3 garlic cloves, crushed and minced
3/4 cup cider vinegar
1 small can tomato paste
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup golden corn syrup
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp orange marmalade
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp celery seed
1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
1 tbsp liquid smoke

In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients except liquid smoke. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer uncovered, 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in liquid smoke.
