Food, Wine & Just Good Living With SaucyJoe

It started with a love of food, wine & fun and blossomed into a maddening pursuit of the best recipes, techniques, grills, smokers, wines, crafted beers, rubs, marinades and sauces... We do more than play with our meat though -- we review and discuss all things cooking, drinking, reading, laughing and living at SaucyJoe's.

This was a bigger hit!

I made my Texas Style Barbecue Sauce a couple of days before the event just to let the flavors mingle. It was getting hotter as it mingled, so I pulled out a backup sauce that was a little cooler on the taste buds. It was a hit! This is an easy sauce to make and it has so many possibilities. Just take a look at the ingredients and you'll agree!!

2 Cups of your favorite bottled barbecue sauce

1 Cup of your favorite salsa

1/4 Cup Cider Vinegar

Coarse Salt

Freshly Ground Black Pepper

Combine barbecue sauce, salsa and vinegar in a nonreactive sauce pan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Let cook until thick and flavorful. 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. You can serve it hot, as we do, or it can be refrigerated for up to 48 hours. Just bring it back to room temperature before serving.
