one of my first books by ole steven was the sauce book. Since i got that I've been a total junkie for sauce making. I go down to the liqour store to scout for possible sauce ingredients more often than I go to buy drinkage lately. I am always compelled to buy peppers (usually red fresnos or serranos) when at the store or the farmer's markets. This week, I plan on experimenting with some new ingredients and sending out little cups of sauce with chicken fingers to all of my BBQ tasters (that is, my hungry friends).

And it's all this Steven guys fault!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Orange marmalade and brandy are good in sauces. Give those a try some time.

The thing I've started working with lately has been woodchuck hard cider. Anyone else ever tried that?

I think I've perfected my rub.
Need to perfect my smoking, especially multiple racks.
THEN I'll be brave enough to start making my own sauce.
I'm a KC Masterpiece fan.
Tried Budweiser's Beechwood sauce just for something new yesterday.
I liked it. Anyone else try it before?

I bought some of the Bud Beechwood sauce after touring the brewery last spring. I smoked a couple racks of baby backs and put this sauce on one of them. That rack disappeared lightening fast! Everyone loved it. I thought it was great too!

This book was my 4th purchase of one of Steven's books. My BBQ library just didn't seem complete without it. And yes, I've used hard cider in some of my sauce recipes - it goes great with pork and chicken.

Does the book show you how to make sauces from scratch, or does it just say here or some sauces you can make?

I am looking at makeing my own sauces from scratch. I want to learn the a to z process of good sauces. Have some sauces in the bbq bible, but I do want more.

:D

Welcome aboard!

Yes, "Sauces Rubs and Marinades" does include a section of sauce recipes. While I generally don't make my own sauces I find the book useful for the rubs and marinades.

Welcome to the board, kevinv! :D

Yes, all of Steven's books show you how to make sauces from scratch. Some of these sauces are ketchup-based, but a lot of them are made using tomato sauce instead so they're really from scratch. I've made a few dozen sauces out of Steven's books and they're all excellent.

Incidentally, they all process well too if you're looking to make extra batches of them. I often make a double or triple batch of some of these sauces and then can them for later in the year, and they've all turned out great too.

Hi folks. I make my own sauce because I'm located in Africa and there isn't any sauce for sale here. Sometimes you stumble on a jar or two on the shelf, but it isn't any brand you've ever heard of, it's probably made in Pakistan or Saudi Arabia, and it's expensive. Only Americans BBQ here so anything to do with it is super expensive. Besides, I can make sauce that is better than any out of a jar anyway.
