The Ultimate Southern Living cookbook has three BBQ
The sauce was easy and fast to make and I am not left with a large amount of sauce that will be in the refrigerator forever. If you like a good all around sauce, this will do nicely. Use for chicken, pork or beef. Not too sweet or too vinegary. Good balance of flavors.
Southern BBQ Sauce
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons butter melted
1 cup ketchup
1 cup water
¾ cup chili sauce
¼ cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 ½ teaspoons celery seeds
½ teaspoons salt
2 dashes of hot sauce
Saute garlic in butter 4 to 5 minutes in a saucepan. Add ketchup and remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. If you are going to use it as a dipping sauce, simmer it for a few minutes to bring out the flavor. Use to baste pork or chicken or beef.
