Smoked BBQ Sauce

Has anyone tried to smoke a BBQ sauce before?  If so what would be the best way to do it?
I'd prefer to use the Egg and not add liquid smoke.

    Would go with a cold smoke generator- 

    I haven’t heard of anyone trying this but have heard of people smoking Water for ice cubes.

    Are you talking homemade bbq sauce or store bought? 

    I make homemade bbq sauce on the stove and I see no reason why you couldn't add some smoke on the egg while the sauce reduces and thickens.

    Haven't tried, but i tend to think of bbq sauce as something to cut through the smoke and fat, not add to it.

  • Yes a homemade BBQ sauce.  I've have a couple of sauces that I bought that were smoky.  I would like to attempt my own version.

    Go for it. I'd stick with a sweet smoke wood when first starting out and see what that gets you.

    I smoke mine with whatever I am smoking at the time. I have a wide SS BBQ cup, leaving the cover off. Just add some extra fluid to your sauce for evaporation and when it gets to the right thickness, pull it or add more fluid.I use beer in mine for the thinning fluid. I also add a couple pats of margarine so it sticks to the meat better. Keep your temp low and slow and you should have no problems.

    use some slow smoked jalepinos or just add some chipotles in adobo sauce or make the chipotles in adobo sauce and add some to the bbq sauce. now you have smoked bbq sauce and chipotle in adobo

    If I wanted to add more smoke to a sauce, I would add liquid smoke. I occasionally use and recommend Wright brand liquid smoke. Used cautiously in limited amounts, it can be used to add a little smoke flavor without being overpowering. 
    This is not the answer you were seeking, but it has a distinct advantage of being repeatable. Add the same amount each time to the recipe and you will achieve the same flavor profile.
