BBQ Sauce - buy or make

Tried Big Bob Gibson's red BBQ sauce. It was good, although a little sweet for our tastes. Do most Egger's make their own sauce, or purchase their favorite at the store or local BBQ joint?[p]We have our favorite local sauce that we have been using for 30 years (Powdrell's). If you like spicy, this is a great sauce. Can't see making it when this is so good. Will share some if we get to an Eggtober-fest. If there's a semi-official sauce tester in the forum I could always provide a bottle for comments.

    AbqEgg'r, I've been making my own for over 20 years - it's simple and quick and has a wonderful taste. Check out the link - it is also in the recipe section.[p]

    Look at the link. This might be what you are looking for.

    The link should have read DIY (Do it yourself). Not enough coffee in me yet.

  • Gfw, I like your receipe and keep it on hand all the time now as our "house" BBQ sauce. I do cut the amount of brown sugar down to just 3/4 due to personal tastes. BTW readers, the receipe makes exactly the quantity to fill a standard size catsup squeeze bottle. Good stuff, folks, try it, you'll like it! ^oo^~

    Made JJ's sauce with the first brisket I cooked and really enjoyed it. Thanks!

  • AbqEgg'r,
    One of my favorite recipes so far was James Sauce. I don't see it in the recipe section, but I know he posted it. Search the archives for James Sauce....its a winner. Maybe someone who knows where to find it will chime in.[p]Haven't tried Gfw's, but heard great things.[p]NB

    I like Jim's Jack Sauce. I've only made it with Jim Beam, so my version is Jim's Jim Sauce. :)

    AbqEgg'r,[p]I like to make the sauce. It is fun and I can use the freshest ingredients. There are thousands of sauce recipes available on the web.[p]Of course, the ultimate goal of a sauce is to best please you and yours taste buds. If a bought sauce serves this purpose, then by all means, stick with bought.[p]Spin
