have seen a lot of sauces include tamarind paste as well. could also use some hot sauce if you want more heat at the end.

Sounds like you have a base for a bbq sauce
Well I like the sound of this.  Care to expand on how to do this?  Is this basically just AST's starch deal?

You could do that or do a lot more to it. At it's present state, you probably have a great starter for the sauce to build on. Here is what i'd do:

Strain the remaining liquid into a container (at this point you can let it cool, store in the fridge, and do this later, or keep on cooking), set aside
Butter a decent sized sauce pan
Add Diced Onion, cook until transparent
Add two crushed Garlic cloves and potentially some peppers if you want to add some heat, cook until fragrant
Toss in the liquid, scrape any bits off the bottom of the pan,
Bring to a simmer
add spices to desired flavor (salt, pepper, cheyenne or chili chowder, cumin, maybe some fresh thyme)
add either tomato paste and/or some stewed tomatoes
add molasses and honey
add lemon juice
add yellow mustard or whatever mustard you prefer
add brown sugar
add apple cider vinegar

Simmer until satisfied with consistency, or until integrated, then adjusting consistency with the slur AST talked about earlier. strain and use. As always, taste as you go and adjust accordingly.

The fact that you used Dr. Pepper may be sweet enough and you could probably do without some of the sugary components, but that should be a decent sauce.







this is very good bbq sauce making advice.

Cooked it in the crock on low for 10 hours.  Took it out, pulled it, sauced it, drained the liquid and put it back in the crock on low for another hour.

Doing another Turkey this weekend, last one was excellent with a butter/garlic injection, over mixed Pecan/Persimmon/Oak

That's an eclectic mix of wood.  Any reason for that?

 :dunno: , was delicious, but will not use Oak next time.

Buying a duck tonight.  Going to smoke it and a brisket this weekend.  Intrigued about the duck.  Going to research a little on how to do that right.

It was chips of Oak Whiskey Barrels and I am thinking they were the culprit for a little too much smoke bite on the skin, but otherwise very tender and juicy.

Guys, I don't even know where to start w it.  Gonna do some research on Smoking Meat Forums this week, so we'll see.  I don't think I should brine it since duck is a fatty meat and shouldnt have any problem staying juicy, but I just don't know.  I may buy two and do a standard poultry rub on one and maybe try something sweet and spicy on the other?  Who knows.

Grilled some chicken, sweet tater slices, zucchini, and yellow squash. Was pretty darn good. Felt even better to be grilling in shorts n tshirt with beer in hand.

Probably nowhere close to where that duck will end up.
