JakeSG Love and the Special Sauce

firefighter jakesg

Our friend jakeSG graciously hosted a grill session back on Independence Day. My veggie pasta salad worked as a great side to his kick-ass charred chicken doused in his special sauce. He finally got around to sending ES the recipe…

jakeSG’s 4th of July BBQ Sauce

All measurements are done with my eye. Works best if made a day or two before, as it is better after sitting in the fridge for a bit.

Cut 1 onion into very small or thin pieces
(Optional: 1/2 jalepeno cut into thin slices)
Put in large pot with a few tablespoons of veggie oil and cook on med flame until onions are clear
Add crushed garlic to taste (about 2 cloves)
Salt + Pepper
Cayenne (to taste)
Switch to low flame, keep stirring to avoid anything sticking to the pot.
Cook uncovered.
Heintz (obviously) Ketchup. At least 3/4 of a cup
1-3 cups of beer (Yuengling works quite well)
Honey to taste
Worcester sauce or a vinegar (apple works)
(Optional: add a splash of your favorite hot sauce for a bit of a bigger kick)

If you use more beer or need it to be thicker, add some more ketchup.
