Hellhound and Homemade BBQ Pt. 3 - The Cheater's Way

I talk a lot about "cheater" recipes and my "cheater's" smoker. When I use this term, I don't mean for it to be snobby. Because while a show like Semi-Homemade with Sandra Lee might not be the most high-brow cooking show. At least it gets people out of cooking only from a box or the freezer. And even if you're just adding one or two ingredients to a prepared meal, it's a step in the right direction.

So rather than give away my full BBQ sauce recipe (which many people won't take the time to make) here's a "cheater's version " that will get you 95% of the way there.

60-Minute BBQ Sauce
Combine these in a medium sauce pan and boil until reduced to 4 oz of liquid (use a larger pan than you would expect - this foams a lot.Reduce the heat to medium low and add the following:
  • 2 cups of KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce (it's a little sweet, but makes a good base)
  • 1 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup to 2/3 of a cup of vinegar (I've used cider, white balsamic, and red wine vinegar all to good effect).
  • Salt and black pepper to taste.

So there you have it. This sauce works best with pork and chicken.
