Beer and Barbecue go hand in hand. And this recipe is no exception. Be sure to save some of the beer for the cook as it will make him a happier person and make the food more tender! Enjoy!
Mix/Blend the following ingredients:
12 oz beer, preferably a dark rich beer
1 cup of ketchup
1 Tbs crushed red pepper
2 Tbs turbanado sugar (or brown sugar if unavailable)
3 cloves of garlic - minced
2 Tbs sweet basil
2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp dry mustard
This one is simple. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and slowly bring to a boil (sugars and tomatoes will burn easily). Stir until blended then reduce to simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and use during the last 1/2 of the cooking time.
Don't forget to use your dry rub to set up the pork for additional flavor! Enjoy!
