American Summer Vacation Series 2010: Coach's Secret BBQ Rib Sauce Recipe

Want to make these? All you need is a little of this:

Let's break this down, shall we?

Figaro Liquid Smoke Hickory Barbecue Marinade

One half lemon

Bull's Eye (or your favorite) Barbeque Sauce

Kitchen Bouquet Browning and Seasoning Sauce

Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce

Light Brown Sugar

Roundy's Louisiana Style Hot Sauce

Hamm's Beer

Now, I am sure your favorite bbq sauce, hot sauce, or beer could be substituted to taste but this is what my stepdad, who we have always called "Coach", puts into his sauce and he is constantly being badgered for his recipe. Unfortunately for those of us who would like to replicate his sauce, this recipe is of the "oral history" variety i.e. it's never been written down and when pressed for precise measurements, Coach will simply eye-ball it, demonstrate and say, "About that much". What I can tell you is that the base is the bottle bbq sauce, the brown sugar is thrown in in hefty cups full and the rest is a few pinches, squeezes or splashes.

Good luck!
