Category: Sauces, Barbeque

 Ingredients List

  • 4 lg Onions; chopped
  • 3 tb Vegetable oil; for sauteing
  • 1 28 oz can tomato puree
  • 3 28 oz cans tomatoes; with
  • -juice
  • 2 1/2 c White vinegar
  • 4 tb Packed dark brown sugar
  • 4 tb Granulated sugar
  • 2 tb Salt
  • 2 tb Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 2 tb Paprika
  • 2 tb Chili powder
  • 4 tb Molasses
  • 1 c Orange juice
  • 2 tb Liquid Barbecue Smoke.
  • 8 tb Brown mustard; Dijon-style


In a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan, saute the onion in the oil over
medium-high heat until golden brown, about 7 to 10 minutes.

Add all the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil, then reduce the heat
and simmer uncovered at the lowest possible heat for 4 hours. (This long
cooking removes as much acidity as possible from the tomatoes.)

Puree sauce in 2, 3, or more batches to prevent it from spilling out of
your food processor or blender.

Will keep 2 weeks, covered, in the refrigerator.
