The weather is warming up, and that means I can pull out the grill! I was out of bottled barbecue sauce, so decided to try to come up with a little something on my own. Why not, right?
I marinaded some chicken thighs in it, and it was pretty darned good, if I do say so myself.
2 cups ketchup
1 quart water
1 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons paprika
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup each dark-brown sugar, chili powder, fresh lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce
3 cloves of garlic, very finely minced
Boil everything together until thickened, stirring constantly.
I’m sure it would be tasty on other meats as well. I can’t wait to find out!
