"Use this toward the end of cooking as you would for any BBQ meat such as pork, ribs, or chicken. I have even used it on beef and hamburgers, sausages, hot dogs, or anything you want, for the most part. I use it on everything from ribs to roasts to hamburgers to hot dogs. Even goes good with a good old classic grilled cheese sandwich. This is a great all-round BBQ sauce. Use right away or cool to room temperature, transfer to jars or containers, and refrigerate. The sauce will keep for several months in the fridge."

I made this as directed with all the ingredients as listed. I, too, felt adding the ketchup after everything else was blended helped. The red pepper was a bit too spicy for me but exactly right for the hubby. Will definitely make this again and will half the red chile pepper.

I enjoyed this recipe. I think the most important part is the simmering before adding the ketchup. That really helped the flavors. I will do that again. I do like the heat and smokiness of a chipotle or chipotle sauce in BBQ so I may exchange the liquid smoke next time. This is a good starting point and excellent method.

I've only just begun to try out BBQ sauce recipes. I'm from the western piedmont/foothills area of NC so I'm used to a smoky, sweet, red BBQ sauce. This recipe is a great place to start. As you make it, experiment with how much spice or sweetness you prefer. I plan to make this recipe and then divide it in half and then make one more spicy and the other one more sweet for my family who has differing tastes!
