Ménage à Trois Barbeque Sauce

This sauce has a good output of 3 flavors – Sweet, Sour, & Spice in that order – hence the name. The flavors just kind of swish around your palate. It makes a pretty glaze on chicken and ribs cooked on indirect heat when applied in several coats during final 30 minutes. For direct heat barbecuing apply during the final turns of the meat.

1 cup ketchup

1 ½ cups brown sugar

2 tbs yellow mustard

1/3 cup bourbon

½ cup apple cider vinegar

½ cup lemon juice

1 tbs garlic powder

½ tsp Zateran’s Liquid Crab Boil – be careful with this as it will overpower so maybe do less and add to taste

Combine first two ingredients over low to medium heat until sugar liquefies. Then add remaining ingredients in order stirring as you add. Simmer over low heat until thick almost like syrup.
