Those that follow me on facebook and my blog postings here know I am having a great time with my new Weber smoker and trying new ways to smoke meat. I had wanted to get into smoking for a long time and finally bought a Weber Smoky Mountain smoker this spring and gave it a try and now I'm hooked!
I can honestly say I haven't tried a new recipe yet that wasn't just great! But here is one that ranks right up there with the very best! This one is good on pork, chicken, or turkey. I found it in my Barbecue Bible by Steven Raichlen, who has written several very good books on barbecue.
Cranberry Barbecue Sauce
14 oz. ketchup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons molasses
1/4 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup jellied cranberry sauce, diced
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Combine all the ingredients into a saucepan and gradually bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring or whisking steadily to dissolve the bits of cranberry sauce. Gently simmer the sauce until thick and richly flavored, stirring often to prevent scorching, 15 to 20 minutes. Use right away or transfer to a large jar, cover, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate. The sauce will keep for several months. Makes about 2 1/2 cups.
