Best Competition BBQ Sauce Recipe

ajm1555 May 6, 2009 09:10 AM

I am entering a BBQ contest and I am really undecided on what BBQ sauce recipe I want to use. I am smoking pork ribs for 5 hours and I want to add the perfect sauce that adds taste and has a great appearance. Any thoughts?

      Dreamland BBQ in Alabama makes some of the most addictive sauce on the planet. Here is a clone recipe that tastes pretty close to the original:

        Take any commercial barbecue sauce and mix it half and half with mojo criollo (Spanish barbecue sauce). Add discreet amounts of the following ingredients:

        Thai peppers and garlic
        Lime juice
        pineapple juice
        dark rum
        white balsamic vinegar

        You'll knock 'em dead.

          I've made this one several times, and it's fun to play with too:
