  1. Jerry,

    I've used this one for years with good results that a friend gave to me. Not sure where she got it from, but I'm sure it isn't her own. I live in MN where people sure aren't used to it so that should tell you something.....

    Columbia Gold Barbecue Sauce Recipe

    2 cups prepared yellow mustard (no Dijon)
    2/3 cup cider vinegar
    3 tablespoons tomato paste
    1/2 teaspoon chipotle Tabasco sauce
    3/4 cup sugar
    2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules or 1 cube
    2 teaspoons dried rosemary leaves
    1 teaspoon celery seed
    3 teaspoons mustard powder
    2 teaspoons onion powder
    2 teaspoons garlic powder
    1 teaspoon table salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

    1) Mix the wet ingredients together in a bowl.

    2) If you are using a bouillon cube, crush it with a spoon in a bowl or mortar & pestle and add it to the bowl. Crush the rosemary leaves and celery seed in a mortar & pestle or in a blender or coffee grinder and add it to the bowl. Add the rest of the dry ingredients to the bowl and mix thoroughly. Let it sit for a an hour in the refrigerator for the flavors to meld. No cooking necessary. Leftovers will keep in the fridge for a month or more.

      That's the recipe from, which is a site I use a lot.

      They also have a grownup mustard sauce recipe, which is also good. It has more herbs and complex flavors.

        I knew she must have found it somewhere. I've seen that site before, but never looked at the sauces. It's invaluable as a guide for how to prepare the meat itself. Thanks for the tip.

        Wow, I wouldn't have thought of doing something like this. I was thinking more like a honey mustard glaze! This looks great.

      3. This is Cooks Illustrated "South Carolina BBQ" sauce I love it and its really easy to throw together.

        1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
