Bbq sauce is something sublime when you find one this good. My bbq sauce obsession started around 1993 when I lived down the street from a bbq joint on Divisadero street in San Francisco called Brother in Laws. Their bbq sauce was so delicious I just craved it all the time. Their peach cobbler was also outstanding. I could get half a chicken, two slices of bread, and two sides for about $5. Boy was that a bargain! I ate there once a week for many years until the owner sold the business to one of his employees who had the nerve to change the receipe for the sauce and I never went back. Still to this day I can taste that sauce in my mind, and guess what? I still cannot recreate it. I guess memories of delicious things from our past just cannot be topped.
So this sauce is my attempt to make my own addictive sauce, and guess what? I am addicted to it!
This fantastic bbq sauce is so delicious you can eat it straight out of the jar with a spoon. No kidding. It is based around molasses, dark cane sugar, a good amount of cider vinegar for tang and the addition of bourbon, espresso, fresh apple cider, our famous ketchup and a variety of spices and peppers. One of the spices is a five spice blend, which gives it just the faintest anise flavor from the fennel and star anise. It has more heat to it than our other bbq sauce. When I am too tired to cook, I will grab a rotisserie chicken at the supermarket and just dip the meat into this sauce. No matter how much sauce I pour on the plate, it is never enough. Delicious!
