The secret to great Barbeque Sauce is...

Coffee! Suprised? I was when I saw it on the Food Network, but then I thought, hey, why not? Coffee makes everything better! :)) Seriously though, they interviewed the owner of one of the top BBQ places in the south and his secret ingredient was super strong coffee. I haven't tried it yet, but I certainly want to.

Coffee Barbecue Sauce
Use this coffee barbecue sauce as a marinade or finishing sauce for grilled or baked pork, beef, or chicken. The sauce may be covered and refrigerated up to 2 weeks.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

1/2 cup brewed espresso or strong, dark coffee
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped, about 1 cup
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
3 fresh hot chili peppers, such as jalapeno, or hotter if desired, seeded
2 Tablespoons hot dry mustard mixed with 1 tablespoon warm water
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons ground cumin
2 Tablespoons chili powder

Put espresso or coffee, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, onion, garlic, chile peppers, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, cumin, and chili powder in a small pot, stir them together, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Lower the heat so the mixture is just simmering and let simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat, let the mixture cool, then puree it in a blender or food processor fitted with the steel blade.

Well, now we can kill two birds with one stones: eat our favorite barbecue and drink (or eat again????) our beloved coffee at the same time ;)

Brown Eye Piggy Sauce

1 Bottle of BBQ sauce
4 ounces of a triple strength brewed coffee or some espresso
2 Tbsp Tabasco Sauce
1 Tbsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper
1 Tbsp of Bourbon Whiskey

If brewing your coffee, put 3 times the amount of coffee grounds as normal, and only brew through about 4-6 ounces. If using espresso, pull 2-3 doubles. Mix all ingredients well. The BBQ sauce will thin. If sauce thins too much, have another bottle of sauce ready, and add enough to attain desired consistency. Apply to last 15 minutes of your BBQ.

Remember the recipe above is a guideline. Don't be afraid to experiment with other ingredients like apple juice, cilantro, fresh garlic, or molasses. Get Creative and don't forget to Share and Enjoy!
