Making Sauce and Rub

 I came home from work after I picked up feather bones at the market. The kitchen was surprisingly clean after the final wall sanding.

I started making some of my favorite rub and the sauce for the ribs on Monday. This sauce is great because it is made with stuff you probably have in the pantry already.

Barbecue Sauce from Cook's Illustrated

1 medium onion peeled and quartered
1 cup ketchup
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
2 T cider vinegar
2 T Worcestershire sauce
5 T molasses
1 t Tabasco
1/4 t black pepper
1 1/2 T liquid smoke
2 T oil
1 t minced garlic
1 t chili powder
1/4 t cayenne

Puree the onion with 1/4 c. water. Strain the juice into the sauce pan and add the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for 30 minutes.   Like it hot? I add a few pureed chilis in adobo but take care. It can get atomic if you add too much!

Barbecue Rub

2 1/2 T brown sugar
2T paprika
2T dry mustard
2 t garlic powder
2 t onion powder
1 1/2 t basil
1 t ground bay leaf
3/4 t coriander, savory, thyme, black pepper, white pepper
1/8 t cumin
1/4 c salt

Mix and store in a air tight jar.
