Seven Secrets of a BBQ Restaurateur and One Not-secret BBQ Sauce Recipe
I still am a good student and I still talk too much. That's just who I am. So in my latest post for Char-broil, as a Char-broil All-Star, I got to dish up secrets of of running a BBQ restaurant. I wanted to go to eleven, so I could say it. You know. These go to eleven*. But they stopped me at seven. Something about the fact that most people won't read past three paragraphs.
That just makes me want to put the really good stuff at the bottom where only those listening get a chance for a prize. Hey, there's an idea.
Click here to read the entire post, and all seven secrets of a BBQ Restaurateur. One of my secrets involves cleaning smelly grease traps.. And yes, I always have to check the spelling of restaurateur.
If you simply want a BBQ Sauce Recipe that rocks and can be changed according to what is in YOUR refrigerator, right now, then...no, not that. Nothing moldy. You should really throw it out, but that other thing, yeah that bit of jam and the Thai chili sauce next to it would work.
Right. The barbecue sauce recipe. Just one click away. Right in time for the 4th of July. Barbecue sauce is one of the easiest things in the whole barbecue world to make. It cracks me up how people guard their sauce recipes with such ferocity. Totally smoke and mirrors, pun intended. It's the one thing about owning a BBQ restaurant that, once you have a sauce you like, really doesn't give you trouble. It doesn't show up late to work, it doesn't require a permit, it doesn't even clog up the grease trap. Sauce graciously accompanies your smoked meats each and every day without complaint. I really love barbecue sauce.
My next post will be a series on smoking a whole pig so come back soon!
