    I can't stand store bought BBQ sauce. I will make my own.

    You mean squeeze some into a mixing bowl and give it a stir with a whisk and call it your own?



    Laugh1 It's not as easy as that but it's still pretty easy to make your own. Some crushed tomotoes (canned is fine) some spice, some syrup/honey/molasses, etc... stir it up in a pot over heat and put in the fridge... done. Better than anything store bought.

    My wife makes some but she won't let me see. I can tell that there's brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce in there anyway... and perhaps...

    POISON!!!

    Ohnoes!

    That would explain a lot. How much of this home made "BBQ sauce" do you eat?

    That's why I prefer to do the cooking. I also get to eat what ever I want because she's so grateful i'm cooking she'll eat whatever I serve her.

    Great thread.

    I love Ketchup/Catsup Sarcasm Heinz is preferred, when it is on sale. Same with anything though... Cola (prefer Pepsi > Coke btw). Price is very important.

    Ketchup on KD is normal for me, same with eggs, hotdogs, burgers, toast, breakfast sausages.

    Frank's Red Hot Sauce is good too. I have put it on eggs before.

    And you should try curry powder on KD next time, it's quite good. Add it to taste after mixing in the Milk, Butter/Margarine and cheese.

    Do you know what a duvet is? A blanket....just a blanket.

    Actually a blanket does not have to be "stuffed". A Duvet is more like a quilt in some ways.

    By the way, we finally got a duvet about a month or so ago and it's fantastic. So light, yet warm, but does not feel stuffy. Costco had the Queen size for $100 (real goose down).

    Uh-oh. I fear a "Duvet" thread coming up.

    I got hooked on Camp 31 BBQ sauce at the Ottawa Ribfest. I now order it online from them. Heinz is my favourite ketchup and like Dash, I put it on a lot of things. For those that like hot sauces, check out Chilly Chilies

    Shouldn't that be Frank's Red hot? I put that ?xIT on everything.

    My colleague uses this Asian rooster sauce that is sweet at first, then turns into napalm. It's a clear bottle with a green cap. He calls it "Wang Sauce". It's vile.

    Was that a censored word or does he really call it that?

    Hickory vs. Mesquite: can you tell the difference in a blind taste test?

    Censored. Think of a less pleasant word for rooster. Wink

    While we're talking hot sauce... Sriracha is where it's at! That's got some nice heat...

    Sriracha sauce, aka "Rooster Sauce." The best.


    That's it. Bottled evil.
    Thanks for the picture. I didn't know what sauce you guys were talking about but I recognize the picture. That's the stuff we have. Its pretty much mainstream and I believe that we buy it at Costco.
