Do you have a favorite BBQ sauce recipe, perhaps something with brown sugar and honey?

I'm going to smoke some items tomorrow, spare ribs, a Boston butt, Italian sausage and some brisket. I have the ribs and brisket covered in a dry rub, chicken drums and thighs in brine, and the butt soaking in apple juice with some salt, brown sugar and cinnamon.

1. KC Masterpiece + a can of Chipotles.

Best sauce to slather on skewered prawns wrapped in bacon.

ETA: For the brisket, I would mix this half and half with a good commercial BBQ sauce like Jack Daniels.

Sounds like mine but I like to add a little bit of celery salt and just a touch of liquid smoke to finish it off.

8. my son loves to play around with BBQ sauces

base of ketchup (already has sugar, tomato vinegar - or you can do those individually) then more brown sugar and/or molasses, vinegar, bit of mustard, onion, garlic, soy, hot pepper, smoke flavor from liquid smoke, smoked paprika, or chipotles. sometimes instead of or in addition to the sugar we throw in a leftover jar of jam or fruit preserves nobody wants to finish.

can get quite hot and spicy, tangy and vinegary, or sweet and rich depending on proportions of stuff.

when I was young there was a group of old Arizona Pioneer families that met once year for a steak fry and there was a mustard based sauce that was so good, I wish I could find that recipe again. I know it was published in the paper once in the early 70s. I might have found it more recently, but didn't have subscription access to look at the old images.

9. One of my favorite things to massage into those flabby, tasteless chicken breasts

is a combination of brown sugar and spicy brown mustard.. It really is a lovely combination.
