bold and smoky barbecue sauce kansas city style

Seems to me if I am going to have a site on grilling and more importantly barbequing that means one key ingredient is needed – a sauce of our own. I recently did some research as I wanted to know what people thought was the best sauce and I visited a bunch of place to find varying opinions but one of the things I did see come up quite often was people seem to love Kansas City style barbeque sauce and so I set out to come up with one that did this favorite justice. The result is below and I think it will meld all the things together that we seem to love in a great BBQ sauce. One it has to have an underlying sweetness that is there to balance the other many thing people seem to love in a great BBQ sauce and that is a bold bit of bite or tang to it something that is a mix of both acid and heat.

The following sauce has both these elements in it in what I think is a very nice balance the heat comes to it in a few ways so it is not just one dimensional it has kind of layers of heat if you would from the Hungarian paprika, the English style mustard, the chipotle which also gives it a bit of smokiness, black pepper, and the red pepper flakes. While these all help deliver the heat the sweetness comes in the form of the brown sugar, blackstrap molasses and the ketchup.

So I know when you are looking at this recipe the first thing is oh my gosh look at all that goes into this ingredient wise but all the different things are important to keep the balance and it at first may seem intimidating but it is supper simple to put together really just whisking everything together in the sauce pan and add the bay leave then let it simmer and fill the house with a lovely aroma that will put you in the mood for a cookout. That is probably one of the biggest reasons other then the lack of chemicals to make your own it will fill the whole house with a wonderful barbeque smell before you ever even spark up the grill.
