Gonzo's Magic Sauce

Here it is, the sauce that compliments the rub! This is by far my favorite BBQ sauce. I'm pretty much revealing a trade secret here... it's great on ribs!

  • 1 12-oz can salt-free tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup worchestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp hot sauce (optional, season to taste)
  • 1/4 cup Gonzo's Magic Rub (see below, season to taste)
  • 3 tsp honey
  • Drippings from whatever you are barbecuing...


Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and set on low heat, stirring frequently. The "drippings" from barbecue can be gathered by placing some aluminum foil under the meat while it is slowly cooking... about 20 minutes worth will be enough, but the more the better! Then simply pour these drippings into the saucepan.

Continue to cook under low to medium heat--you will want to get the sauce up to just at a simmer and then reduce the heat to hold it at that temperature. Once it gets here, watch it constantly to keep it from burning. Reduce to a very thick sauce.
