Strawberry Margarita Barbecue Sauce

Strawberry Margarita Barbecue Sauce 3.000
Jun 8, 2005

Fruit-based sauces taste great on pork and poultry. This definitely sweet recipe comes from pitmaster Paul Kirk, aka the Kansas City Baron of Barbecue.


Servings: 3 quarts
Ingredients
  • 2 cups strawberry jelly
  • 1 quart strawberries, stemmed and sliced in half
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 quart ketchup
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup raspberry balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) frozen limeade concentrate
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger root
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 2 tablespoons triple sec
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons finely ground sea salt, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

In a large pan over medium-high heat, combine all the ingredients until heated through. The mixture will be thick to start but will become somewhat thinner after it is heated. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat to cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Puree in batches in a blender or food processor until smooth. Place in airtight containers and refrigerate until ready to use.
