Papa Mike’s BBQ Sauce

Let me begin by saying that I grew up in a grilling family.  And, when you grow up in a grilling family, you need a proper family BBQ sauce to put on, well, just about everything.
This past weekend we visited the grill master, “Papa” Mike, and dined on chicken and ribs smothered in the good stuff.
Do you see that grill?  I wasn’t kidding when I say we grew up in a grilling family.  
One of my uncles even custom makes big enormous party grills.  I don’t know what the men drool over more…the grill or what is on the grill.

To be honest, we pretty much all stand around the grill with mouths watering.  Go ahead, take a look.

Okay, enough already, it’s time to eat!

No use trying a bib with all this sticky goodness.  Better off to just remove the entire shirt.

Nothing but happy customers at this backyard BBQ!  I hope you enjoy this sauce as much as our family has over the years.
Papa Mike’s BBQ Sauce
64 oz Hunts Original BBQ Sauce (or Favorite Sauce)*
1 jar Salsa
1 c Honey
1/4 c Jack Daniels
1 c Light Brown Sugar

Add all ingredients to a sauce pan and heat while stirring on medium-low.  Reduce heat when sugar is dissolved and sauce just begins to bubble.  Simmer (stirring occasionally) for 1 hour.  Drizzle over ribs, chicken, or pork during the last few minutes of grilling.  Set aside extra sauce pan for dipping.  
*Recipe as given makes 3 bottles.  Extra sauce can be stored in plastic freezer bags and frozen.  To reheat, simply thaw overnight and warm in sauce pan.
