Coyote Bait Spicy Flavored BBQ Sauce:
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons freshly minced garlic
- Two 29-ounce cans tomato puree
- 2 cups red wine vinegar
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1 cup molasses
- 1/2 cup hickory flavored liquid smoke
- 5 tablespoons Coyote Bait Hickory Flavored Campfire Seasoning, recipe above
- 2 tablespoons crushed red pepper, optional
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice concentrate, such as ReaLemon from concentrate
Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Cook the onions and garlic, stirring occasionally, until the onions become translucent, about 7 minutes. Do not brown or caramelize the onions. Add the tomato puree. While mixing the puree with the onion mixture, stir in the vinegar. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Fold in the sugar and molasses using a wooden spoon. Stir from the bottom of the sauce pan in an upward motion to prevent the sugar from scorching or sticking to the pan. Cook until the sugar and molasses have liquefied, about 10 minutes. Thoroughly mix in the liquid smoke and Coyote Bait Hickory Flavored Campfire Seasoning. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes. Add the crushed red pepper if using and the lemon juice. Reduce to a simmer and stir occasionally, about 15 minutes. The sauce is done when the pigment has darkened and bubbles have formed at the surface. Yield: 3 1/2 quarts.
