Jacks Barbecue Sauce

Sometimes it is easier to just go to the store and purchase barbecue sauce.

But when you come across a recipe that is killer, than it is worth the extra effort. This is just such a recipe.

I just found it among my deceased father’s papers (the Second Yankee Chef) and what a relief it was. Ever since he passed on in 2001, I have time and time again tried to replicate his sauce, but never have been able to.

Now I can rest, so conjure up a batch, you will also fall in love with this saucy slather.

2 cups ketchup

2 cups tomato sauce half (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup minced onion

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon relish

1 teaspoon garlic powder

3/4 teaspoon dry mustard

Large pinch black pepper
 
Simply whisk all ingredients (including half the juice from the pineapple) in a large bowl and that’s it.
