UNCLE JOE'S BBQ SAUCE IN-A-BAG
Just when you are getting used to the notion of sliced bread, somebody reinvents the wheel. I am talking about “UNCLE JOE’S BBQ SAUCE-IN-A-BAG”. This is a product that thinks outside the bottle. Just add water and ketchup to the bag of spices, heat and presto change-o you have barbeque sauce. Uncle Joe’s claims; no salt, no msg, and ‘the fun with bbq sauce starts here’. Uncle Joe encourages you to have fun and customize this bbq sauce by adding your own accents such as honey or cayenne. This bag of spices can also be used as a rub, in salsas, cole slaws and even includes a recipe for bbq chicken teriyaki. The instructions for making the bbq sauce could not be easier. Simmer contents of package with ½ cup ketchup and 1 ¾ cup of water for 4 minutes, remove from heat and let cool. We will give this sauce a try on some bbq beef ribs.
We followed the instructions and the end sauce was a little on the thin side. It smelled of cumin with a little hint of smoke. The taste was pleasant and familiar. It was not overly sweet and had no heat whatsoever. The sauce was basted on some beef bones that had been grilled on the que. The sauce did carmalize and made the ribs glisten. The ribs were a pretty site. The ribs rocked our world with flavor. They were fall off the bone smack-o-delish. Uncle Joe said it himself; you can customize your sauce. It did need some more sweet and heat. ‘Uncle Joe’s sauce-in-a-bag’ is unique, convenient and fun. It would be great for that camping trip. It can be used as a base for your own custom bbq sauce. We had fun!
