Here, it is roasted pork, beef or chicken with a seasoned sauce. Roasting over a wood fire imparts a great flavor, but most cook the meat in a conventional oven.
The smell of meat roasting is always better than the actual eating. Like many, I got to have a little barbeque sauce.
There are vinegar based sauces and tomato-based sauces. My favorite is Jamaican Barbeque sauce which has a little of both. My mom found this recipe in an article by Dear Abby around 1970? Who would have thought someone from Iowa knew the perfect sauce?
1 1/2 cups cider vinegar 1 cup catsup 4 tsp of lemon juice
2 tsp of brown sugar 1/2 cup tomato puree 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3/4 tsp salt 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tablespoon of prepared mustard
1 tablespoon of liquid smoke 1 tsp cayenne pepper
Refrigerate until ready to use. Heat sauce to use on pork chops, meat loaf, hamburger, brisket or roasted meats.
