What is your favorite barbecue sauce?

If you've ever been lucky enough to have been somewhere around Colombia South Carolina then you just may have had the chance to taste what has come to known as Colombia Gold. No not that kind of Colombia Gold. This Colombia Gold is a rich tasty mustard based barbecue sauce that can quickly convince you that you just may have discovered the worlds best barbecue sauce.

And while were all familiar with all the thick , sweet , tangy , and spicy barbecue sauces that line supermarket shelf's there is so much more to barbecue sauce than that. And there is nothing that can replace a rich delicious homemade barbecue sauce.

One day while visiting Newberry South Carolina I discovered Colombia Gold. And to say the least I was hooked. Colombia Gold has a sweet tangy flavor and it works great on pulled pork , pork sandwiches or chicken. That day in Newberry we had it on grilled chicken leg quarters and I thought it was one of the the most delicious tastiest things I ever ate. Below is the recipe for Colombia Gold.

1. 4 Cups Yellow Mustard.

2. 2 Cups Molasses.

3. 1 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar.

4. 1 Cup Honey.

5. 4 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil.

6. 1 Teaspoon Dried Oregano.

7. 1 Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper.

8. 1 Teaspoon Thyme.

9. 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper.

10. 2 Cups Chicken Stock.

Put all your ingredients into a large stock pot and cook for two hours over low heat stirring often. Let it cool to room temperature and you can store in a covered plastic container. If your barbecue sauce gets to thick add a little water. The cooking time is what makes this barbecue sauce so cook it on low heat until thick and delicious.

If you want to make excellent grilled chicken I suggest you start out by marinading your chicken leg quarters in Italian Dressing for at least 4 hours. Then wash your chicken off and spray with vegetable cooking spray well on both sides and place onto a pre-heated grill. You want your chicken to be almost done before you brush on the barbecue sauce. Save part of your Colombia Gold Barbecue Sauce to serve on the side.

You can also make very good pulled chicken barbecue by grilling your chicken until done and then take a fork and pull all your chicken off the bone. Place your pulled chicken meat into a large plastic bowl and add Colombia Gold Barbecue Sauce to taste.

And I guarantee you that you'll be saying wow! and you just may find that you love this mustard based barbecue sauce.

How You Carve Your Beef Brisket Is Very Important.

Carving your beef brisket is very important also. Be sure when you carve it that you cut across the grain. You should carve all beef like this but especially beef brisket. You can even cook a beef brisket in your home oven but it must be cooked slow over very low heat.

If you do cook your beef brisket in your home oven cook it at 300-325 degrees and cook it covered with water added to the pan at least for the first couple of hours. Sliced beef brisket with homemade mashed potatoes and brown gravy is oh so delicious.

If you want to cook potatoes and carrots with your beef brisket add them in the last 45 minutes of your cooking time.

      Barbecue sauce is fantastic, and it's so perfect for the summer and warm weather. My favorite kind to make is a spicy mango barbecue sauce! It's the perfect blend of sweet and spicy.
