    No. 5 Sauce

    1 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
    1 tablespoon rub

    Opional but v. good: 1/4 cup meat drippings
    (whats left in the foil after the rest)

    Simmer to marry the flavors and thicken as desired.

    P.S. My rubs are low salt.

    This one disappeared in two weeks-made a new batch today. I made both batches with the Memorial Rub. I added a pinch or two of chipotle pepper for a little warmth.

    Just wanted you to know that this recipe is genius. I have cooked up several recipes every week for months looking for exactly the sauce my wife considered right and guess what... she didn't like my first attempt with yours, but changed the rub and reduced the vinegar...a winner.
    This is one of those sauces that you can make form memory anytime and depending on your rub it becomes your signature sauce.

    For the record, I reduced the vinegar to 1/3 cup and used Alton Browns butt rub. I find that I want to make more sauce everytime I mix a new batch of rub to see how it comes out.

    Thanks for the simplicity of this sauce.

    Yesterday's version added 3/4 teaspoon of my smoked hot peppers and 1/3 cup of water to thin.

    Steve,
    Here's how I'm currently "making it my own" (that reminds me of something Paula Abdul would say). Still working on getting it hot enough.

    1 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup cider vinegar
    1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon worchestershire sauce
    2 teaspoons Blues Hog Rub
    1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne
    12 twists fresh ground black pepper
    1/4 to 1/2 tsp. crushed Red Pepper
    At least 1/4 tsp. of Louisiana Hot Sauce

    Charles, I like where you are headed. I have added some of my smoked hot peppers before. A little heat is beneficial.

    The last batch was a little sweet-perhaps 1/4 cup brown sugar would have been better and/or more heat.

    Great sauce. I reduced the vinegar by half and added some lousiana hot sauce and a little more rub. I used some store bought rub to get rid of it.
