    I was going to start a post for a review of #5...then I saw this one so I'll just add my comments here.

    As a foreword, I have to inform you that I am originally from NJ...but I did do 3 tours at Ft, Bragg, NC during my 37 combined years of Active Army and Civil Service.

    That said...I DO NOT like a lot of vinegar...(wine on the other hand...). So, knowing that some amount of vinegar is beneficial to the taste buds I made a batch of #5 the other day and it's all gone.

    The only changes I made (not liking vinegar) was reducing the vinegar by half...1/4 Cup, and not adding meat drippings. (The PP was from a previous session). I'll have to do another session (or two) before the snow flies to make it through the winter.

    OK, MY REVIEW: FANTASTIC FLAVOR! It surprised the hell out of me. It checked off all the flavor boxes. We will be making this again. Thanks, Steve.

    Another batch of No.5 Sauce today. I am so please so many have embraced sauce making since I stumbled on this simple formula.
    Questions about your additions...Have you tried:

    Dried or frozen cherries or maybe pineapple (perhaps added to vinegar and processed in a blender before adding to sauce) ?

    Butt Rub for Jane has been a guide for me...has anyone tried any of the many curries for a rub base used in No.5 ?

    Old vintage honey-the deep dark stuff ?

    Share whats been your most recent favorite.

    I guess I need to be more adventurous with it. I've pretty much stuck to the basics with whatever rub I'm using. Good stuff!

    Hibiscus.
    Yep the last addition I tried is hibiscus. As in hibiscus tea leaves. The deep crimson color and berry flavor works quite well.
    The technique is to grind leaves in a blade coffee bean grinder. My batch had 1/4 cup of leaves added.

    This is still my family's favorite sauce. In fact, we went to Mission BBQ for dinner last night. Kids tried all their sauces and found one they both liked. But they both said it was good, but not anywhere near as good as "Dad's" sauce. I've taken to adding an ounce or two of bourbon and a little honey.

    Nothing is as good as 'Dad's' sauce! So glad your family enjoys it.
    Bourbon sounds good-I have not tried it.
    I am willing to bet that Honey in my Hibiscus version would work well. It's good in my Hibiscus tea.

    Steve, I'm not sure if I should shake your hand or kick you in the shins....

    I made this yesterday when I smoked for a gang. I'm gonna be making it (or a variation) on a pretty regular basis. Only change yesterday from the original post was adding about a quarter cup of au jus left over from the prime rib I assassinated in the smoker last weekend. Yes, it was very well received.
