Hey folks, I've been searching for the recipe for sauce no. 5, but I can't find it. Could someone point me to a recipe?

Thanks!

MartinB, nice variation on a tried and true classic. My variation comes from a friend and it calls for the original recipe plus 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne and 1 tbsp of liquid smoke. I will try your version soon!

Ruin? The liquid smoke rounds out the flavor for me. To each his own, but I wouldn't want to ruin it for you. ;)

EDIT: spelling error.

I make a variation of the #5 sauce but for heat I cut a jalapeno in half seed it and float it in the sauce while it simmers for an hour. I also use liquid smoke but maybe only a half tsp.

This is the beauty of the #5 sauce. It is an exceptional sauce with thrust the original 5 ingredients, but Those 5 ingredients also lend themselves perfectly to whatever it is you wish to add to make it perfect in your own way. Myself, I like to add a shot of Captain Morgan spiced rum. It gives it a little sweetness that my family really loves.

Sorry, I was feeling cranky last night. One of the things I like about making my own sauce is that I can avoid liquid smoke. Store bought sauces almost all have it and I'd rather taste the smoke I spent so much time putting on the meat in the WSM than the liquid smoke. On the other hand, to add some smoke flavor on something I didn't smoke can be a good thing.

Been using #5 for years it's great just as is but also a great base to experiment with. 99% of the time I just add a TBS. of Penzeys BBQ 3000 and call it good.
