IntroductionHomemade BBQ Sauce, NO PRESERVATIVES! Homemade BBQ Sauce, NO PRESERVATIVES!
1/2 Tbsp Olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 cup tomato sauce (half a can)
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp Worcestershire
1 Tbsp prepared mustard
Dash of salt
Dash of pepper
Dash of liquid smoke (optional)
To barbecue chicken in the oven:
First prepare the barbecue sauce as directed above. While it is simmering yank the skin off of 4 or 5 chicken leg quarters. Cut the thigh from the leg if desired. Arrange the chicken in a large baking pan, 9 by 13-inch or 10 by 15-inch. When the sauce is finished simmering, pour it over the chicken in the pan. Cover the pan with tin foil and bake it at 350 for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. You can remove the foil for the last half hour of cooking to thicken up the sauce in the pan if desired. The chicken is done when it is well flavored, and falling from the bone. Serve with the sauce from the pan. Provide plenty of napkins, or even a dish towel for each person, sloppy but good.
You can do country style pork ribs the same way if desired. I cook them for 2-1/2 to 3 hours, so they are good and tender.
Boneless Skinless chicken breasts and pork chops will take about 1 hour.
