    nice post..i genuinely laughed a few times. do you normally weigh out your spices? or just eyeball it o.o

    Thanks for that! I have a scale I use for baking; it measures in grams in terms of accuracy. What’s that one saying? Cooking is philosophy unless its baking then its chemistry or something. But for a sauce like this you’re definitely right.

    Despite that I should get in the habit of using that especially since I’m looking to finish my curing chamber soon..first project coppa! or maybe the pancetta you posted if I don’t have time to finish up the chamber soon.

    I tried this BBQ sauce recipe today & loved it. I didn’t use the liquid smoke as I had it with smoked pulled pork & it worked a treat. I always enjoy reading the posts on this blog.

    The story says “Tomatoes come first, followed by the sour of mustard”. I don’t see any mustard added in this recipe. Was it left out or not used in the Northwestern Barbecue Sauce.

      Ha! You’re right. Somehow the mustard was omitted from the recipe here. Let me dig that up and update. Thanks for pointing that out.

    So, 8 months have gone by and still NO mustard. Which is right: the story or the recipe? AND, are your tomatoes soley within the ketchup?

    Hi – love the website. This recipe seems to have been replaced with the text ‘3p8wlxo9bz’. Thanks!

      Sorry. Working on fixing this. Looks like a hack happened a bit back. Still trying to roll back some of the recipes.
