Generally, I put a lot of time and thought into my posts, but our air conditioner quit at 4:00 this morning and the A/C guy isn’t here yet.
(In case you haven’t heard, Oklahoma’s temps have been in the 100’s for the past two months…)
Here’s what our inside temp reads now.
(P.S. It’s 10° “warmer” in my writing nook…)
Thankfully, I have a cool place to retreat to as soon as I’m done with this, and thankfully I planned a barbecue for dinner tonight.
Last night I made my Quick BBQ sauce and it was delish brushed over barbecued ham steaks. (How does one spell BBQ correctly anyway?)
But patience, sweet ones, patience… it really is better the next day.
I also fooled around with my camera just for fun… :)
This is as basic as BBQ Sauce gets!
Quick BBQ Sauce
1/2 c. ketchup (I used Heinz)
3 Tbsp. honey
1/2 Tbsp. yellow mustard
1/2 tsp. liquid smoke
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
(Optional add-in’s: red pepper flakes to taste, a dash of hot sauce, a shot of whiskey)
Combine ingredients in a small saucepan.
Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat; simmer 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Cool, then store in the refrigerator.
Bring to room temperature before applying to grilled meats.
Brush sauce on during the last minutes of grilling and ENJOY!
Ooof… here’s what our temp was last time I looked, and it went up a degree after I uploaded the picture!
Enjoying the prospect of grilling… but not indoors…. gotta run!
