Smoker Sauce

Recipe by  

"I came up with this sauce for my wood smoker. It works on the barbecue, as well, or even as a marinade. I like to keep this in a sealed jar in the refrigerator until I'm ready to use it."

I made this so quick Ididn't even add to recipe box right away. I used this sauce over the memorial weekend and the chefs put it on the ribs,hamburgers, crab cakes,shrimp and chicken. I was asked to bring it to the family's fourth of July picnic and and outdoor wedding. Thank the heavens I was able to add it and print it or I would have been exiled. THANK YOU THANK YOU for your recipe and web site

Yummy! I knew my fiance would not touch this if it was chunky at all, so I threw all the ingredients in the blender and whirred it up! I added a little more soy sauce and garlic than called for. Delicious!

I was unsure about the mixture of barbeque sauce, salsa and soy, but it worked really well! I cut back on the soy, but I should have used the whole thing. I used mild salsa, but this would be great using hot sauce and honey barbeque sauce for a sweet/hot kick. Will be using this sauce again! Thanks!
