One 14 oz bottle of ketchup

½ cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1/3 cup water

Mix all ingredients together in a sauce pan and heat to a boil. Stir to

dissolve the sugar… and it’s done!

General BBQ Tips from a guy who thinks he’s the best barbecue ever (don’tall men think that?)

1.  Keep the heat low as it cooks the meat more evenly.

2.  Marinate, marinate, marinate, since BBQ tends to dry meat.

3.  If you use wood chips for smoking, soak them in water first for at least 30


4.  Boil ribs on the stove for 30 minutes before placing on the barbecue, to prevent them from getting tough.

5.  If meat was frozen, ensure it is thoroughly thawed in the center before placing on the barbecue.

6.  Limit salt as it dries the meat.

7.  If placing fish filets on the barbecue, ensure you have a fine grill, or put them on oiled

aluminum foil with holes poked in it.  Otherwise the meat will drop through the grill.

This is delicious, but not recommended for red meat as it’s a bit too sweet.
