Wings and Fries


with homemade "TBQ Sauce".

I'm not a fan of BBQ sauces, 
but I have always loved this sauce that comes from the
Tunnel BBQ Restaurant in Windsor, Ontario.

This restaurant has been in business since the 1940's.

A few years back I was given a copycat recipe for this sauce.

It is pretty close in flavour to the original. 
And it is very easy to make. No cooking involved.
It is made from ingredients that most will have on hand.
Although, every time I make it I have to go out and buy a bottle of ketchup.
This sauce is the only thing I make with ketchup
Not something I ever have on hand.  
.
Wonderful on wings and ribs.

TBQ Sauce

(Source: Windsor Newspaper) 

1/2 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup prepared mustard
1/2 cup vinegar white
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons chile powder
1/4 cup white sugar.

Place all ingredients in a blender and mix.  Store unrefrigerated. 
Seems to last forever.

MY NOTES:

This is the directions that I was given.   I stored mine in the refrigerator.

I used less  sugar than was called for, because I really do prefer a more savory then sweet sauce.

  5. Hi Ann - just the other day I handcut shoestring fries to go along with my shrimp burgers because my mandoline wasn't working out for me (and I'm always terrified of cutting myself!) This little sweet gadget would get a lot of use in my kitchen... luisa@luisascatering.com

  20. My mother in law LOVES tunnel BBQ sauce but doesn't get there as often as she'd like. I love but don't make oven fries because I'm not a fan of cutting the taters, this would be grate! ( like the pun?)

  22. I love gadgets and of course I do love oven baked fries. So much. I would drive kilometres to find good fries. I miss my days living in Ontario where chip trucks were common.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Val, I grew up just east of Toronto. When I was a kid, the chip truck came down our street every night in the summer. We would get the chips either in cones or a big bowl to share. I preferred my own cone, because I was the only one that didn't like vinegar on my fries. I still don't like vinegar.
