Cheerwine Barbecue Sauce

Because the sauce has sugar, use it carefully. Grill over indirect heat, or use it as a dipping sauce or a finishing glaze.

Recipe Ingredients

1 (12 ounce) can Cheerwine

5 ounces molasses

6 ounces brown sugar

10 ounces prepared barbecue sauce (tomato-based)

2 ounces distilled white vinegar

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 ounce Liquid Smoke


Combine all ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and let cool. Pour into a container and refrigerate until ready to use.

Makes 1/3 gallon.
