Steven Raichlen’s Nashville Sweet Barbecue Sauce
2 cups Ketchup
1⁄2 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
6-8 tablespoons fresh Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon grated Lemon Zest
2 Tbsp. Molasses
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 1⁄2 teaspoons Liquid Smoke
2 teaspoons Dry Mustard
1 teaspoon Onion Powder
1⁄2 teaspoon ground Black Pepper
Combine ketchup, brown sugar, lemon juice, zest, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, mustard, onion powder, and pepper in a nonreactive saucepan. Whisk to mix. Let the sauce gradually come to a simmer over medium heat and simmer until thick and flavorful, 8 to 10 minutes. If not serving the sauce immediately, let cool to room temperature, transfer to air tight jars and refrigerate until serving.
Nothing says grilling like a sweet Nashville barbecue sauce. Our favorite wines to pair with this would be our Vineyard Selection Wines – Cabrillo Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 or the Wakefield Shiraz.
