This sauce's minimalism let's the pungency and tartness of yellow mustard do most of the work, while just some honey, Worcestershire, and pepper add the complimentary barbecue notes.

Cherry-chipotle Barbecue Sauce

To date, I've shared almost everything I've made—at least all recipes worthy of sharing—just as I made them so you can hopefully grill and smoke up dishes that come out exactly how they did for me. The only thing I've held back on are my exact recipes for the sauces and I rubs I used in competition, and at one point, even considered bottling and selling. I have not done any comps in a long time and have no plans to sell my stuff, so I don't really see a reason to guard these few recipes any longer. So to release one such item from the vault, I decided to share my cherry-chipotle barbecue sauce, which is a sauce that's equally delicious and unique, making it something you likely won't find on grocery shelves and should definitely try out at home.

A pairing of super sweet ketchup and smoky and meaty bacon output a sauce that suffers from a bit of a personality disorder.

Finding a great footing with mustard, Melvin's Southern Red BBQ has an excellent spicy and complex flavor out of the jar, while veering nicely to being sweeter after cooked.
