A truly excellent balance of bright and sweet tomato with tangy vinegar and a complex, yet harmonious mix of spices that worked both on and off the grill, makes Apple City Red a go-to choice for just about any application.

Cranberry Barbecue Sauce

Cranberry Barbecue Sauce

Thanksgiving time is upon us, and I'm in the process of plotting out my menu, making recipe swaps and adjustments to ensure this year is an improvement over the last. As I was working through this, I realized one recipe that has held strong and seen no changes over the years was my cranberry sauce—if you're not making your own, your missing out on how just a few ingredients and about 10 minutes of effort is a huge improvement over store bought. This got me thinking about what I could do different with cranberry sauce, and while I'll likely always opt for my tried and true recipe, the slight off topic thought of a cranberry barbecue sauce entered my mind and I just had to act on it.

Currywurst

While I'm starting to move into the mindset that the process of making sausages is not so arduous that it can't be done on a regular basis, the fact of the matter is it's still more time consuming than the majority of other recipes I do. So, when it does come time to work on some links, I usually make it count and do at least five pound batches, which both leaves me in a position to not have go back and remake the sausages anytime soon, but I also usually end up with more than I know what to do with. Luckily, I had a perfect use for some excess bratwurst I had on hand at the last Meatwave—serve them as currywurst!
