Get ready for a real Texas barbecue sauce recipe!
Texas, a mysterious place to outsiders. Rich in history and great barbecue traditions. They say everything's bigger in Texas, and this sauce is no exception: it's big on flavor.
Now I know that some people think there's no such thing as "Texas barbecue sauce" because some barbecue joints like Kreuz Market and others have a "no sauce policy". Trust me, there's plenty of barbecue sauce in Texas and you're about to discover how to make a great one!
This recipe makes a sauce that's different than most others you may have had. This sauce has huge flavor that packs a punch. It's spicy, with a nice bit of tang from the vinegar and lemon juice.
This sauce is not really for brushing on meats at the end of your cook like most sauces, (although you can, just go easy with it) it's a sauce that you drizzle on meats before serving.

This Texas barbecue sauce goes extremely well with beef brisket. That's really what it was made for, it enhances the great, beefy flavor perfectly. It's a match made in heaven!
Some Texans like a barbecue sauce that's just meat drippings laced with cayenne, maybe a shot of lemon juice or vinegar for some zing. Sometimes beer or fresh chilies and an onion are thrown in. This is a thin sauce that resembles a barbecue mop.
