Texas Best BBQ sauce (yet another revision!) I have almost achieved it - the replication of the best commercial BBQ sauce ever made! The color is right on; The consistency is almost right on; The taste is almost right on. The sauce, resulting from my recipe, has a bit more tang to it than the original, but the taste is getting very, very close. 3 1/2 oz. tomato paste 10 oz. water 1 1/4 Tsp dry mustard 1 Tsp Worchestershire sauce 1 Tsp dried thyme 1 clove garlic, pulverized into a paste 2 - 3 Tbl fresh onion, grated finely 1/2 Tsp chile d'arbol pods, de-seeded and ground 1/4 Tsp ground cumin 1 Tbl lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1 Tbl white vinegar 1 Tbl dark molasses 1 Tsp liquid smoke salt to taste pepper to taste Combine the above ingredients into a small, non-reactive sauce pan. Bring the contents of the pan to a boil, cut the flame to the lowest setting, and simmer until the sauce is thick. Stir the pan frequently.
