Killer Hogs BBQ’s Competition-Style BBQ Sauce Recipe

This is my recipe for my sweet and spicy barbecue sauce that I use at competition bbq cooks. Plus, it makes a great base to start your own BBQ sauce.

You can make this recipe and then add a few more ingredients to make it your own… or you can use it as-is (that’s what I do)!

Northwest Alder-Plank Grilled Salmon

Northwest Alder-Plank Grilled Salmon

Native Americans have been cooking salmon over roaring fires in the Pacific Northwest for quite some time.  The combination of fresh salmon and alder wood makes a smooth and savory taste with nuances of the forrest.  Although you could prepare whole salmon over a roaring fire like they do here in Tillicum Indian Village, using one of these alder grill planks is a much more manageable way to get the same wonderful flavor from your fish.



1 Alder grilling plank
1 Salmon fillet
½ Cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon chile powder
1 Tablespoon paprika
½ Teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ Teaspoon salt Lemon

get the grilling plank


Soak grilling plank in water for at least one hour, and up to eight hours.

Preheat grill or oven to medium-high, or 400ºF (190ºC).

Mix brown sugar, chile powder, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt together. Rub mixture on salmon.

Add to grill or oven. *When grilling salmon, keep the grill lid closed during cooking.

Cook until internal temperature of salmon reaches 145ºF (63ºC), or for about 20 minutes.

Remove from grill and serve on the plank with plenty lemon.

*Keep a spray bottle of water at hand for dousing flare-ups on the grill.

Keep your backyard barbecue, fire pit, or charcoal cooker at the temperature you desire with the BBQ Dragon!  Buy one here-

Homemade Kansas City BBQ Sauce With a Twist- You Won’t Believe What Goes Into This BBQ Sauce

People will drive long distances to get their hands on authentic Kansas City BBQ.  And for good reason!  Some of the best BBQ anywhere has been coming out of Kansas City for generations with recipes and techniques passed down thru the ages.   Meathead Goldwyn over at Amazing Ribs is a wealth of knowledge and his version of Kansas City BBQ Sauce will take the misery out of store bought BBQ sauce.

Eve’s Apple Butter Pig Paint

Eve tempted Adam with apples, and if you want a great Kansas City style BBQ sauce with a twist, use apple butter to sweeten it and people will sin to get your ribs. This sauce would have Adam eating out of Eve’s palm, and sucking on her fingers. Yes, it has lumps. Strain it if you must. I say leave ’em in.


Yield: Makes about 2 cups of sauce.
Preparation time: About 20 minutes
Keeps. Because it has a high acid and sugar content, it can keep for months in the refrigerator.

1 tablespoon of butter or margarine
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup ketchup
3/4 cup apple butter
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons steak sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 ounce unsweetened chocolate (1/2 square)
1 teaspoon ground ginger dissolved in a few teaspoons of water
1 teaspoon instant coffee
1 teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
2 teaspoons of Chipotle Tabasco sauce for mild, 4 for medium, 6 for hot

About the Tabasco. I love the Chipotle version, but feel free to use the regular Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce and the amount you like. Just go easy unless you know everybody likes the heat.

1) Melt the butter over low to medium heat.

2) Cook the onion and garlic until translucent, being careful not to brown the garlic.

3) Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer on low for ten minutes. I like to make two batches, one mild, one hot. Keep in the fridge and it will last for months.
