Faux Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce
By Dutch Reyveld Dutchr
I was recently asked by someone if I had a recipe for a clone of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. He was unable to find it locally.
I haven't made/tried it, but it looks like it might be close. Not sure if it'll give the same dark color as the original.
Also included here is a Rub recipe this is supposed to be secret...Hmmmmm? Haven't made it either, but ingredients look right.
**If you are going to use this on ribs, chicken, pork, etc. try seasoning the meat with the actual dry rub before cooking then slather on the sauce.

Dutch, Add a little "Gravy Master" or "Kitchen Bouquet" to your BBQ sauce to darken. It wont affect the taste that much 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon will darken your quantity of sauce. I use it for my sauces and also darken spaghetti sauce at times with it. These two items will also put a nice char on a grilled steal due to the sugar content in them. Happy Cooking, Gary

Hey, I have an original recipe for Sweet Baby Rays hand written. While a few of your ingredients are in the recipe, you are missing several key ingredients. Too bad I am sworn to secrecy!!

That's a good idea, Gary...Thanx!
Lori, I CAN get real Sweet Baby Rays...Just posted this for those that can't...As I SAID, I haven't made/tried it.
If everyone was sworn to secrecy, HOW would we get ANY proprietary recipes, either commercial copies or family hand-downs???

I tried Sweet Baby Ray's yesterday on my ribs for the first time. Love it and it tastes a lot like our Gates BBQ sauce.
I agree with you Dutch on the sworn to secrecy on recipes!

Lori, I guess that is why you have not posted any recipes. Great recipe Dutch.
