I was raised on baby back ribs and smoked brisket drenched in warm, homemade, Texas-style barbecue sauce. IMHO, it’s not a BBQ without it. It’s wet, sweet, with a hint of heat, and guaranteed to steal the spotlight at your next cookout. Add a side of grilled corn with medicated butter, and you’ve got a menu that’ll knock everyone’s socks off.
Chef’s Note: Always remember to label your medicated items clearly and keep them away from children at all times. These dishes are designed to be low-dose, but as with all edibles, start with a single serving and wait 30-60 minutes for full effects before you have a second.
Cannabis-Infused Texas-Style BBQ Sauce
Makes approximately 4 cups
- In a saucepan, heat the water, brown sugar, molasses, ketchup, and tomato sauce to a simmer. Add the onion, garlic, and celery. Simmer on low heat for 8 minutes.
- Transfer to a blender, then add all other remaining ingredients and spices. Puree until smooth. Add additional chili powder, salt, and pepper if needed.
- Use BBQ sauce to brush onto baby back ribs or warm slightly to drizzle onto the smoked brisket and grilled meats. Store sauce in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for later use.
