Anybody who’s ever been to a bar (or frat party) knows that Rum and Coke go together like milk and cookies. But, who knew that Rum and Root Beer could team up for a phenomenal barbeque sauce? Well, oh my, do they! Although this was developed specifically to go with my BBQ Rub-a-dub and Dutch Oven R&R Pulled Pork, it really stands up incredibly well on it’s own! Ribs, chicken, tri-tip … you name it. This sauce will make your taste-buds do a victory dance!

INGREDIENTS

2 Cups Root Beer
2 Cups Ketchup
2 Shots (3 Ounces) Dark Rum
1/4 Cup Molasses
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
2 TBSP BBQ Rub-a-dub (or the smokey rub of your choice)
1 Tsp Red Crushed Pepper
1/2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/2 Tsp Sea or Kosher Salt

RECIPE

In a medium-large saucepan, combine all ingredients.

Continue to stir occasionally until just before sauce begins to boil. Reduce heat to low and continue to simmer uncovered for 2 hours. Be sure to continue stirring every 10-15 minutes.

When done, remove from heat for 15 minutes. Then serve, use to baste, or cover and refrigerate. Will last up to three weeks … but, probably not! 😉
