Roasted Apple BBQ Sauce

There are many BBQ sauces available on the market today representing many flavors with influences from around the world.  The easiest thing to do is go out and get a bottle from your supermarket and splash it all over your food and voila....done!   In reality,. we don't know what chemicals we are ingesting from all these products.
The truth is, making your own sauce is almost as easy as buying a bottle.  This recipe is an example of a home made sauce that is not only easy to make but is a little different from the what you usually purchase.
Great for chicken, ribs and large slow cooked cuts like flank steak or brisket this sweet sauce has a little kick of heat in the end and will leave you licking your fingers clean.

Ingredients

2 apples ( I used Jazz apples , feel free to substitute)
2 tbsp. canola oil
1/2 onion diced
2 Tbsp brown sugar
3 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbsp honey dijon mustard
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tsp. cayenne pepper or your favorite hot sauce ( more can be added to your taste)
1 tsp. roasted garlic
salt and pepper
4Tbsp. water
Chop and peel apple, coat with canola oil and place in a 400* oven for 1 hour.
Once brown and caramelized remove from oven and place on stove top.
On medium heat add onions and saute with apples for 2 minutes then add remaining ingredients except water.
Cook for 10 minutes stirring often.
Let cool then place in a blender or food processor , add water and puree until fairly smooth.
 Simply grill your meat with a little salt and pepper then slather the sauce on it, basting until meat is cooked and sauce is wonderfully caramelized.
I have tested this sauce on various cuts of meat and chicken and it is a REAL crowd pleaser! Enjoy the taste of championship BBQ in your own backyard without nasty chemicals and preservatives! ENJOY!

Can be refrigerated for 2 weeks.

I saw your post Roasted Apple BBQ Sauce and I think it looks AWESOME.I can’t wait to try it as I am a huge foodie. I own http://hotsauceplanet.com/ and sell all sorts of hot sauces, BBQ Sauces, etc. If you want to link to our hot sauces or BBQ sauces for your recipe that would be great.

Found this after we bought an overpriced roasted apple bbq sauce from a well known brand, but damn it was good! Roasting the apples right now and can't wait to see how this tastes!
