Doctored KC Style
Taste, taste, taste. That's the measure of what makes BBQ sauce great.
Most Kansas City styles of BBQ sauce are just a little bit too sweet for me. I prefer some spiciness to them. So, what I do, is doctor up a KC sauce.
I start with some KC Masterpiece, and add Worcestershire, Tabasco, chili powder and vinegar. That thins it down, cuts some of the sweetness, and boosts the heat.
I guess by doing that, though, it isn't really a KC style anymore. It might be closer to a St. Louis style, I guess. I'm not exactly sure of what the style is, but I like it.
Because I like it so well, it goes with almost anything. I use it as a finishing sauce on chicken, pork, seafood, steaks, and burgers.
It's also quick and easy to make. Just add the few extra ingredients, stir it up, and it's ready to go. I taste it after that to see if it needs anything else.
I think it's great! I may have changed the style, though. But that's why I call it a doctored KC style.
