Gene's Barbecue Sauce

Gene Forsythe from Muldoon is a regular at the Czhilispiel in Flatonia. When he’s not making chili, he’s making barbecue. “The most important thing after the meat is the sauce,” swears Gene. The chef says the secret to this recipe is the dry mustard.

3 tablespoons dry mustard
1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 2 tablespoons margarine or butter, melted
2 cups catsup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup liquid smoke
1/2 cup Worcestershire or soy sauce
6 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
4 teaspoons celery seed
1 small onion, diced

In a saucepan, combine dry mustard and 1/2 cup melted butter. Stir in remaining ingredients except onion and begin simmering. In a sauté pan, sauté onion in remaining 2 tablespoons butter until translucent. Add onion to sauce and simmer for 30 minutes.

Makes 2 to 3 pints
