Time for another RECIPE...this one is my DP BBQ

What can I say, I love DP ... Dr Pepper that is. When i was running my own burger place I used this BBQ sauce on a burger, served it with chicken nuggets, and used most of the same ingredients to braise pork shoulder for some great pulled pork. I love that a recipe is nothing but a LIST!! I cut this recipe in half from the batches I used to make
  1. 1/4 lb butter
  2. 2 white onions
  3. 2 large carrots
  4. 2 stocks of celery
  5. 7 garlic cloves
  6. 2 cups ketchup
  7. 3 Tablespoons tomato paste
  8. 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  9. 1/3 cup worcestershire
  10. 24 oz DP
  11. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  12. 2 teaspoons chili powder
  13. 1 teaspoon white peoper
  14. 1 teaspoon paprika
  15. 1 teaspoon cayenne
  16. 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  17. 1/4 lb butter
    Yes...again.
  18. Salt and pepper to taste.
  19. Start by rough chopping the carrots, celery, and onion. Sauté the carrots, celery, onion, garlic, in the first 1/4 lb of butter. Season with a little salt and pepper, and cook on medium heat for 10/15 min. Careful not to burn, just cook the veg down in that butter.
  20. Once the 10/15 min have passed, add all the other ingredients to your pot EXCEPT the last 1/4 lb of butter. Stir and let simmer on medium/low heat for 45 min to an hour.
  21. Once that's done, melt in the last 1/4 lb of butter. Once butter is incorporated, take pot off the heat. With an immersion blender, blend the BBQ sauce until nice and smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and enjoy.
    Seasoning may need tweaking once it's cooled if you will use it cold.
  22. Remember, this same ingredient list makes a great braising liquid for pulled pork!!
