    Chef Juke's Raspberry-Chipotle BBQ

    Hi Y'all-

    In case you're tired of red pepper/vinegar or sauces that smek like fancy ketchup, I present the one the only the legendary:

    Chef Juke's Raspberry-Chipotle Barbecue Sauce

    6 Tbls. packed dark brown sugar
    1/2 cup cider vinegar (i vote for brown over white!)
    1/4 cup molasses (or so)
    ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce(i'd double this)
    2 Tbls dark rum (at least!)
    2 Tbls yellow mustard (i like more)
    1 Tbls pure chili powder (i'd omit this-the chipotles are hot enough)
    2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
    2 tsp. garlic powder
    1 tsp. ground allspice
    1/4 tsp. ground cloves
    1/4 cup Chipotles en Adobo(slurried up good in a food procesor)
    2 cups ketchup
    2 cups Raspberry Preserves(seedless Smuckers is what I use)
    Kosher or sea salt

    In large saucepan, combine sugar, vinegar, molasses, Worcestershire, rum, mustard, chili powder, pepper, garlic powder, allspice and cloves. Bring to simmer over medium heat. Cook, uncovered, until all ingredients are dissolved, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. Stir in ketchup and bring to boil, stirring constantly. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    Reduce heat slightly, add raspberry jam and 1/4 cup chipotles** and gently simmer sauce, uncovered, until dark & thick, about 30 minutes, stirring often. Use right away or transfer to jars, cover, cool to room temperature and refrigerate. Sauce will keep several months. Makes 5 cups or 20 servings.

    **Add the chipotle peppers to taste. Since simmering will bring out the heat in the peppers start by adding ¼ cup of chipotles and cook for the 30 minutes THEN taste again and add additional peppers if you like it REALLY HOT.

    You can drink shots of this stuff!
