Hey All. I'm attempting to match a sauce which combines open pit, and some other ingredients, without using Open Pit. I believe I've gotten fairly close to the flavor however there's something missing. Its what gives open Pit its unique tangy flavor. Does anyone know what spices they taste from open pit? Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

It's got to be some form of vinegar.

I realize Open Pit is probably the butt end of jokes regarding bbq sauces, but it is what my mom always used, so I grew up with it and still like it.

It definitely has a distinctive flavor, but I have no idea what it is... What I really like to do is mix a tiny bit of A-1 into Open Pit Original.... Ain't gonna win any competitions probably, but does bring back memories of my mom grilling chicken on the grill for a Sunday afternoon summer treat!

Ahhhh, Open Pit. This brings back childhood memories for me as well. There were not very many barbeque sauces in Michigan retail stores 30 years ago but Open Pit was one of them.

Blech! Man, that stuff was wretched.

Get a wino to pee in a milk jug, add a cup of vinegar, fill the rest of the jug w/ketchup:)

I ran across this recipe but never tried it. This was posted as a close recipe to Open Pit but I never gave it a try.

This was posted by Jim AKA Midnight Plowboy

Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Ingredients:
2 cups water
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup tomato paste
1/2 cup vinegar
3 tablespoons molasses
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over high heat and whisk until
smooth.

Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 45 to 60 minutes or
until mixture is thick.

Cool, then store in a covered container in the refrigerator overnight so that
flavors can develop.


Happy New Year, Jim
