I tried the apple city bbq sauce. it taste like puke. it was my first go at trying to make some sauce. do you think it was the mix of all the vinegar and apple that gave it that puke taste?

Laughing Laughing Laughing LMAO!!!

A few questions first. What kind of bacon bits did you use. Was it bacon you cooked and then ground or was it store bought?

Was the onion kinda strong?


If the bacon was store bought and/or the onion was strong things can go south quickly.

Also........not a big fan of garlic powder at all. That stuff can seriously screw up a sauce in my book.


Oh....and hopefully you didn't use Hunts ketchup over heinz. That's reason to fight 'round these parts. Laughing Wink







......to be quite honest with you. I'm not a big fan of that sauce at all. It's just too busy as far as what it's trying to be IMO.

Make your own bacon and use Heinz. The store bought bacon bits smell bad to me right off the bat.

Also, once it's cooked on as dustaway says it will taste much different.


Give'er another shot. Although I still say there's better things to try. Very Happy

I have also cooked his sauce and it was okay, i have also watched him on 2 different t.v programs and the sauce he is using is a total different color the sauce in the book is red and the sauce on t.v appears to be light yellow. He talks in the book about cooks not being totally truthful about their recipies ? I aint saying i am just saying.

Who knows. I've seen that same thing with other recipes, in person their version isn't the same.

Most people don't know, Mike's Daughter wrote the book with input from Mike, so maybe she changed the ingredients during the edit... LOL

I have used this same sauce cooked to the letter and feed some 80+ people and it was a hit. Try a small batch and make it with fresh bacon. I love this book, but peoples taste vary, they are tons of other sauces in there you might rather spend your time on.. Good Luck

well at his restaurant yes the sauce does have a yellower color than the one that the recipe in the book makes. something to consider tho is that he made that sauce to work in conjunction with his rub so maybe try them together and see what the result is. mike thinks of bbq as everything comign together the meat the sauce the smoke the rub so its possible that just one of parts of the puzzle (the sauce) may not taste that well on its own...

also does anyone have any thoughts or ideas what the new red sweet st louis style sauce that he has beens serving at 17th street is? it is def a nice change of pace from the recipe that you guys are talking about

I had a chance to taset the bottled version of the 17th Street sauce and it isn't even close to the recipe in the book.

That being said I have placed 1st patio porker section at the 2008 VA state championship and 4th out of 39 at Charlotte Blues Brews BBQ using this sauce with ribs.

I always use freshly cooked bacon (Gwaltney Applewood Smoked or Gwaltney thick cut) and take my time getting it and the apples and onions chopped very fine with a chefs nice. I also use a sweet/tart variety of apple, Pink Lady is my 1st choice Gala 2nd.

I made a double batch once and used soy and it was too salty.

I had a MBN judge tell me it was a good sauce, that it would compliment rather than overpower a rib.

I have made this sauce three times and it has aways come out rather good.
I use real bacon and Hunts (sorry) the last time I made it I put a little honey in it to see if I could smooth out the tartness from all that vingar.
Seem to work out purty good, so I made a note of it.

Well I just want to stick my 2 cents in, and there you have it! Laughing

I had a chnace to talk with Myron Mixon about the sauce that Mills attributes to Myron in the book. Myron says that isn't anything near his sauce. In fact, he said there is no way he would have simply given his sauce away because he would like to publish a book himself one day. FWIW.

I made this sauce but skipped the bacon (because I wasn't sure if they meant baco bits or real bacon). The smell isn't the best in the world, but once it is applied it is excellent.

Also I used it in conjunction with magic dust.

The real sauce in the restaurant: Sublime.
The sauce in the book: Horrible, in my opinion.
I agree, it tastes like puke to me. I almost didn't go to his restaurant because of how bad the book sauce was. The Magic dust in the book isn't even close to the real stuff either. Man the stuff in his restaurant is good though Very Happy
