MMMMM…sweeeet, — uh, suuu-eeeeee?


(Picture not related to story, but we thought it was cool – this is Wilber, the mascot of Dave’s Brick Barbeque Pit of Lexington, NC)

The Charlotte Observer, ever-present, and ever thought provoking, offers up a story about the Cheerwine Championship Cooking team.

 And, we like the results:

Championship Cheerwine Barbecue Sauce

Mix the following in a large pot over high heat:

• One 12-ounce can of Cheerwine

• 5 ounces molasses

• 6 ounces brown sugar

• 10 ounces your favorite brand barbecue sauce

• 2 ounces white distilled vinegar

• 1/4 teaspoon white pepper

• 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

• 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

• 1 ounce liquid smoke

Bring to boil while stirring. Cool, pour in container and refrigerate. Makes approximately 32 ounces of sauce. Good with pork, chicken or beef.
