Premium gourmet spice online supplier Guntersville, Alabama: A rundown of the major styles of BBQ and regional sauces and what they are good for. From coast to coast, the flavors represent a touch of the regions in which they grew up in and range from vinegar based to rich and thick molasses based sauces. I love being asked what my style of BBQ is, for a couple reasons. I find it an opportunity to gauge how much that person really understands styles, and why it matters (or doesn’t). To be candid, if I had to pick a style that most matched my cooking, it is likely Alabama. First I love pork. Second, I like vinegar in my sauces. So between the two, it naturally lands me in the style of “Alabama BBQ.” That said, I think it’s important to express local in any style. Local meat, local flavor and local wood.

Not quite sure if your dining companions can take the heat? This homemade BBQ rub recipe features mainly warm and smoky spices, including cumin and paprika. A pinch of cayenne and spoonful of ground pasilla or ancho pepper add just enough spice to balance the brown sugar. If your go-to sauce features mustard (dry, Dijon, or yellow), then you need this homemade BBQ rub recipe in your back pocket (and literally, in your spice cabinet). A teaspoon of dry mustard goes a long way in this onion powder- and chili powder-based blend.
Maple syrup tip of the day: Maple syrup is traditionally made in a building called a “sugarhouse” — the name of the building comes from the time when most sap was actually turned into sugar. Sugarhouses vary in size and shape, each with its own character. Some may be rustic wood buildings out in the woods with poor access and no electricity, full of old tools and memories of grandfather’s sugar seasons of the past. Still others might remind you of a modern food processing plant, brightly lit and streamlined. Each sugarhouse will have vent at the top, a cupola, which is opened to allow the steam of the boiling syrup to escape the building. All throughout the maple producing regions, steam rising from the cupola is a signal that maple syrup season is under way.
All balsamic vinegar is derived from a thousand year old process developed around the area of Modena and Reggio Emilia in Italy, which is why we will start our deep dive into balsamic here. As mentioned, traditional balsamic vinegar (a.k.a. “aceto balsamico tradizionale”) is made from “grape must” which is the juice from freshly pressed grapes. Grape must is the only ingredient in traditional balsamic vinegar. To conform with European Union standards, the grapes are required to be grown in the Modena and Reggio Emilia regions and are usually white Trebbiano and Lambrusco varieties. The grape must is boiled in huge cauldrons outdoors over open flame to reduce its volume and concentrate its sugars, and then it ferments and acidifies over time in wooden barrels.
Brisket Directions: Rinse the brisket with cold water then pat it dry with paper towels. Pour a small amount olive oil over the brisket and gently spread it around. Using a fair amount of tnriveroliveoilco.com’s Black Label, massage it into the brisket. Repeat this until the whole brisket is generously seasoned. Cover or wrap for 2 – 4 hours (overnight is best). Never let meat stay at room temperature for more than 1 hour. When ready to cook, place drip pan under the grill rack. Fill drip pan with 1 part Beer to 1 part apple juice. Heat grill to 225° putting the room temperature brisket on the grill. In a medium skillet place cube of butter and 2 tablespoons of tnriveroliveoilco.com’s Black Label, when melted add the onions and “sweat” them until soft and translucent. Take the onions out and set aside. Add to the butter mixture, one bottle BBQ sauce, ¼ cup apple juice and one cup of Beef Stock. Mix well.
Tri-Tip Roasting Directions: Rub the Tri-Tip with olive oil and then the dry rub. Using an injector, inject the tri-tip in at least four spots with the butter/garlic sauce. Plus each hole with a small garlic clove then with the chile (optional). Let the tri-tip stand for at least an hour (2 hours preferred). Light your grill/smoker. If using a gas grill, set on low to medium flame. If using a smoker or charcoal grill, have your temperature set at approximately 325 to 350 degrees. Place your choice of wood onto the coals, set your rack on the highest level possible, and place your tri-tip on the rack fat side down. Slow roast/smoke the tri-tip for 20-30 minutes or until desired doneness, not turning it for the whole time it is being roasted/smoked. Remove the tri-tip and let rest at least for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
When you shop for balsamic vinegar, whether in grocery stores or online, you will find a variety of products: Balsamic Vinegar (no mention of Modena on the label) – Balsamic vinegar for everyday use that may or may not come from Italy. If it doesn’t have the PGI label, it may still come from Italy and it may be labeled “Balsamic Condiment”. It may be good quality or it be imitation balsamic, which is just vinegar (no grape must) with added thickeners and sweeteners.
