10 mins prep. time
50 mins cooking time
What you need:
Put some cooking oil in the bottom of a saucepan and saute the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the saucepan and drain off all of but 2 tablespoons of fat. Keep the 2 tablespoons of fat in the saucepan.
Add the virgin oil to the saucepan. Add the onion and garlic. Saute for approx. 4 minutes. Stir in the thyme and saute for an additional 2 minutes.
Add the bacon and all other ingredients.
Simmer on a lo heat for 30 to 40 minutes. If you want the BBQ sauce smoother than what is left in the pan put it in the blender and blend until you reach your desired consistency. I liked mine at the consistency in the saucepan so jarred it and stored it.
This sauce would go lovely on ribs on the BBQ. Has a nice kick to it!
