We make the sauce to coat our Smoked Strawberry Barbecue Wings, which you can find detailed instructions for here.

I enjoy making homemade barbecue sauce and we have several recipes on the blog, but sometimes it’s just easier to buy a bottle.

Our favorite store-bought barbecue sauce is a local Texas favorite called Stubb’s, made in Austin, Texas. This is available throughout the southwest or can be purchased on Amazon right here. They have many versions but I prefer “sweet heat’ or “original” for this recipe.

For the strawberry jam, any jar will work! I combine the jam and barbecue sauce in a bowl and whisk well. If the jam has been refrigerated it might require 30 sec in the microwave to smooth it out and melt it in the barbecue sauce.

Season to taste with a little garlic powder and salt and you are ready to go!

I have looked for a recipe similar to Red Rock Canyon's poblano peppers for 10 yrs now, ever since I moved up to Alaska. Thank you, thank you and THANK YOU!!!! You don't happen to have a Willie C's Cafe's-" Wonder down under" recipe floating about? I have been looking for that one even longer. Once again thank you so much.

I use 1 dram. If I were you I would buy 2 drams, use 1 and then add to taste if you need more. You should be able to just stir more in if you need more flavor.
