Big Poppa's Blood Orange BBQ Sauce


4 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1 10oz. jar TABASCO® Spicy Pepper Jelly
2 1/2 cups ketchup
1 cup fresh blood orange juice (If not available, regular oranges can be a substitute)
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1/2 cup clover honey
2 tablespoons orange marmalade
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons sea salt
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon medium ground black pepper


In a stock pot, mix all ingredients and heat over high. Whisk and bring to nearly boiling. Take care to not let the sugars burn.

Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally until desired thickness.

Use sauce to baste selected meat at the end of its cooking process and return to grill or oven for 5 minutes to set the sauce.
