Mr. Jack's BBQ Sauce
A traditional Ugly Family recipe


The sauce recipe used by Jacques Cyr "Mr. Jack" Villien for his famous sheep roasts. This is an old fashioned, tart and pinkish colored sauce. It is not as tomato heavy as is the current style for BBQ sauce.


 Amount  Ingredient  Preparation Method
1 onion chopped fine
3 sticks celery chopped fine
a few cloves garlic chopped fine
  some vegetable oil  
 1 bottle (14oz) Kraft BBQ sauce or ketchup  
1 TBS brown sugar  
1 TBS yellow mustard  
1 large lemon   juice from 1 large or 2 small
to taste cider vinegar  
to taste red & black pepper  
The barbecue sauce goes something like this:
sauté an onion, 3 sticks of celery and a few cloves of garlic (all finely chopped), in a moderate amount of oil.  When they are done, add a bottle of Kraft barbecue sauce, or ketchup.  Add about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar,  1 tablespoon yellow mustard, juice of 1 large or 2 small lemons, cider vinegar, red & black pepper to taste (adding more sugar if it is too sour).  Simmer slowly about 1/2 hour.


Baste meat often with this sauce.
