Kansas City Style Home Made BBQ Sauce....I use this Sauce on a lot of different things I Bbq like Chicken and Ribs and some time in my Spicy Meatballs. Try it out, I know you will like it to.
Ingredients needed:2 Tbsp Oil, 1 Cup Chopped Sweet Onion, 2 Garlic Cloves, minced, 1 Cup Tomato Sauce, 1/2 Cup Vinegar, 1/2 Cup Ketchup, 3 Tbsp Dark Brown Sugar, 3 Tbsp Molasses, 3 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce, 2 Tbsp Tomato Paste, 1 Tbsp Yellow Mustard, 1 Tbsp Garlic Powder Kosher Salt to taste, 2 Tbsp Liquid Smoke.
In a medium size pot, add the oil to the pot and heat on medium high, once oil is hot, add the onion and let them sauté for about 4 to 5 minutes. Then add the minced Garlic and reduce heat to medium low, let Onions and Garlic slimmer for another 4 to 5 minutes while stirring a few times while it slimmer. Now add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Let sauce continue to slimmer another 12 to 15 minutes while constantly stirring. Turn off stove and let sauce cool before using. Sauce will slightly thicken during cooling down time. Use whatever amount you need and if any is left, place it in an air tight bottle or jar and store in your frig until ready to use again. You can store this sauce up to 3 months.

Let's get started with boiling the eggs. In a medium pot, fill halfway with water and add 2 Tsp of Salt to it. Gently place the eggs in the cold water and boil on medium high heat for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove pot from heat and let set for 5 minutes before you remove from the hot water, pour out the hot water and run cold water over the Eggs to stop the cooking process.
Making the Sausage Mixture:
In a medium size mixing bowl add the sausage, Honey, and 2 tsp of the Bbq Rub in the bowl. Mix together and place in side the frig for about 30 minutes to chill.
While the Sausage mix is chilling, remove the Eggs Shells from the eggs. Take the plastic wrap and tear off 4 nice size pieces to wrap the egg and sausage mix to form a ball.
Remove the sausage mix from the frig, spread out a sheet of the plastic wrap. Take one hand full of the sausage mix and place in the center of the plastic wrap. Spread the mix out evenly, place one of the boil egg in the center of the mix and fold the plastic wrap around it molding the mix until it has completely cover the egg. Lightly seasoned on both side with a little Bbq Rub. Repeat the same steps for the remaining eggs.
***You can also mold the sausage mix around the eggs by using your hands. This can be done over night and place in the frig till morning or cook now.

People ask me all the time, JW where do you get your Brisket from.
Let me just start by saying, its not as important as to where but more of what type of Brisket i generally use.
When i am looking for a Brisket to do a Competition in go for a nice high end type Brisket with a nice marbling such as a Certified Angus Beef Brisket. my second choice would be a Prime Brisket or Choice Brisket.
The top Brisket on the market is a Waygu Brisket but it can be very expensive.
There's other Briskets that you can also buy like Excel and Select Brisket. These are the lower quality end Brisket that requires a little attention but can also turn out to be a very nice Brisket.
