From all of us at Cornaby’s to all of you Happy Memorial Day. We take some time today to remember those who have sacrificed for the freedoms we love, and also to remember those who are gone that we miss so much. Our patriarch and company inspiration Reed Cornaby passed away last year and while he is gone his influence will always be part of our farming and business practices. Please take some time to remember those close to you and share some stories today!
Now, today also tends to make the beginning of grilling season and if there are burgers or steaks in your future that means a great bbq or finishing sauce is always welcome. The Cornaby’s Spicy sauces (Raspberry Jalapeno, Raspberry Chipotle and Peach Habenero) are fantastic for this and require no more preparation than opening the bottle. I spread Cornaby’s Raspberry Jalapeno sauce on some pork ribs (cooked the ribs, spread with sauce and grilled for just another couple minutes to caramelize it) and it was freaking amazing!
But if you want a more traditional BBQ sauce here’s a recipe using Ultra Gel. This is what you’d term a Memphis style sauce with a catsup base. I like Ultra Gel in bbq sauce because it helps the sauce stay thick and adhere to the meat and it’s always sad when you have a great cut of meat and the saucy goodness stays at the bottom of the plate! If you want something a little lighter make up this bbq sauce and then combine half sauce and half mayo or Miracle whip and use it as a spread for sandwiches, burgers or wraps.
