Hack’s BBQ Sauce Recipes


Hack's BBQ Sauce

Close-Up of Hack's BBQ sauce, rich and thick and delicious

Hack’s BBQ Sauce is a great BBQ Sauce for those who cannot tolerate the onions and peppers and delightful for those who just love BBQ. Hack’s is a thick and rich, tomato based, specialty sauce made by Stephen Dodd. Stephen created Hack’s BBQ Sauce in 1999 with the goal to eliminate onions and peppers from her diet for medical reasons. Hack’s BBQ Sauce has been enjoyed by family and friends for over 10 years and now we make it available to you!

We want to thank the folks over at Hack’s BBQ Sauce for allowing us to reprint their recipes.

Beer and black pepper holiday brisket

Grilling and Cooking are among some of Elizabeth Karmel’s specialties and she has been kind enough to share with us the recipe from one of her holiday favorites, Beer and black pepper holiday brisket. We get so many requests for brisket, especially on the BBQ, but this is one great recipe for the oven, it can of course be done on a grill. For more incredible recipes from Elizabeth, check out her site Girls At The Grill at  for more great tips and tricks. Her secret to a tasty brisket is “untrimmed” and believe me, you only need to eat a dry brisket once to learn that lesson! We speak from experience. Thank you Elizabeth for this great brisket recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 9- to 11-pound whole beef brisket, untrimmed
  • Four to six 12-ounce bottles beer

Start to finish: 4 to 6 hours (depending on thickness), 10 minutes active


Directions:

1. Heat the oven to 325 F. Set a metal rack over a rimmed baking sheet.

2. To prepare the rub, in a small bowl mix the salt, pepper and cayenne. Sprinkle the mixture over all sides of the brisket.

3. Pour 1 beer into a loaf pan and set on the oven’s bottom rack.

4. Place the brisket, fat side up, on the prepared rack. Roast on the oven’s center rack for 4 to 6 hours, adding an additional beer to the loaf pan every hour. Cook until the meat reaches 185 F at the center. Remove the brisket from the oven and let rest at least 20 minutes. Thinly slice to serve.

Cooking notes:

The brisket also can also be made the day before, then reheated on the same rack and sheet pan system, covered loosely with foil for a couple of hours at 250 F. Remember to let the meat rest again before slicing.

And when slicing, be aware that the grain of the brisket changes. Look at the grain of the meat and make sure to slice against it. If the slices look like a small honeycomb pattern, you are slicing it correctly. If it looks like long strings, it is incorrect.

Rooftop BBQ Recipe – Rooftop Tri-Tip

Rooftop BBQ Contains no HFCS and Tastes Great!

We are very excited to add yet another great BBQ Sauce from the great state of California to the BBQ Pro Shop. Rooftop BBQ Competition Style Sauce is now available at a special price of $7.49 for a 20 Oz bottle of sauce. It is imported all the way from California and contains All Natural ingredients. It adds yet another HFCS Free BBQ Sauce to our line up.  As a way to get people even more excited we were given permission by Andy Allen to print their recipe for Tri-Tip. When properly smoked and then grilled, it is every bit as good as a fine filet with a ton of flavor!

We would suggest either the Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria Rub or The Rub Co. Santa Maria as a rub for this if you want to mix things up a little bit! We hope to have the Rooftop BBQ Rubs in the BBQ Pro Shop very soon!

 

Rooftop Tri- Tip

To make the Tri-tip Marinade you’ll need

(Per tri-tip)

1/4 cup Oakridge BBQ Santa Maria Rub or The Rub Co. Santa Maria

1/4 cup water

1/4 olive oil

2 teaspoons of white wine vinegar

Mix well (yes its that simple)

To cook the tri-tip  you’ll need

A good cut of tri-tip

Smoker or grill (if smoker is unavailable)

A good temp probe check out the CDN DSP-1 Dual Sensing Probe Thermometer

How to cook

  1. Take out your tri-tip out and trim most of the fat cap off (some places remove this before buying).
  2. Add your tri-tip and marinade to a zip lock bag and let it rest in your refrigerator for 2 hours.
  3. When cooking on a smoker find a good quality rich wood like hickory, pecan or the california favorite red oak. Check out Fruita wood chunks to get the best quality wood.
  4. Get your smoker or grill(with one side of burners lit) up to about 240-255 degrees and put your tri-tip on over indirect heat.
  5. Cook for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until the internal temp hits 130.
  6. At this point remove  your tri tip and place over high heat on a grill (this called reverse searing, its the best way to do a tri-tip).
  7. Sear all sides of the tri-tip until the internal temp hits 140-145.
  8. Take off and let rest 10 min before cutting against the grain.
