Berry-Blues Barbecue Sauce

Berry BluesThis is a sweet & spicy barbecue sauce that does well with most barbecued meats, including some fish.  However if you are using this for my 2-2-1 Smoked Baby Back Ribs, I suggest that you leave the smoked chipotles out, since the dry rub on the ribs are already spicy enough.




Batch: 1.5 c


  • 2 tsp Hazelnut Oil
  • ¼ c Onion, minced
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • ¼ c Caveman Ketchup
  • ¼ c Balsamic Vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 3 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 c Blueberries
  • Sea Salt & Pepper to taste


  • 4 tbsp Smoked Chipotle in Adobo sauce (the spicy part)


  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan.
  2. Add the onion over moderate heat, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
  4. Add the ketchup, vinegar, syrup, smoked chipotle (optional) and mustard.
  5. Bring to a simmer.
  6. Add the blueberries and simmer over low heat, stirring until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  7. Mash with a potato masher, then season with salt and pepper.

Serve at room temperature.
