Sauce = BBQ + Stout + Smoke

"For this sauce, I used Yard's "Love Stout" and apply a little smoke to it. Yard's is one of Philly's best local breweries. Of course you can use whatever is best in your area." - Corey

Yields About 1 gallon

What You Need:
vegetable oil, 1 cup
onions, finely diced, 1 lb.
garlic, minced, 4 Tbs.
dry mustard, 4 Tbs.
dark chili powder, 4 oz.
cumin, 8 Tbspn.
coriander, ground, 8 Tbs.
Mexican Oregano, 4 Tbs.
chipotles in adobo, 8 each
plum tomatoes, chopped, 6 lbs.
ketchup, 1 1/4 quart
stout beer, smoked, 2 cups
sorghum molasses, 1 1/2 cups
sherry vinegar, 4 fl. Oz.
worcestershire sauce, 4 fl. Oz.

How You Make It: 
1. Over medium heat, cook the onions and garlic in the vegetable oil until they become aromatic and translucent.
2. Add the spices and continue to heat for about 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the spices.
