Free form BBQ

Lately I've been considering prepared bbq sauce as a starter point, so recently I used Annie's and had some very good times.

I'm fond of very complex bbq, so over the weekend I braised a small chicken, flavored with a lime cut in half inside, a little red wine and garlic, plus thyme, basil, fresh ginger and bay leaf, and then shredded it.

For the sauce I began with the basic Annie's Natural, plus a wonderful sweet chili sauce that I found in Lee's grocery. I thought a little bit of sesame oil might add a certain something, so I put in a few drops. Finally I added a half teaspoon of chili garlic sauce for some high-note type zing. I simmered everything together until the sauce was sufficiently infused.

Spicy, tender and juicy.
