Cold Smoked BBQ Sauce Recipe
  • 28 Oz can plum tomatoes with juices (or a 1-quart jar of preserved whole tomatoes)
  • 2 bunches green onions
  • 3 thick slices mozzarella cheese
  • Healthy pinch of salt
  • 5 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 10 Tbsp honey
  • Also requires:
  • Cold smoker
  • Wood (we used Alder Pellets)
  • Stainless steel bowl for smoking
  1. Light your cold smoker and allow it to build smoke while assembling ingredients.
  2. Pour tomatoes and sauce into stainless bowl. Drape with onions and rest cheese on top of that. Place in smoker and smoke for 6-8 hours.
  3. Carefully transfer ingredients into a saucepan and simmer over medium until onions are soft.
  4. Add a generous (1/2-1 tsp.) coarse salt.
  5. Blend into a sauce and return to a simmer over medium heat.
  6. As the sauce reduces, add 1 Tbsp vinegar and 2 Tbsp honey and taste. Continue to add as it reduces, tasting as you go (as described above). Your taste preference may require more or less honey/vinegar.
  7. Taste and add salt if needed.
  8. Remember - you're a rockstar!
