Memphis Barbecue Sauce Takes Center Stage

Memphis bbq sauce
Memphis BBQ Sauce 


Over the last few years Memphis Styled Barbecue Sauces have reached new heights. Our Memphis Barbecue Sauce for baby back ribs is the culmination of many months of travel and constant focus.   Living in California we knew that it was difficult to get a traditional Memphis barbecue sauce in our state.  So, after weeks of planning we set out to create a true Memphis inspired Barbecue Sauce.  We traveled, stop and talked with the brothers in the professional trade and along the we learned what truly makes a Memphis Barbecue Sauce great.  Memphis barbecue sauces are great not so much for their ingredients but for their single minded focus on creating a truly great experience for their customers.  We can all get just about the same ingredients but what we can't all get is the secret bits and pieces that the most inspired creators have come up with.  Well folks we are here to tell you that we have cracked the code.  Through our association with Memphis pitmasters and sauce creators we have confirmed what is the traditional Memphis BBQ Sauce for sale for baby back ribs.  While we'll keep the secret ingredients to ourselves what we will do is offer the best, authentic, inspired Memphis Style Barbecue Sauce for baby back ribs West of Colorado.  Although you may not be able to go to Memphis In May each year you can have our outstanding, inspired, traditional Memphis Style Barbecue Sauce.  The barbecue sauce is sweet and tart with subtle hints of celery seed, garlic, mustard, molasses and more. When you pair it with baby back ribs you get hints of Old Memphis combined with sparks of pepper and touches of molasses.

Memphis is known for the great notables who lived and traveled through its great land.  And while they focused on music and perspectives close to each of them there was always one prime uniter...food.  Memphis BBQ has a long and storied history that dates way back to the 1800s with its keen eye focus on driving the Southern style of living and lifestyle forward through it culture and its people.  Our Memphis BBQ Sauce captures the essence of true Memphis BBQ Sauce.  A sauce that is a hint spicy, a hint sweet and of course a great deal flavorful.  Pour our Memphis on Brisket or Pulled Pork or lather it on BBQ Ribs and chicken.  This is a sauce that marinates and reaches deep down into the meat to deliver flavor and taste.  Put just a bit on sandwiches or burgers.  Add it to chili or just plain hold it over for dips.  Keep it on the table for the all to enjoy.

We've experimented in many different ways with this wonderful Memphis Barbecue Sauce. We found that the sauce is excellent on ribs and really stays on the meat working to get deep down into the muscle fibers. The Memphis barbecue sauce never disappoints and always delivers rich smooth flavor to every item we've ever tried. A few weeks ago we decided to give sweet potato fries a try. We used the double fry method. But before we get into the double fry method, our friends practically swear by the standard fry method. That method involves slicing the Sweet potatoes into thin long slices. They hand wash the slices then place them in a large bowl to which they add cold water. The fries are allowed to rest in the water for about 30 minutes. Following the cold water bath they dry the fries completely on paper towels. The fries are then placed on a cooking sheet and baked in the oven for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Once done the fries are removed and oil is then allowed to reach a temperature of 350 degrees to which the fries are then placed. The fries are then cooked for about 6 minutes due to their softness after coming out of the oven. Once out of the fryer the fries are allowed to drain for about 2 minutes then they go directly to the Memphis Barbecue sauce. They actually reserve half of the fries coating them in the Santa Barbara Smoked Rub then join those with the other half for the barbecue sauce. They enjoy the somewhat cleaner cooking process although they still use the oil to finish the fries. I found the fries to be very crispy but still prefer my double fry method.

In the Double Fry method First we slice the sweet potatoes then we wash them thoroughly. We put the sweet potato slices into a water bath and placed them into our fridge for about 5 hours. The water helped stabilize the fries and remove any starchiness that might remain if not cooked properly. Second we used about 1-1/2 quarts of clean cooking oil. We used vegetable although many have said that peanut oil is cleaner and delivers a better flavor to the fries. We brought the oil up to 360 degrees making sure to have a lot of air movement to draw off any smoke so we turned our fans up to high and opened out doors. We also drained the fries while the oil was warming. You can do this by placing a couple of paper towels in the bottom of a large bowl. When you think you've removed most of the water by hand wringing simply toss the fries into the bowl on top of the paper towels. Shake the bowl from side to side which allow them to turn and dry within the container. Now with the washing done and the oil ready we moved to step three.

Step three we slow place the dried sweet potato slices into the hot oil and allow them to fry for about 4 minutes. After 4 minutes we remove the fries and place them on a rack so that excess oil will drip off. We them allow the oil to rise back up to temperature. This time we will allow the oil to rise to 400 degrees. Once the temperature is reached we take the fries and place them back into the oil. We cook the fries and additional 6 - 8 minutes. This will allow the fries to cook thoroughly and to crisp nicely in the oil. After frying we remove the fries and place them back on the drainage rack. We let the excess oil drip off for about 2 minutes them we sprinkle with Jake's Famous Santa Barbara Smoke Rub. At this point we filled a small bowl with Jake's Famous Memphis Barbecue Sauce then we set that next to the fries as a dipping sauce. We love the tanginess of the Memphis Barbecue sauce paired against the Santa Barbara Smoked Rub and the subtle sweetness of the Sweet Potato Fries....Excellent.

It’s wonderfully rich, and full of flavor with just the right balance of vinegar, molasses, mustard, garlic, onion and more. I use it on pork ribs, chicken and steaks. Great Job Jake."

Are you ready to break from the monotony of bad sauces and try something truly great?

The long and short of this conversation is what kind of steak are you going to cook and how do you want it to turn out. The best steaks are planned especially where the cooking/grilling process is concerned. The best marinating bbq sauces have a decent level of vinegar and mustard to break down muscle fiber. Most chefs and grill masters typically don't marinate steaks in bbq sauce but actually prefer salt and pepper shaken onto the steak about 5 minutes before grilling.

Here's a quick way how to make ribs using our Memphis Barbecue Sauce

1. Clean ribs and remove the white membrane from the back of the ribs. Tip: Use a paper towel to grip the edge of the membrane and remove with a slow steady force.
2. Season the ribs generously with the seasoning.
3. Wrap the ribs and let rest in your refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours and not more than 8 hours.
4. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees.
5. Place a layer of foil in the baking pan to catch juices from the meat.
6. Remove the ribs from the wrapping and place on the layer of foil.
7. Add the cup of Orange Juice to the bottom of the pan under the ribs.
8. Seal the ribs in the pan so that the meat will braise in the liquid.
9. Cook in the pan for 2 hours.
10. Collect the liquid from the ribs into a cooking pot.

Steak Marinade Recipe - Jake's Famous Foods

Steak Marinade
Steak Marinade Recipe


Steak is and has been a key ingredient in popular barbecues.  We've collected our best Steak Marinade recipes along with a video to help you better perform when it comes time to make your favorite steak.   Steaks can exist in many forms, ribeye, porterhouse, New York, Sirloin, Filet Mignon and more.  Whether your steak exists in one of the buttery smooth forms or the more common almost shoe leather forms our steak marinades will help you improve the texture (softness) and flavor of your steak.  Let's get started with some basic but very tasty recipes.  

This Marinated Steak Tip recipe is delicious with the subtle flavor of bourbon marinated throughout the steak tips. 

Recipe: Bourbon Steak Marinade:

Ingredients:
  • 1-1/2-2 pounds of sirloin, rib eye or flank steak trimmed of excess fat
  • 1/4 cup of either bourbon (inexpensive is fine) sparking cider, sparkling grape juice
    1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  1. Combine bourbon, sparking cider, or sparkling grape juice, mustard, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper in a dish mixing well.
  2. Place steak in container with lid and cover with marinade mixture.
  3. Let meat marinate at room temperature for about 30 minutes. Typically steaks can be marinated for as little 2 hours or as much as 24 hours.
  4. Once steak has marinated to your desired timeframe, start your grill bringing it to medium high heat.
  5. Grill steak for 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium rare and remove to a cutting board to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
  6. Cut steaks into 1-1/2 to 2 inch cubes slicing against the grain of the meat.
  7. Season with additional salt and pepper and serve.

This Marinated Steak Tip dish is excellent with Caesar salad, oven rolls, garlic mashed potatoes, asparagus and creamed spinach.

Recipe: Teriyaki Steak Marinade

Marinating meat can be one of the simplest and easiest ways of bringing flavor to foods. The only real limitation is "time". Planning ahead is crucial to determining the tenderness and impartation of flavor that meats experience. 

Regarding the actual time needed for marinating that time is usually determined by the type of meat to be marinated and the size of the cut. Typically it can take from two hours for chicken, and as long as eight hours for pork or beef. The focus being that the pork or beef has not been sliced into thin strips. When the meat is sliced into strips the marinade can cover and coat more of the surface area of the meat and will require less time to do its job.

There are some basic common sense rules that one can use to ensure that you get the maximum use out of your marinade.

  • First consider the type of container to be used when marinating. Marinate meat in a glass, heavy plastic or heavy plastic bags. Using metal aluminum and copper containers may cause the marinades' acidity to react with aluminum or copper and cause both the metal and the meat to darken leaving behind a metallic taste.
  • Remove the meat after marinating and discard the leftover liquid.
  • Use about 1/4 cup of marinade per pound of meat. For example, for 2 pounds of beef or chicken strips, use 1/2 cup of marinade.
  • Make extra marinade and set it aside if you want some of the mixture for basting.
  • Planning ahead by starting the marinade in the morning before work or school will ensure that the meat is properly marinated by the end of the day.
  • Once the meat is prepared and covered with the marinade place the meat covered, in the refrigerator.
  • Don't leave meat in marinade longer than 12 hours. Over marinating can make meat mushy.
  • Never allow marinating meat to sit out at room temperature -- even for a short period of time.
  • Discard all marinade that has touched raw meat. Do not use it in cooking.
  • DON'T use marinade from raw meat or fish as a sauce.
  • DON'T reuse leftover marinade for other food.

Try teriyaki marinade for an Asian dish, a red-wine based marinade for steak or a yogurt-based marinade for a Middle-Eastern dish.

Over the years we've used Teriyaki Steak Marinade in a hundred different ways especially in the barbecue business.  Most of my friends at one time or another have purchased teriyaki sauce or teriyaki steak marinade from some purveyor.  So to make things easier we've decided to produce the recipe we commonly use to give our meats that decidedly Asian / Hawaiian flavor.  The process is quick and easy and relatively painless.  Most people can make this recipe right in their kitchens probably without having to head to the market.  So, follow this recipe to see how we do it.  As for just plain old easiness I've added our video on making the sauce to this website. 

The first things we want to do is assemble all the ingredients necessary to make this wonderful sauce.  You'll need the following:
  • 1 Clove Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Ginger Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 5 Tablespoons White Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Corn Starch
  • 1-1/2 Cups Tap Water
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes (If Desired)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Onion Powder (If Desired)
Mix thoroughly and let rest in a sealed container for about 2 hours to mature.  Recipe can be rested in a container overnight which will improve the blending and maturity of the flavors.  If you desire a thicker sauce you can bring the ingredients to boil in a container on your stove then quickly reduce the heat to simmer until you've achieved the desired thickness.

BBQ Chicken Recipe

BBQ Chicken Grill
BBQ Chicken Recipe in Tangy Mustard Sauce

 

Superb BBQ Chicken Recipe in Tangy Mustard makes this gourmet dish a joy for all chicken lovers......

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 T Jake's Santa Barbara Smoked Rub Seasonings


Directions
Our BBQ Chicken Recipe in Tangy Mustard Sauce starts with boneless, skinless Chicken breasts. Some say that boneless breasts will dry out faster than bone-in breasts and this may be true but not in our recipe. We’ll be preparing the chicken by first ensuring that is it clean and ready for our premium ingredients. Secondly, we’ll ensure that the chicken is moist and ready to receive our preparatory coating. We’ll be using a marinade of yellow mustard, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce. We’ll make a nice blend of the ingredients then we’ll coat each breast thoroughly with the mixture.

Following that we’ll leave the breasts to rest in the mixture for about 1 hour. After the 1 hour resting period we’ll be bringing the chicken up in flavor by adding one of our Famous dry rubs. We like the contrast between the mustard, Worcestershire combination and our Santa Barbara Smoked Rub. The dry rub is natural, blended with copious amounts of Hungarian Paprika, Chili Powder, Smoked Kosher Salt and Maple Sugar not to mention all the other spices and ingredients. This is a perfect dry rub that adds an enormous amount of flavor to the meat with a very satisfying pinch of heat. Once the natural dry rub has been added to the BBQ Chicken Recipe we’ll let the chicken rest for another hour. The hour will further confirm the addition of the dry rub by layering in the taste. Now comes the fun part, the bbq cooking.

We’ll be doing some open grilling of the bbq chicken breasts. We’ll need some standard no-light charcoal briquettes, some wood chunks and of course a charcoal bbq grill. I would suggest a chimney starter that can collect the briquettes and light them in preparation of the barbecue. In addition this entire process should take about 1 hour from start to finish. That essentially means once the chicken is marinated and rested we combine the time in which the charcoal burns and reaches it optimum temperature plus the time it takes to grill the chicken breasts.

In addition we’ll be making a Bourbon Glaze Sauce that can be ladled onto a plate along side the bbq chicken if desired. Even simpler is to heat some of our Jake’s Famous barbecue sauce and reserve that along side the finished bbq chicken.


Grill or broil chicken until done. Optionally you can baste the chicken with the reserved bbq sauce and cook for additional 10 minutes. The Chicken is done when no longer pink in center. You may now serve the chicken along with the reserved sauce.

Our BBQ Chicken recipes provide you the best in flavor and taste much like our popular mouthwatering savory dry rubs. Jake's Famous brand Pure Santa Maria Rub is excellent for chicken, tri tip, steaks, ribs and more. This key dry rub will build new levels of flavor onto bbq chicken recipes and is our go to at practically every barbecue our Tri-Tip, Steak and Rib Rub for sale are both superior blends of herbs and spices that improve upon the old standard Santa Maria Style BBQ Chicken Recipes.

Over the years our Chicken Rub has become a main line staple on the barbecue scene.  True BBQ Chicken recipes require time and patience and most people buy them because they understand the time and energy it takes to produce and exceptional tasting meal.  We season our Chicken with our then we let the BBQ Chicken preparation marinate in the dry rub seasoning for a minimum of an hour. The Chicken after preparation is covered and placed in a fridge on a middle shelf during the marinating process.

If we choose to smoke the chicken we complete the process by using wood fire (Red Oak) or Charcoal with smoking chips. If using smoking chips make sure you soak the chips in water for at least 2 hours. Then put a handful of chips on the coals or in a smoke box once you have reached the right temperature for smoking.  I take BBQ Sauce or our special recipe Bourbon Glaze warm that and hold for serving with the Brisket.  That warmed sauce becomes more of a condiment at this point and my guests are afforded the opportunity to lather on as much sauce as they prefer during their eating process.

If your time is critical we can give you more time more efficiently by reducing the amount of it you waste on non productive things especially during a barbecue. To that end we are listing some of the key dry rubs we use when making our bbq chicken recipe. We have also listed an additional barbecue chicken recipe to give you options on just how to use your sauces.

Tri Tip, Steak and Rib Rub

A full flavored dry rub recipe with bold hints of smoked hickory salt, rich brown sugar, savory granulated garlic, onions, coarse ground black pepper and the most perfect blend of tarragon and oregano.

Santa Maria Pure Dry Rub

How fantastic it is this straightforward, no frills, all action Santa Maria inspired dry rub.  Combining rich hints of wholesome garlic, coarse ground black pepper, smoked kosher salt, the freshest parsley and hints of onion and mustard.

Santa Barbara Smoked Rub

Life is better when the perfect blend of spices and herbs join together to improve your life and tastes.  This righteous blend of New Mexico Chili powder, cayenne, smoked hickory salt, golden brown sugar, granulated garlic, onion and more make this the quintessential dry rub.  A rub that not only delivers its best flavors to perfect brisket but increase peak flavor with the right hints of smokiness.  This is a keystone dry rub in our stable of rubs.  And right now this dry rub could be yours.

After seasoning and grilling your bbq chicken recipe allow the chicken at least 4 to 5 minutes to rest. Plate the chicken with baked potato, asparagus or broccoli combination. Also a rice pilaf is a nice compliment to the bbq chicken.

To help out our many customers requests we are including instructions on How To Brisket...see below:

Ingredients Needed:

-Yellow Mustard
- Jake's Dry Rubs (Tri Tip, Steak and Rib Rub, or Santa Maria Pure Dry Rub)
-Charcoal Grill
-Charcoal
-Red Oak Firewood soaked for 20 minutes in water
Sharp Knife
-Plastic bags or sealed container

We'll start with how we make Brisket here at Jake's Famous Foods.  We do a couple of things that maybe a lot of folks don't do but the results are always phenomenal.  So, let's get started.

1. Once you've selected your Brisket from either the grocer or butcher you'll want to thoroughly clean the Brisket.  Cleaning with just regular water is the preferred method that does not leave any residue on the meat.

2. You'll want to trim off any excessive fat.  When we say excessive what we mean is that a good Brisket requires some fat on the meat.  The fat breaks down in the cooking process and adds additional flavor to the meat.  So leave enough fat cap on the meat so that it will add additional flavor.

3. Prepping the meat is fairly simple but it does take some time.  After you've trimmed off the excessive fat and cleaned the meat a second time pat the meat dry with a paper towel.  Once the meat is reasonably dry take some standard yellow mustard in a squirt bottle and squirt that all over the Brisket.  Keep in mind the mustard can be just average style that you would find in a dollar store.  Once the meat is squirted rub the yellow mustard all over the meat ensuring that all of it is covered.  **A Note on the mustard process.  We add mustard to the meat because it adds additional strength in breaking down the muscle fibers of the meat.  The mustard will be absorbed into the meat and it will add a slight tartness to the meat which is highly desired when cooked.

4. Once the meat is covered with the mustard place in a container for resting.  You'll want to rest the meat for a minimum of 1 hour and a maximum of 12 hours.  Anything beyond 12 hours and basically the meat starts to turn to pulp.  So, rest the meat a good two hours if you can spare it.

5. After resting you'll want to add either one of our Famous Tri Tip, Steak and Rib Rub or the traditional Pure Santa Maria Dry Rub  Just click on either term and you will be transported to their respective pages.  Coat and / rub the meat with either dry rub and be a little generous with the rub.  This is a fairly dense meat and basically you'll just be delivering the rub into the first 1 inch layer of the meat.  After the rub is applied allow the meat to rest again in a cool dry place preferably your refrigerator for at least 1 hour and 2 if you can do it.

6. Now your cooking time is going to take at least two hours or more so we want to make sure you get your grill ready.  If using a charcoal grill you'll want to get the coals started in plenty of time ahead of the cooking.  Here a good step after the meat has rested remove it from the refrigerator and place it in a sealed container on your counter.  At the same time go out and start your charcoal grill.  Note, you're grill will take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes to reach a peak cooking temperature and during that time the meat will be resting getting ever closer to ambient room temperature.  We do this so that the meat doesn't have to start on the grill flat cold which will take longer to cook and may actually deliver a poorer flavor to the meat.

7. Once the grill is ready add the soaked Red Oak Firewood onto the charcoals.  The Red Oak will deliver a really nice flavor to the meat in addition to the dry rub.  The fat cap should be on the upside of the meat.  Turning the meat this way will allow a melting effect and will increase the flavor of the meat.

8. Place the lid on the grill and allow the meat to reach its smoking temperature.  Remember brisket will take a fair amount of time to cook (approximately 6-8 hours) so plan ahead especially when smoking. After 30 minutes you'll want to check the temperature gauge to see if additional management is needed.  If the temperature looks steady just leave the grill alone and monitor at least once an hour.  If the temperature is too low or too high then adjust the vent down to reduce temperature and open it up more to add additional oxygen thereby increasing the temperature.

9. After about two hours you'll want to decide what you're final results will look like.  Do you want the meat medium rare, or medium and if you have to medium well.  I like medium so I tend to let the meat cook until it reaches about 200 degrees. Brisket grill temperature should average around 290 to 300 degrees.

10.  Rest the meat for no less than 30 minutes.  This will allow the juices to reabsorb in the meat making the Brisket even juicier.  Following the resting period place the meat on the cutting board and with a sharp knife you'll want to slice off sections that are at least 1/4 inch wide.  Another critical thing is direction for cutting the meat.  You'll want to ensure that you cut perpendicular to the grain of the meat.  The best way to describe it is if you stretch out your hand so that all your fingers are together then place your other hand on top so that your palm is facing you and it rests on all the knuckles.  If this was a knife this would be considered perpendicular.  The same applies to the meat because of where the meat originally comes from there is a degree of musculature that runs within the meat.  Cutting in a perpendicular fashion opposite of the grain of the meat will allow the meat to chew to perfection.  If you cut the meat with the grain where you'll be able to see lines formed in the meat the meat will be chewy so all that hard work will be for not.
