Still no new releases to hype with character backgrounds tied to a recipe. One of the reasons I started this particular weekly post was to give some insight to my readers about the featured character and/or book–stuff that I know but don’t necessarily incorporate into the actual story. And sometimes, when I do this, a character will surprise me with a story from their backstory. I always make note of those instances for use in future books. Since I picked on Jack Riggs for my #ShirtsOffSaturday post on Facebook this past Saturday, it’s only fair that he gets some BBQ out of the deal.

1/4 Cup Liquid Smoke
2 Tablespoons Worchester Sauce
1 Teaspoon each: garlic powder, onion powder, celery salt, sea salt
1/2 Teaspoon pepper
Let’s Make It:

1 Cup ketsup
2 Cups water
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1/4 Cup Worchester sauce
1 Teaspoon sea salt
1 medium onion chiped (or 1/4 cup dried chopped onions)
1/4 Cup white vinegar
Bring all indredients to a boi in a medium sauce pan. Boil for 20 minutes stirring occasionally. Brush or pour lightly over cooked brisket before slicing. Serve the rest in a gravy boat or bowl with a ladle spoon so people can add their own to the meat on their plates. Keep any leftovers in sealed jar in refigerator.
Jack, being a former Texas Ranger and now the sheriff of Bandera County in Texas, knows his BBQ. And being a Wolf, he can eat his way through a brisket or four. 😉 Good thing he met and had the sense to claim Justice. She’s an Oklahoma girl (hence the reason she has the James Gang BBQ recipes) and a firefighter. Trust me when I say first responders are all about finding the good BBQ. If you are interested in their story, you can read FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription or buy it for $3.99. It’s also available in paperback. Just click on either pic or the title to click on over to Amazon to get your very own personal copy. What about y’all? Are you a fan of BBQ? If so, brisket, ribs, or chicken?
