30 Days of Grilling Day # 8: Watermelon BBQ Sauce

Yes, I know how that sounds.  Watermelon BBQ Sauce.  Yuck.

But when I say trust me, I mean it.  The flavor of this sauce is wonderful.  The time invested in cooking down the watermelon is TOTALLY worth it.  Try it, I promise, your going to like it!

Watermelon BBQ Sauce

1 6 pound seedless watermelon

8 oz tomato paste

1 TBSP onion powder

1 TBSP garlic powder

2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

½ cup sherry

2 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp liquid smoke

Cut the melon into chunks and place in a saucepan. Cook it uncovered over medium heat until the melon is the consistency of applesauce (approximately 2-3 hours) Stirring occasionally. Add remaining ingredients and simmer uncovered over low heat for 2 hours. Allow to cool to room temperature before using. Good on chicken and fish. This recipe can also be made with yellow tomatoes and watermelon.
