Mopping Sauce

Andy and I spent yesterday smoking our first brisket. We brined in a salt water solution, and smoked for about 8 hours over chunk charcoal and mesquite on his Big Green Egg. The results were extremely tasty, if a little bit dry. We used a mopping sauce I made up from bottled BBQ sauce and ingredients we had hanging around. Very good flavor. I started with Stubbs Spicey Sauce. My favorite.

Mopping Sauce:

1 stick of butter
½ white onion, minced
8 cloves garlic, minced
18 oz BBQ sauce
1 cup white vinegar
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs cumin
1/2 cup black coffee
zest of 2 limes

Melt butter in a sauce pan.  Cook onions and garlic in the butter until soft.  Add remaining ingredients.  Bring to a boil. Remove from heat.  Use as a sop on grilling meat.
