I've got a 9lb / 4kg pork leg which was set to cook at 225F /110C for around 14 hours (based on guidelines of 1.5 - 2 hours per pound). I discovered the temperature was wrong and now I'm not sure the best way to recover the situation. [more inside]

I'm at the point in life where I can start affording some small luxuries, and one of my longstanding dreams has been to have the ability to cook restaurant quality steak and stir-fries indoor in my home kitchen via a proper commercial grilltop.

Barbecue sauce you'd find at any rib joint?

I'm making hot links on the grill and french fries tonight, and rather than use a bottle of KC Masterpiece, i'd like to make my own barbecue sauce. Generally I love all kinds of barbecue, but i'm looking for a sauce recipe that you'd find at any BBQ booth at any outdoor concert or event. Any ideas?

As a connoisseur of barbecue sauce, on a lifelong quest to either find or replicate the best barbecue sauce I ever tasted, I keep coming back to the same thing: What exactly is the key ingredient or ingredients in a barbecue sauce that really make it special? What ingredients really make the difference between a good sauce, and a really great sauce? And just how much of a difference does it make to actually cook it and reduce it rather than mix it cold?
