    Cooking for my nephews wedding reception and this sauce will be on the table as well as a vinegar based sauce for the pulled pork.  Planning on a 18 hour cook on the brisket at 245F with the last four hours allowing the fire to die down on its own.  Will be around 125F when I take them off.

    Replaced the but with ghee to avoid the butter burn taste( I'm sure I could of used half butter and half ghee to avoid that also) add a little more of everything that wasn't butter (or ghee) and 4 cloves of pressed garlic. Came out better than when I followed the recipe

    I dig Aaron Franklin. I use his methods for smoking and he's great, but this sauce is horrible tasting. Way too much butter and onion. Not really even a BBQ sauce in my opinion. I tossed it. Couldn't even pretend to like it. I don't think he really serves OR eats this himself. I make my own sauce, sweet and vinegary but never any butter.

    I was excited to try this, and did this weekend. Sorry, it was legit disgusting. You have to LOVE vinegar smell and taste to even theoretically enjoy this. And if you refrigerate, the butter separates creates a nasty layer above all the nasty vinegar. Just absolutely horrible!

    Spent the first 22 years of my life growing up in TX and I never remember there being chunked onions in BBQ sauce from the restaurants in Houston. That was 15 years ago. It was all a slightly spicy, fairly thin liquid with course black pepper visible. Not very sweet and not very vinegary as I recall. I'm not sure if this sauce is pureed at the end or not. I would still try it I suppose.

    I made this to accompany a brisket I smoked this weekend. Visiting the in-laws in South Africa (I'm Australian). They wanted me to let you know it was 'baie lekker sous'! That's a good thing I'm told. Heading to Austin via Colorado in August, pop the kettle on coz I'll be in for lunch! 🙂

    Do not waste your time and ingredients making this recipe. It is horrible, no way this is what he makes in the restaurant. Just a strong onion and butter taste with a tomato kick. No way a BBQ sauce. His other smoking video tips are useful but this video is not.

    THIS IS NOT THE SAUCE HE MAKES AT THE RESTARUANT. I HAVE BEEN THERE SEVERAL TIMES. 1ST OF ALL, 1/2 LB OF BUTTER WILL NEVER MIX TOGETHER, THIS IS A BOGUS SAUCE GUYS. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF BBQ SAUCE WITH BUTTER…… I WASTED SOME REALLY GOOD INGREDIENTS MAKING THIS, NOT HAPPY AT ALL. I WOULDN'T SHARE MY REAL RECIPE EITHER, BUT WHY THIS MIXTURE??? LIKE SOMEONE ELSE COMMENTED, IT TASTE LIKE SPAGHETTIO'S

    Skip the butter and replace the onions with a tsp of onion powder instead, and you've got a good starting point for a basic ketchup BBQ sauce that you can tweak to suit your taste.

    Thanks for the upload.

    Curious why this sauce recipe doesn't match the "regular barbecue sauce" recipe found in the Franklin BBQ cookbook? Which sauce is served in the restaurant – the butter/onion version found in the video or the non-onion/butter version in the cookbook?
