Tip of the Week

I couldn’t believe it myself, but yes, someone made a barbecue version of spaghetti. The Neely’s are a husband and wife cooking duo on the Food Network and they cook up some tasty dishes. So if you’re feeling a little dangerous, or adventurous, go ahead and give it a try – the kids will love it.
Neely's BBQ Sauce:

16 ounces ketchup
8 ounces water
3 ounces brown sugar
3 ounces white sugar
1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon dry mustard powder
1-ounce lemon juice
1-ounce Worcestershire sauce
4 ounces apple cider vinegar
1-ounce light corn syrup
2 ounces Neely's BBQ Seasoning, recipe follows

For the spaghetti:

1 bell pepper
1 onion
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 to 2 pounds cooked pork
1 pound spaghetti

For the BBQ sauce:
Combine all of the sauce ingredients in a stockpot or large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Reduce temperature to low and simmer- uncovered, for at least 2 hours.
For the spaghetti:
Dice bell peppers and onions and sauté together in extra-virgin olive oil. Add the sautéed vegetables and cooked pork to the sauce and continue to simmer for up to 1 hour. Cook pasta according to package directions and drain. Pour sauce over cooked pasta and serve.
Neely's BBQ Seasoning:
4 ounces paprika
2 ounces white sugar
1 teaspoon onion powder
