It didn't happen over night, but Rufus Teague's sauce has sure come a long way. From the ol' pot he used to stir it in, to winning competitions all over the place it has still stayed pretty much the same. If he was still around there's no doubt he'd be tellin' everybody within earshot of how he knew he had something with this recipe from day one. And remember,

"Good sauce makes bad barbecue good and good barbecue gooder."

Bbq Smoked Sausage Mini Toastadas

Makes 12


1 cup smoked sausage, chopped roughly

1 garlic clove, minced

1 large tomato, diced

1 onion, diced

1 sprig of rosemary

2 bell peppers, diced

12 mini corn tortillas

½ cup Rufus Teague Apple Mash BBQ sauce

½ cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

¼ c parsley, chopped


Fry tortillas until nice and crisp.

Start making the filling. Add onions, garlic, smoked sausage, bell pepper, and tomato into pan with a little butter. Cook down until all the veggies are softened and the sausage is slightly browned. Add the Rufus Teague BBQ sauce. If it’s looking too thick, add some water or beef stock to thin out.

While the sausage, veggies, and sauce are coming together, add your rosemary. Make sure that you are not overcooking the vegetables; you still want to have a bit of a snap to your onions and peppers.

Top the toastadas and place in oven for 7 minutes. Half way through the baking process, add the shredded cheese.

Garnish with chopped parsley and serve warm.
