The basic flavors, sugar and vinegar, give this sauce a sweet-and-sour tang, while beer provides flavor and moisture. This sauce is very spicy. To make it more mild, eliminate one of the chipotle chiles, or eliminate both and substitute one finely minced jalapeño chile.
|garlic cloves, minced|
|chipotle chiles, reconstituted dried or rinsed canned, chopped fine|
Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and simmer gently for about 10 minutes to dissolve the sugar and cook the alcohol off the wine and beer. Use the mixture to brush on barbecuing ribs or brisket.
