I’ve never used bottled manufactured bbq sauce. The reason is that the first time I read the recipe in the book Joy of Cooking, I realized that I had all the ingredients in my pantry, then I went ahead making the sauce. I firstly used the sauce for my first hamburger, and the result did surprise me a lot. The 2nd time, I used the sauce to marinate the chicken wings for our bbq gathering with friends. My friends were so excited about this time’s chicken wings as they had never tasted such a wonderful flavor at the other bbq gatherings before. This persuaded me that the recipe for this basic bbq sauce was perfect. Therefore, I never mind the bottled bbq sauce on supermarket shelves. Making homemade bbq sauce is very simple once you have all ingredients ready.
This time I marinated the whole duck legs in homemade bbq sauce for 1 day, then I baked them in the oven. I took them out of the oven occasionally to brush bbq sauce over the legs. Baking temperature was about 350F to 375F until the meat attained a perfect color. After beming marinated for such a long time, the meat was very tasty, flavorful and tender. Even when I was writing this post, I wished I could have another barbecued duck leg to please my stomach
