Cook time 90 mins|
Forget the store-bought stuff and lay our version on thick. Smoked tomatoes and a blend of spices make for a ketchup of epic proportions.
1 YELLOW ONION, PEELED & QUARTERED
3 cloves GARLIC
2 tbsp OLIVE OIL, DIVIDED
1 (28 oz) can PEELED, WHOLE TOMATOES
2 Tbsp TOMATO PASTE
1/4 cup APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1/8 tsp GROUND CLOVES
1/4 tsp CAYENNE PEPPER
4 TBSP BROWN SUGAR
When ready to cook start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 225 degrees F (set to Super Smoke mode if using a WiFIRE-enabled grill) and preheat, lid closed 10-15 minutes.
Toss onion and garlic with 1 Tbsp olive oil and spread on a sheet tray with tomatoes. Place tray directly on the grill grate and smoke for 1 hour.
Remove from the grill and set aside.
Heat remaining olive oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 1 minute. Add tomato paste and cook another minute until tomato paste turns a rust color.
Deglaze by adding smoked tomatoes, apple cider vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Stir with wooden spoon to pick up all the bits on the bottom of the pan.
Add ground cloves and cayenne and bring to a simmer. Cook 20 minutes until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Add brown sugar and stir to combine. Transfer mixture to a blender and puree until smooth.
Transfer to a storage container and to the refrigerator to cool. Serve with burgers, hot dogs and fries. Enjoy!
