"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

Personal Notes:
Smokey Bacon BBQ Sauce: Using accumulated juices skim off fat and discard. Remove bacon from brisket, chop into small pieces, and heat in medium saucepan until fat has rendered, about 5 minutes. Add 1 onion, chopped fine; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Off heat, add 1/2 cup cider vinegar and 1/3 cup brown sugar; stir until well combined. Return to medium heat and reduce to syrupy consistency, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, take accumulated juices and add enough chicken broth to make 3 cups. Add to saucepan and reduce until the mixture make 3 cups, about 8 minutes. Off heat, stir in 1/2 cup ketchup and 1 canned chipotle chile in adobo sauce, minced. You may strain the sauce through a fine strainer if you would like.
