AI Barbeque Sauce!

Wow!! The world is changing so fast that it’s almost impossible to keep up with it all. By now, some of you may have heard of “ChatGPT”. That is a “language model” that makes artificial intelligence accessible to everyone. You can go to the ChatGPT website ( and ask “It” any question and you will get a surprisingly accurate and conversational answer. You can even request the answer to have a specific word count and be written at a certain grade level. When I first asked It questions a couple of months ago, I felt a visceral response in my body. I was slightly nauseous and dizzy, as if my circuits had been blown-up. I had trouble comprehending what had just happened and was overwhelmed with feelings of fear, awe, wonder, confusion, and excitement. What a mix!!  After I recovered from the physical fall out, I got a bit addicted to asking “It” so many random questions.

Since food is my passion, I wanted to know if It could generate recipes. I have been on a mission to find, taste, and use the best barbeque sauce available. I asked It for a barbeque sauce recipe. Lo and behold, I was so surprised when It gave me a recipe that sounded quite delicious, using an ingredient that I would have never thought to put in barbeque sauce ‒ smoked paprika. It is very clever and apparently is also a gourmet cook! I made the sauce and it was wildly delicious. The flavor was multi-dimensional and lingered in my mouth for a long time. When I compared AI barbeque sauce to Sweet Baby Rays, It made Ray’s taste like tomato flavored corn syrup. It, you have a very sophisticated and gourmet pallet! How cool is that?! You impress me!

This recipe makes about 1½ cups. Interestingly enough, the second time I typed in “barbeque sauce recipe”, It gave me the recipe with the addition of two tablespoons of molasses and 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard. It! You appear to be consistently inconsistent! I will soon try that version.
