Andouille in Barbecue Sauce

4 cups onions, finely chopped
1 cup celery, finely chopped
1 cup bell pepper, finely chopped
1 cup parsley, finely chopped
1 cup peanut oil
1 tablespoon garlic, finely chopped
3 cups steak sauce
3 cups ketchup
1/2 cup Louisiana hot sauce
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
3 teaspoons salt, or to taste
1 cup Southern Comfort Liquor
1 pound Andouille sausage

Saute onions, celery, bell pepper and parsley in peanut oil until the onions are clear or tender. Add garlic and cook a little longer. Add steak sauce, hot sauce, and ketchup. Add salt to taste. Add Southern Comfort. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook for 2 to 3 hours. Makes about 3/4 gallon. This will keep in the refrigerator for weeks. Slice 1 pound andouille sausage 1/4 inch thick and combine with 1 cup sauce. Heat well on stove or in a chafing dish. Serve with small pieces of French bread or use toothpicks to spear andouille. You will need plenty of napkins too.
