Homemade BBQ Sauce

I wanted to re-post my BBQ sauce recipe as it not only goes well with the ribs but it goes with EVERYTHING!  Put it on chicken, pork, steak, kabobs... whatever you dream up for the grill.   I like to use it as a dipping sauce for sandwiches too.   If you double or triple the recipe, store it in little mason jars in the frig... makes for a quick but excellent hostess gift or when friends come to visit.

Homemade Sweet BBQ Sauce

  • 1 C. packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 C. ketchup
  • 1/2 C. molasses
  • 1/4 C. cider vinegar
  • 1/4 C. chopped yellow or sweet onion
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 3 T grainy mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1 t liquid smoke
  • 1 t cayenne
  • salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth.   Transfer to a medium saucepan and cook over medium heat until reduced and at a desired thickness, usually about an hour.
