Bill’s Homemade BBQ Sauce

The following is a recipe submitted by Bill Wilson. Many thanks for sharing it with us.

BBQ’ing makes any day a holiday! While many can make some darn good Q… makin your own BBQ sauce will give you the edge when comparisons are made: anyone can buy it, few can make.

Here’s a BBQ sauce recipe that’ll have your family & friends lickin their fingers when they’re done:

16 oz can tomato sauce
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vinegar
1 tbs molasses (Whole Foods organic is best)
2 tbs brown sugar (Whole Foods Dark Organic is best. Use more if desired.)
2 tbs onion powder
1 tbs garlic powder
2 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs black pepper
1 tbs Paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1 – 2 tsp chili powder (adjust for required heat. Go light, you can always add more.)
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp liquid smoke (optional)
1 tsp salt
2 tbs corn starch

Cooking instructions:

Using a low heat, bring slowly to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Cook 5-15 minutes more if thicker sauce is what you prefer. Take off and allow to cool. Bottle and refrigerate – overnight is best. Keep refrigerated. Will last for weeks, if you have any left, that is.

Now, I’ll often make 3 batches of this at once, and tweak 2 of them with differing levels of heat (extra chili powder or habenero sauce), extra sweetness, or extra spices. A 1/2 cup of whiskey can also add some bite.

Enjoy!

    This recipe looks great! I make my own sauce but only use the basic ingredients and it isn’t simmered…..I think I will like this recipe better as the simmering will help the flavors come together. Can’t wait to try!

    I tried this recipe yesterday to use on grilled chicken. I added a half a cup of whiskey as was suggested and it was the Best BBQ sauce I have ever had I think! Thanks for the recipe….I will make this again and again and again.
