Sweet & Smoky BBQ Sauce

I had one of those moments the other night with hamburgers and chicken on the grill and found myself with NO BBQ sauce.  Ugh! I think it was even a Monday!  Bah!

I decided my hand at making some since I prefer my burgers and chicken heavily sauced.  Sometimes my hubby likes my homemade stuff and sometimes he is not having it, he wants store bought.  Luckily for both of us, he loved this sauce!!  I tweaked a recipe I found to produce my version of this sweet & smokey sauce.  Our chicken and burgers were nearly finished so all I could do was stir it up and use it.  I'm sure it would be best if you had time to simmer it for a little while, but if you don't - no worries!  Just mix it up and use it.

BBQ sauce is so expensive.  Why buy it when you can make it, right?  This sauce is smooth, sweet, and just delicious!  It tastes so much better and fresh compared to bottled sauce.  Doug agreed that I needed to post this recipe so we can make it all the time.  Good stuff!

Here's how I mixed up some Sweet & Smoky BBQ Sauce AT HOME MY WAY:

Sweet & Smokey BBQ Sauce - 
Fast & Homemade

  • 16 oz tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 8 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 1/2 Tablespoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 Tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon lemon pepper
  • 4 1/2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke


I just mixed mine well, heated it in the microwave for a minute to warm, stirred well again, and poured it in a jar. 

You can also add a little tabasco for heat but I didn't have any when I made it.  Store leftovers in the refrigerator.

We used this on chicken and burgers and the next day poured some over cubed pork loin BBQ "pulled" pork.  DELICIOUS STUFF!
