This is my absolute go to sauce for barbecuing. I found it in a leaflet barbecue book in 1998. I may have changed it along the way, but the basics are still the same. Instead of reaching for the bottle next time you are standing at the grill, make this instead. Never disappoints and is great on chicken pork and beef.
Everybody needs a great barbecue sauce recipe! I’ve been making this one since 1998 and it honestly never ever disappoints. It’s easy to make and comes together really quick. You can make it in advance and keep it in the fridge until ready to use. You can even can or jar this barbecue sauce for long term use! it’s great to add to the grill or use as a dipping sauce for dishes like my Crispy Fried Chicken Cutlets.

- Will keep in a glass jar in the fridge for a few weeks.
Finally, Let’s Talk About The Barbecue Sauce
Like I said earlier, this is my go to barbecue sauce for so many dishes. I love it and it really is so easy to make. Just put the ingredients in a saucepan and let it simmer away for 20 minutes. Then you are done. You can then put it in a jar and keep in in the fridge until you plan on rolling out the barbecue.
I try to make this in advance and keep it on hand in the fridge. This recipe only makes enough for basically one dinner. If you like doing batches of stuff, double or triple the recipe. It will keep in the fridge for at least a month. So, you should have no worries about it going off before you get the chance to use it.
I use the Barbecue Sauce all the time, it’s my go to! It’s used in my delicious Dry Rub Oven Barbecue Ribs as well as a dipping sauce for the Cajun Dry Rub Chicken Wings or the Crispy Fried Chicken Cutlets.
