Sweet and Tangy BBQ sauce

This is a sweet and tangy homemade BBQ sauce that is easy to make and is so good. This makes a little more than 3 cups of sauce so you can use it for a few meals. We made ribs one night and BBQ chicken pizza the next night. Because I used this in meals for my kids I didn’t make it super spicy. Feel free to add more of the peppers if that is how you like it.

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  •  3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
  • 2 teaspoons hickory-flavored liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon chili powder
  •  1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, mix together all the ingredients.
  2. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for up to 20 minutes. For thicker sauce, simmer longer, and for thinner, less time is needed. Sauce can also be thinned using a bit of water if necessary. Brush sauce onto any kind of meat during the last 10 minutes of cooking.
