Homemade Barbecue Sauce

It excites me that food bloggers allow others to have a peek into their kitchens and have the opportunity to try their tried and true recipes. Laurie from the blog, Simply Scratch, just shared a secret with all of us readers. She worked her magic in the kitchen and recreated Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce. She's kept this one to herself for a while.

I have never had that barbecue sauce before. I've heard rave reviews of it. Why would I even need to try it out now?

Itty Bitty requests barbecue sauce on everything and is his condiment of choice. He approved of this barbecue sauce and enjoyed it on baked chicken drumsticks basted with it. 

I made the full batch and froze half of it to enjoy another night. This is a great no cook barbecue sauce recipe that is quick and easy to prepare.

Makes about 4 cups

Stars of the Show:
  • 1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 1/2 tsp ground mustard
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
And Action:

In a large bowl whisk all ingredients until the sugar has dissolved and the spices are thoroughly distributed. Serve immediately or cover and store in the fridge or freeze.

Good post this. I've never liked most of the commercial ones so far. Or just haven't found one that I like. Will try this out soon.

Isn't it great when someone figures out the "secret" recipe for a favorite sauce. Best thing when you make it yourself is there are no fillers or artificial flavors. Sounds good!

Sweet Baby Ray's is pretty decent, but I always think homemade bbq is so much better! This sounds great =)

Ping - This barbecue sauce was so simple to make and delicious.

Jeanette - I am not creative at all so it helps when someone else does the work and I get to test it out in my own kitchen.

Peggy - It was!
