BBQ Sauce

This is an attempt at documenting one of my favorite condiments by combining techniques and ingredients of various barbecue sauce recipes. I was shooting for a thick and peppery sauce to accompany most barbecued meats. Your mileage may vary depending on your preferences and the meats your cooking.

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 3 Tbsp bourbon
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp course black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 tsp hot sauce
  • 2 tsp molasses
  • 1/2 cup water (optional) *

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and stir frequently. Reduce to desired consistency, 15 - 30 minutes depending on your preference.

* I've used water as a way to stretch the time under simmer, specifically to meld favors a bit more.
