For as long as I can remember I have loved barbecues. My love affection with grilled meat began when I was a young girl going to barbecues with family, at friend’s homes, and even at church functions. When someone brought home a bag of those black briquettes, I knew my favorite meal was on the way. I hope you love this smoky BBQ recipe as much as I do! Here’s how to make Texas Style Barbecue Sauce:
Texas Style BBQ Sauce Recipe
- 3 cups ketchup
- 1/4 cup mustard
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon molasses
- 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup dried minced onion
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)
- 2 teaspoons ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoons ground white pepper
The first thing you want to do is find a medium saucepan that will fit all of the ingredients. I’m all about less dishes to wash so mixing all of your ingredients together to make this homemade BBQ sauce inside the saucepan you are going to cook it in just makes sense.
Next, you guessed it, add all of the ingredients into the saucepan.
Give it a good stir.
Now heat over low heat for fifteen to twenty minutes, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat. At this point, you can allow the barbeque sauce to cool and then send it through a blender if you like a smooth barbecue sauce. I leave mine chunky.
Makes about four cups of barbecue sauce. Preserve in a water bath or refrigerate. Baste hamburgers, ribs, chicken, and porkchops with my Texas Style BBQ Sauce recipe.
