Homemade BBQ Sauce

Homemade BBQ Sauce

I’m sure you have noticed now that my family loves to smoke meats and have BBQ.  A good BBQ all comes down to the sauce.  Last year, a friend of mine passed along to me her favorite homemade BBQ sauce.

At this point, I did not even know people actually made their own BBQ sauce.  Then, I read the recipe and thought I have that all in my pantry and fridge!

I whipped this up really fast and fell in love.  Now, we use it on all of our meats and BBQ recipes!

Homemade BBQ Sauce

Yield: 2 Cups


  • 1/2 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 Cup Sage (I used about 1 Tsp of dried Sage)
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tsp Celery Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp Tabasco
  • 1 1/2 C Ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp Liquid Smoke


  1. Simply combine all the ingredients into a small saucepan and cook on medium heat. This will cook until the brown sugar has completely melted. Typically this just takes about 5-10 minutes.

Pure deliciousness.

    Does it keep very well in the refrigerator?

      Yes it does, I’ve kept mine in there for several months. I usually make double to keep extra.

    This was really great! I did add a 1/4 cup of vinegar and a tsp each of cumin and pepper for some added kick(for my husband), but it was fabulous to start with! Thanks very much for sharing…. :)

    Does anyone have a recipe that does not use ketchup, it is so high in sugar.
