I don’t know exactly where this barbecue sauce recipe came from. My mom (hi mom!) passed it down to me and I have been using forever. Better than anything I have found in the bottle, and so easy to make, this 7 ingredient sauce takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish. It is great to make ahead and refrigerate; it should keep for a few weeks (probably even more).
I use liquid smoke in this recipe to give the sauce that slow cooked barbecue flavor. It adds a deep smoky flavor to the sauce, so even if you don’t use a grill, you will still get a touch of that smoky flavor.
The ingredients are really quite simple. It takes me 5 minutes to measure everything out and get it ready to “cook.” Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium-low heat and stir until butter is melted.
Continue to stir until sauce starts to bubble. Remove from heat and make some barbecue!
I love to use this recipe for barbecued chicken thighs, but it is also great on ribs, pork chops, and chicken breasts. Or dare I say a barbecue baked potato?
What did you use this sauce on? Meat, vegetables, potatoes? I would love to hear your ideas!
