A different way to cook spaghetti. The homemade BBQ sauce is delicious, but I suppose in a pinch you could use any pre-made sauce. From Down Home with the Neelys on Food Network (what would we do without that channel)!
- 2 cups ketchup
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 5 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons sugar

- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small green bell pepper, chopped
- 1⁄2 yellow onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon garlic salt
- 1 lb pork or 1 lb beef or 1 lb chicken, cooked and chopped into bite-size pieces
- 1 lb spaghetti
- For BBQ Sauce:.
- In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients.
- Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to simmer.
- Cooked uncovered, stirring frequently, for 2 hours.
- For BBQ Spaghetti:.
- In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Saute the pepper and onion, until softened for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the garlic salt.

I really enjoyed this. My only change to the recipe was to add some liquid smoke to the sauce. Thanks for the posting.
This was wonderful. The only thing I did different was to add some ground chicken. I have made this before, but did not use this sauce. I believe this sauce really makes this so good. I think I thought I could get by with a bottle of sauce last time, but I'm so glad I made this sauce this time. Thanks so much for posting. I will be making this a lot this summer.
It's getting the 5 for the sauce-- so very good!! Due to picky kids, I knew I couldn't serve them this exactly as written-- but my modifications were minor altogether-- heaven forbid that there actually be a meat/sauce mixed in with the spaghetti!! I slow cooked, using only 1/2 cup water (boneless pork ribs) til fork tender (about 4 hours on high) and served meat, sauce, spaghetti all separate-- to be mixed as desired. Very yummy. I also cut back on the pepper- which I usually do to recipes due to personal taste. Thanks for a great BBQ pork!!
