This is a sweet BBQ sauce I have been making for 10 years or more. It is always a favorite and vanishes quickly. It is a good solid basic BBQ sauce. The Tabasco sauce gives it a nice little bite.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine ketchup, apple cider vinegar, molasses, honey, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and hot sauce in a sauce pan; bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce to a simmer and cook until desired consistency is reached (30 to 45 minutes), stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat and cool.
  4. Add to your meat of choice near the end of cooking; if you add too early it will burn because it is sweet.

We had this as a sauce over a pulled pork wraps & really enjoyed it! Still have enough left for a couple of burgers, too! Love these sweet sauces & the little kick it has is ever so nice! Just the kind of sauce I enjoy making & sharing with others! Definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks for posting! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]

I love to make BBQ Sauce and this was very good! I only made half as a test but plan on making it again soon. I will use it to make BBQ Beef Sandwiches for a meal sometime this week. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
