This is one of the best BBQ sauces I have ever had--sweet and tangy and balanced just right.
Make and share this Steven Raichlen's Nashville Sweet Barbecue Sauce recipe from Food.com.
- Combine ketchup, brown sugar, lemon juice, zest, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, mustard, onion powder, and pepper in a nonreactive saucepan. Whisk to mix.
- Let the sauce gradually come to a simmer over medium heat and simmer until thick and flavorful, 8 to 10 minutes.
- If not serving the sauce immediately, let cool to room temperature, transfer to air tight jars, and refrigerate until serving.
