The only barbecue sauce I use, for everything from shredded pork loin or ribs to thin sliced ham sandwiches or shredded beef. Often served with chilled potato salad & fresh homemade dinner rolls to mop up the sauce (if not using the meat in a sandwich already).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In large saucepan, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for about one hour. Stir occasionally.
  3. *For ribs: Boil ribs with some salt & pepper and a quartered onion until tender. Then drain and place on broiler pan. Baste with sauce, broil 5 minutes, turn ribs over and baste other side. Broil 5 minutes longer. Serve.
  4. *For shredded pork sandwiches: Put sauce and pork loin in crock pot on low for 5-6 hours or until pork begins to shred itself when poked with a fork.
  5. *For barbecue ham sandwiches: Put sauce and thin, deli sliced ham torn into 2 inch pieces into crock pot and heat on low for 2 hours or until hot.

I have been making this bbq sauce ever snice I found it. We just love it. Well, yesterday we had planed on smoking some baby back ribs. But, here in the panhandle of Texas the wind was blowing again, 50mph....So we did them in the oven. I was looking forward to the smokey flavor, so I added some smoke to the bbq sauce, Wow... so good. Thanks again Tink for posting this. We love it, and will keep using it.

Wonderful and easy. Some sauces can take a lot of time, but this was quick and easy as sauces go and taste fantastic. I found this one looking for some sauce for some pulled pork I was making. I was so proud of everything I shared my fixings with several people. They all loved it. One sugestion though. If you're going to use a squirt bottle like I did make sure to chop your vegies very fine or you'll have to lop the top of the spout like I did to get it to work.

Well I guess I'll be the first to rate and review this one. Excellent!!!! I needed sauce for my pulled pork which called for sweet baby rays but I decided to just make my own. SBR's is over rated in my opinion anyway. I had everything I needed for this recipe already so I decided to go with this. After I let it cook for an hour I tasted it and WOW it made my eyes water and thought I may need to dilute it a bit but after I put it on the pulled pork it was perfect just the way it was. It has plenty of zing thats for sure. My ex-wife stopped by just as I mixed it with the pork and said she could smell it as she was coming up to the house so I told her to try some. She's jealous cause I'm a better cook than she is LOL!!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe
