Best Barbecue Sauce

"My hubby eats this stuff by the gallon it's good on anything. It's perfect with my pulled pork recipe. We use it on chicken, pork, even as a dip for homemade chicken fingers. I have no idea how many servings this has. I just put in a number."

  1. This was easy to make and I liked that it didn't have vinegar in it. I let it simmer for about 30 minutes and we really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recipe.
  2. I can't believe I didn't rate this in November, when we had a big party and used your recipe. AMAZING results!!! I made it exactly as listed and my guests went nuts over it. I used hickory liquid smoke and it was perfect. Thanks! Oh, I also let it sit overnight in the fridge.
  3. Made a double batch of this sauce primarily to use in your recipe #132604 #132604, but also so I'd have some to keep as a dip for another day! Thought about omitting the liquid smoke (not usually on my pantry shelf) but then decided to go the whole way, & am very glad I did, although I did cut it back to just 2 teaspoons! This is a GREAT, ALL-AROUND SAUCE FOR MEAT, & something I'll be making often! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in the current Pick-A-Chef]
  4. I used this recipe because it was suggested on Recipe #143093 The sauce was easy to make and tasted great! It held up well in the crockpot and the smoke flavoring, which i find overpowering, was perfect in this recipe! Thanks chef!
  5. I have made this many times and its outstanding, I usually want to lick the pot clean. The last 2 times I made it, it was way to spicy, I know its the liquid smoke but I did 1 Tbsp like I always do, I don't know what its problem is.


I am a toddler teacher at a daycare. I love to cook & I plan a cooking activity with "my kids" every week. I learned to cook through my best friends mom & my grandma. I would consider cooking my passion. I never follow a recipie completly. I always add my own twists. I realized awhile ago I add so many twists that it is my recipie. I would have to say that this website is my favorite cookbook. I hope you enjoy my recipies as much as my family does.
