BBQ Sauce should NEVER be bought! Why? Because it’s usually nothing more than a bottle of overpriced red high-fructose corn syrup. That is, unless you’re willing to spend 8-10 bucks on one of the so-called “higher quality” brands. Nope!
This is one of the the easiest, simplest, and most cost-efficient sauces to make at home. It’s also very manly. So, save your money and strengthen your manhood by making this Easy Homemade BBQ Sauce.
Easy Homemade BBQ Sauce Ingredients
You’re probably thinking there’s some big secret to making a decent homemade barbecue sauce. Nope. It can actually be made with very simple ingredients probably sitting in your fridge right now.
I’m sure I’ll catch hell from all the BBQ “purists” out there. But, I really don’t give a crap. My goal is to make healthy tasty, easy and accessible for you. I really couldn’t care less what the “professionals” think.
Now, back to the ingredients. Let’s take a look. Shall we?
- Organic Ketchup: Why organic ketchup? Because it doesn’t have corn syrup in the ingredients. You could also use Simply Heinz as well. Just be sure and read the label.
- Maple Syrup: It’s completely optional. So, if you like a more robust bbq sauce just leave it out. I tend to like mine a little sweeter.
- Vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce: Be sure it’s vegetarian. Many brands of Worcestershire sauce use anchovy. A damn fish! In BBQ sauce! So, once again…make sure it’s vegetarian.
- Low-sodium Soy Sauce or Tamari: If you want to make this Easy Homemade BBQ Sauce gluten free, use Tamari.
- White Vinegar: It’s completely optional, but I like the “bite” the vinegar adds.
- Smoked Paprika: Feel free to use regular paprika. It’s completely up to you. But, I LOVE smoky things.
- Liquid Smoke: Once again, this is optional. Like I said, I love smoky things.
- Yellow Mustard: Nothing fancy. Just plain, everyday yellow mustard.
