Cooking With Kimes - Homemade BBQ Sauce

Spice up any regular BBQ dish with this simple and homemade BBQ sauce. It only takes a few minutes to mix this sauce up, and you can spice it up or sweeten it up to taste!




  • 1 cup of ketchup
  • 2 tbsp. of tomato paste 
  • 1 tbsp. of yellow mustard
  • 1 tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce
  • A few drops of liquid smoke
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar – add more if you like a sweeter sauce
  • 2-3 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons of chili powder (I use hot) – add more if you like a spicier sauce
  • 1 onion minced
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced 
  • 1 tbsp. of butter

Over medium heat, melt butter and cook onion on medium heat for 3-4 minutes until soft and translucent. Add in garlic and cook another minute or so. Be careful not to burn.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes until thickened. 
Remove from heat and transfer into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. 

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5-7 days.
