Homemade BBQ Sauce

I have tried just about every sauce in the grocery markets and never really found one that my husband Mark and I really liked so I experimented with many different ingredients until I came up with a winner that suited both of us. This homemade BBQ sauce works wonderfully with pork and chicken, on the grill, in the oven, on the rotisserie, or to use with a meatball or little smokies appetizer. It’s also perfect to use as a dipping sauce.

 Homemade BBQ Sauce Ingredients
  • 4 cups ketchup
  • 1 10 oz bottle A1 steak sauce
  • 1 10 oz bottle Heinz 57
  • 1 1/2 cans root beer
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/3 cup dark corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbs cinnamon

Homemade BBQ Sauce Directions
  • Mix all ingredients together and blend well.
  • This BBQ sauce freezes great up to one year in an airtight container; however, it does not completely solidify, which makes it easy to scoop out what you need as you need it.
  • Do not store in pantry unless you can use it right away.
  • Yield approximately 8 cups.

Canning is a great way to store foods for long periods of time and makes them easy to add to gift baskets year round as well. This homemade BBQ sauce recipe will remain shelf stable for approximately 18 months once canned. If I am cooking something like kabobs and I want an Asian flair, I add a small amount of ginger powder (a little goes a long way).  Make up some steamed rice, maybe bokchoy. I’m hungry just thinking about it.

I started following The Coupon Wizards after doing some research on the subject, with a little prodding from a friend, and coming across them on Facebook. I was hooked immediately & started to learn quickly. Mostly out of necessity, but also because I loved everything about it. The organization, the researching, the putting together of deals, but most of all, the savings! I was saving my family money to pay those bills & be able to eat all at the same time. This blog was a life saver; literally! In no time at all, I was a blogger myself on the site. My husband has since found a job, but this is now mine and I love, love, love it and hope you will to. Let me know what you think in the comments.
