Homemade BBQ Sauce

Barbecue sauce is another one of those things that tends to have corn in one form or another in it, whatever brand you buy.
So, again, I wanted to make our own to have on hand. Rod developed this recipe and we've made it several times with variations to rave reviews.

Rod's Home Made Barbecue Sauce
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup tomato paste

6 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
8 tablespoons chili powder
6 tablespoons dried oregano

1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons molasses
4 tablespoons garlic powder
12 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons smoked paprika or chipotle powder

1/4 cup water or more, as needed

Whisk in a pan and simmer until it smells heavenly, adding water to keep it from getting too thick. Use it on the grill or in the oven -- or as a condiment. Yum.

Oh, and you know that you can make a simple chili powder, right?
Like this:
2 tablespoons paprika
2 teaspoons oregano
1 1/4 teaspoons cumin
1 1/4 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 7/8 teaspoon onion powder

  1. Oh interesting! I've never liked BBQ sauce very much, but with this recipe I'm sure I could customize it into something I did like.


We're happy to hear from you; thanks!
