Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce

Another easy BBQ sauce, this time with more ingredients, but still pretty easy to make.


  • 32oz Ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbs mustard powder
  • 2 Tbs paprika
  • 2 Tbs onion powder
  • 1 Tbs garlic powder
  • 1 Tbs chili powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • Mix the ingredients in a saucepan over low heat, stirring often for at least one hour. It should be reduced enough to fit into the ketchup bottle once it has thoroughly cooled.

    Regarding Ketchup: Using ketchup imparts the preservatives that will allow this sauce to last several months in the refrigerator. Both Heinz and Hunts now make varieties that use sugar rather than HFCS. If you’re totally against using ketchup as the base, you can use tomato sauce/paste and additional vinegar.
