Father's Day Recipe: Make Your Own BBQ Sauce!

We all know how men love their grilling. Father's Day is a great time to get the fire started, and have a family BBQ. We thought we'd share a recipe for homemade Barbecue Sauce. Have your man make it; he'll be proud to have made it himself instead of buying the stuff from the store :)

Yield: 5 Cups
Time: about 45 min

  • 6 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons dark rum or whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 tablespoon pure chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 cups ketchup
  • course salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Combine all ingredients, except for the ketchup, in a large, deep sauce pan. Bring it to a simmer over medium heat.
2. Cook until completely dissolved, stirring constantly (about 5 min).
3. Add ketchup and bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook, uncovered, for about 30 min - stir every 5-10 min. The sauce should look dark and thick.
4. Use right away or store in jars and refrigerate. It will last for a few months.

Enjoy this delicious sauce on burgers, ribs, steak, or chicken. Please share any great grilling tips, trick or recipes - We'd love to hear what you do!
