If you’ve ever been bitten by the BBQ bug, you’ve probably tried to make your own BBQ sauce or rub.  I know I have.  But what I’ve found over time is that I never create anything quite as good as I can buy, and the ingredients tend to get pretty expensive.  So I’ve pretty much resigned myself to enjoying the sauces and rubs that I can buy.


However my brother recently shared his BBQ sauce recipe with me and while it starts with a bottle of commercially available sauce, he adds his own style to it with the following recipe.

  • Start off with your favorite BBQ sauce. I like the  Sweet Baby Ray’s sweet BBQ in the  40 oz bottle
  • 12 oz can of Coke
  • 2 tblspn of chili powder
  • 2 tblspn of Lawry’s seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Mix together
  • You can acquire a 40oz. squeeze bottle at your local discount store.

I gotta admit, this was pretty tasty and I’ll be using it on pulled pork in the next week or so.  Give it a shot and I think you’ll find you can personalize a sauce to your own taste.
