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.
