Homemade Barbecue Sauce

If you read my ketchup post, you already have a pretty good idea what I’d be looking for in a homemade barbecue sauce–something that tastes relatively like storebought without having any junky ingredients. I found this recipe, made by someone who likes Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce, which made it sounds rather promising. After tweaking, this is what my recipe came out to be. (And yes, it was Colton approved when it was done…)

Barbecue Sauce

1 cup honey

1/4 cup +2 TBSP molasses (it would have been 1/2 a cup, but that was all I could get out of the bottle)

1 1/4 cups homemade ketchup

1/4 cup red wine

1/4 cup white vinegar

1/2 tsp lime juice

2 1/2 tsp mustard powder

1 1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp onion powder

several dashes hot sauce (I used Frank’s)
