Kansas City Style Barbeque Sauce Recipe
1-May-2010Posted by on
In preparation for my next attempt at smoking, I made some homemade BBQ Sauce. The good folks over at Smoker-Cooking.com were nice enough to post this recipe and I followed it to the letter. If the early reviews – quick tastes by my wife and brother – are any indication, this recipe is a winner!
- 1-1/2 cups of water
- 1/2 cups of your favorite ketchup (I used Heinz)
- 1/3 cups white vinegar
- 1/4 cup tomato paste
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 2 tablespoons of white sugar
- 1 teaspoon of Liquid Smoke flavoring
- 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder
- Add all of the ingredients to a saucepan.
- Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Be sure to stir regularly during this step so that all the ingredients combine well.
- Once the mixture is at a boil, reduce the heat to medium. Continue boiling until the sauce thickens. Stir regularly during this step. Thickening usually occurs after about 1/2-hour.
I took the author’s suggestion and let the sauce sit in the refrigerator overnight. You can serve right away however.
