Homemade All American BBQ Sauce

Labor Day weekend always reminds me of time with family and friends - BBQ’s and grill outs.  In honor of the holiday, I decided to make a homemade BBQ sauce for my BBQ chicken.  It turned out so creamy, rich, and had a fabulous ZIP! to it.  Trust me, after trying homemade BBQ sauce – you’ll never go back to the jar!  The way it makes your kitchen smell alone is worth the effort.

My BBQ Sauce Recipe:

  1. 1 cup ketchup
  2. 6 oz tomato paste
  3. 1 cup tomato sauce
  4. 2 cup apple cider vinegar
  5. 1/4 cup Worcestershire
  6. 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  7. 1/2 brown sugar
  8. 1 tablespoon Dijon 
  9. 1.5 teaspoon ground ginger
  10. 3 garlic cloves – roughly chopped
  11. 1/2 lemon – sliced in rounds

Combine ingredients 1-7 in stove pot, mix with whisk and bring to simmer.  Mix in ingredients 8-11 and simmer for 20 minutes.

Pour over chicken pieces or ribs (marinate if desired).  For chicken – cook @ 350 degrees for 20 minutes, baste with sauce again and finish cooking another 15-20 minutes until chicken is done.
