Barbecue Sauce

I make this easy barbecue sauce that is great for summer cookouts. It works good on chicken and pork, especially ribs, and can even use it on steaks. Use the cheapest brands for all the ingredients. It tastes better than any store-bought brand.


  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup mustard
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • a liberal dash of hot pepper sauce
  • 2 cups water


Mix and cook all the ingredients about 1 hour over low heat. The BBQ sauce will be thin, not thick, and can be brushed over grilling meats. Store in refrigerator in a container. Should last about 1 month.


OR, you can parboil ribs, chicken, etc. in the sauce, then use the remainder to brush on the cooking meat. However, if you par-cook any meat in the sauce, use it all up immediately on whatever you are cooking. Once it is used with meat, do not save it.
