BBQ Sauce Using Tomato Soup

In 1964 a friend gave me a barbecue sauce recipe. It was mild and just the best sauce. Somewhere along the line I lost the recipe. I've done searches on the web, but can't find it, and it is impossible to locate my friend. The sauce had a bottle of catchup and a can of tomato soup in it. I can't remember the rest of the ingredients. If anyone has the recipe, I'd sure love to have it.

I don't know if this is the recipe you're looking for as it uses tomato juice rather than soup but it sounds similar. It's a bit 'sharp' so I tend to cut down the vinegar, but it makes a great sauce! From my grandmother's 1950 Betty Crocker cookbook:

Texas Barbecue Sauce ("For ribs")

Mix together and simmer 15 minutes-

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 Tbsp. paprika

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. dry mustard

1/4 tsp. chili powder

1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup vinegar

1 cup tomato juice

1/4 cup catsup

1/2 cup water

If you can recall a particular brand name mentioned in the recipe, try contacting that same company.

Since I have done long searches on the web and can't come up with the recipe, I've come to believe that my friend 'invented' her BBQ sauce, so I think I will invent my own using a combination of ingredients from your recipes. Thank you so much for the input.

None of the recipes are a BBQ sauce using solely tomato soup. The original recipe was on a Campbell's tomato soup can.
