Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Written by CMP on June 18, 2008

There are some quality prepared barbecue sauce products on the market these days (Stubbs is a brand I recommend) but, nonetheless, I prefer to make my own. This recipe was modified from the Kansas City Ribs recipe in Weber's Big Book of Grilling. I cut back on the ketchup and added some roasted peppers and a bit more onion.


  • 3 Tbs Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Medium Yellow Onion, diced
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, diced
  • 4 Yellow or Red Bell Peppers, Roasted and cut into teeny-tiny dice, or pureed.
  • 1 Cup Ketchup
  • 1 Cup Cider Vinegar
  • 1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
  • 6 Tbs Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Tbs Yellow Mustard
  • 3 Tbs Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbs Chili Powder
  • 1 Tsp Hot Sauce (Optional)

Roast and peel your peppers ahead of time.

Heat olive oil in a medium sauce pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, 2-3 minutes, then add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Apply generously to your favorite grilled meats. Can be refrigerated and stored for up to two weeks.
