Homemade Barbeque Sauce Recipe

I am often asked, "How do you make your own homemade barbecue sauce?" My answer is...it's really simple to make your own and it's much cheaper than the store bought sauce.

By making your own sauce, you save money and you control the ingredients. Here is my favorite barbecue sauce recipe that is great for chicken and ribs.

Barbecue Sauce Recipe

1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
2 tablespoons minced onions
1 tablespoon brown sugar

Note: If you like your sauce sweet, increase the brown sugar by an additional tablespoon.

In a large saucepan, combine the ketchup, Worchestershire sauce, water and vinegar. Cook over medium heat for 2 minutes. Stir in granulated sugar, salt, black pepper, celery salt, minced onions and brown sugar. Simmer the sauce over low heat for 5 minutes.

Use: You can brush the sauce onto hamburgers and chicken for baking or grilling. This sauce is great on beef and pork ribs too.
