In preparing a post on slow cooker brisket, I found an unforgivable hole in my blog. I do not have a Barbecue Sauce. This is to be corrected, immediately.
Barbecue sauce (also abbreviated as BBQ sauce) is a sauce used as a marinade, basting, condiment, or topping for meat cooked in the barbecue cooking style, including pork or beef ribs and chicken. It is a ubiquitous condiment in the Southern United States and is used on many other foods as well.
Ingredients vary, but most include vinegar, tomato paste, or mayonnaise (or a combination) as a base, as well as liquid smoke, onion powder, spices such as mustard and black pepper, and sweeteners such as sugar or molasses.
Basic Barbecue Sauce
- 1 ea Yellow Onion Peeled, Minced
- 2 tsp Minced Garlic
- 1 cup Ketchup
- 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar

- 1 tsp Liquid Smoke
- 1 tbsp Bourbon
- 3 tbsp Brown Sugar
- 2 tbsp Yellow Mustard
- 1 tsp Black Pepper
- Kosher Salt To Taste
- 2 tbsp neutral oil
