There’s not a lot that you can buy at the grocery store that you cannot make yourself with a few common household ingredients.  Learning how to make homemade barbecue sauce couldn’t be easier. And, it tastes so much better than anything you can buy at the grocery store.   You can make up a batch of homemade barbecue sauce quickly. And, then store it in the refrigerator, tightly sealed, up to a month.   We enjoy homemade barbecue sauce on ribs, chicken, and steak.  I add a bit on top of meatloaf sometimes to give it some extra zip. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

How To Make Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Now, this homemade barbecue sauce is a bit spicy with the addition of hot sauce.  If you don’t like spicy food, you may want to tone down the amount of hot sauce you add to your homemade barbecue sauce. If you prefer a spicy barbecue sauce recipe, instead of using yellow mustard in this recipe, you can use spicy mustard or even Dijon mustard. This barbecue sauce has about a medium heat intensity. If you want it super spicy, this is THE best hot sauce I’ve used.
