This is the best homemade BBQ sauce recipe that I’ve tried by far! Once you try it, you may never buy store-bought BBQ sauce again. Not only is it super easy to make, inexpensive, and delicious, you can also freeze the leftovers in small ziploc bags to be used another time, if you make more than you can eat within a week.
Homemade BBQ Sauce Recipe
Makes 4 cups
- 3 c. ketchup
- 2 c. brown sugar
- 3 Tbsp liquid smoke
- 1 tsp salt
Simply mix all ingredients together over low heat until thoroughly combined and heated through. It’s that easy!
My favorite way to use this BBQ sauce is over chicken breasts in the crockpot. Just cook over low heat for about 8 hours, or until the chicken is cooked, then shred the chicken up and add more sauce. SO GOOD. I usually serve shredded BBQ chicken on homemade rolls. It’s also super yummy over meatballs.
