There’s no substitution for great Barbecue Sauce! That’s a lesson I learned quickly while living in Texas a few years back.

Perhaps one of the greatest states for Barbecue, I came to realize that just as important as the meat, smoke, and wood, the right Barbecue sauce can make all the difference. That “right sauce” can also vary from place to place, and even person the person.

Whether sweet, sassy, smokey, spicy, or tangy, lathered up or barely even on, the sauce is really what makes the meal. Find the right combination and you’re locked into Barbecue Bliss! Get it wrong, and, well, you just may be packing your bags and heading back to momma’s house! Today we definitely got it right!

1 1/4 cup Honeyville Tomato Powder
1 cup Water
1 cup Light Corn Syrup
1 cup + 2 Tbsp White Vinegar
2 Tbsp Apple Cider
2 Tbsp White Sugar
6 Tbsp Brown Sugar
4 Tbsp Soy Sauce
2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Onion Powder

Place a medium sauce pan on your stove top and heat at medium-low.

Combine all ingredients and stir continually.

Make sure to keep stirring at medium heat for 15-20 minutes, or until you feel the ingredients are completely combined and the texture is to your liking.

Take off heat, cover, and let cool for 15 minutes or so.

Remove, store in container of your choosing, or use it immediately on your favorite foods.

The taste of this sauce is simply out of this world! The flavor combination hits your palate like troopers storming a beach, with the perfect blend of sweet and savory.
