Celeste's Barbecue Sauce

Okay, so after much experimentation, I finally got the perfect BBQ sauce recipe down. This is sweet, tangy and smoky with just a hint of heat. You will not be able to stop licking the spoon! 


Yields about 12 oz
  • 1 c onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1 2/3 c ketchup
  • 1/2 c vinegar
  • 1/3 c brown sugar
  • 1/3 c Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • Pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste

Saute onion and garlic in a sauce pan over medium heat until onion is tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Stir in the remaining ingredients.  Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Strain out the onions.
