Barbecue sauce is a savory condiment often served with grilled meals. You may make it tangy, hot, or sugary, and there are no limits to the combinations you can create. Red, or tomato-based, Dijon-based, vinegar-based and white sauces are the four most common varieties of barbecue condiments, and each has its own distinct flavor. And, let’s not forget, for all of your Fourth of July backyard grills, what better accompaniment than a homemade sauce!

White barbecue sauces are not as intensely colored as the ones, which tend to have a deep reddish or brown color. Some white sauce variations for example, are made using mayo as the sauce’s primary constituent. White barbecue sauces are less popular than black barbecue sauces, yet they go well with barbecued meats.

How to Make Homemade Barbecue Sauce

What You’ll Need

  • Two cups of your preferred ketchup for this recipe’s foundation. Try to use one that contains no high-fructose corn syrup and has the fewest components possible.
  • Adding apple cider vinegar gives the sauce a tart, delightful taste that is just the right amount of acidity.
  • 1/4 cup of brown sugar to offer a touch of molasses taste and help sweeten this condiment.
  • Two or three teaspoons of your preferred honey.
  • Saltiness and sweetness are well-balanced by Worcestershire sauce in this sauce. Use coconut amino instead of Worcestershire sauce if you’re gluten intolerant.
  • Salt, black pepper, and garlic are combined to create a flavorful seasoning that may be used on a wide variety of foods.
  • This sauce would not be complete without a tablespoon of lemon juice.
  • Add a little bit of spicy sauce to our BBQ Sauce recipe for a little bit of zing if you prefer.

Whisking Up Your Sauce

The BBQ sauce should be boiled and ready to use immediately. In a pan, combine the ingredients and bring to a boil. After bringing the sauce to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer and let it cook for approximately 8 minutes. Intensifying and thickening the sauce are two of the benefits of this method.
