Homemade Barbeque Sauce

Lynn demonstrates how to make a delicious and simple homemade barbeque sauce that comes from her mother-in-law.  This was the only barbeque sauce that she used for ribs, chicken or whenever she needed barbeque sauce for a dish.  

If you want to make a gallon:

  • 2 bottles (14 ounces) ketchup
  • 1 bottle (12 ounce) chili sauce
  • 1/3 cup prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1-1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups cider vinegar
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup bottled thick steak sauce
  • ½ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 can (12 ounces) beer
  • Dash of Tabasco sauce, or to taste, optional

Pour everything in a big bowl, whisk until all incorporated and smooth.  Store in refrigerator until ready to use.

If you want to make a smaller amount -- I cut the recipe to make about 3-1/4 cups, use these amounts:

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup chili sauce
  • 4 teaspoons prepared yellow mustard
  • ¾ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/8 cup thick steak sauce
  • 1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • ½ cup beer
  • Dash of Tabasco sauce, or to taste, optional

Follow the same directions as listed above.
