Barbecue sauce is one of those things I’m kinda picky about. I don’t think I’m alone in this, either. There are as many BBQ sauce types, and flavor combinations that there are cuts of meat to pair them with.

I like my barbecue sauce, slightly sweet (but not overly syrupy), tangy and with a hint of smoke. I’ve made numerous batches of sauce, some great – like my Honey Bourbon BBQ Sauce, and others not so great. This homemade honey bbq sauce recipe is my new favorite, and I think it will be yours, too!

Here’s how to make bbq sauce from scratch:

If you're wondering how to make BBQ sauce from scratch, you've come to the right place! My super-simple Homemade Honey BBQ Sauce Recipe tastes absolutely incredible and the perfect way to make your own homemade BBQ sauce from scratch.

Step 1: Add all the ingredients to a sauce pan and simmer

Here’s the ingredients you’ll need for this honey BBQ sauce recipe:

  • 1 (8 oz.) can good quality tomato sauce (In a pinch, you can also substitute ketchup, but just know that most off-the-shelf ketchup contain high-fructose corn syrup.)
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Water
  • Good quality black-strap molassas
  • Good quality honey (I like to buy local, organic, raw honey, however use the best you can afford and what you have access to)
  • Soy Sauce
  • Yellow Mustart
  • Cumin
  • Liquid Smoke
  • Salt and Pepper

Whisk all of the ingredients together, and bring to a low-boil over medium-high heat. Once it is boiling, reduce the heat to low, and keep it on a low simmer.

Step 2: Simmer the sauce 

Once the sauce is at a low simmer, keep it there for approximately 35-40 minutes. As you first add the ingredients to the sauce pan, you’ll notice that the consistency is rather thin. As the sauce continues to simmer, the sauce will reduce down, become slightly thicker, and noticeably darker in color.

Step 3: Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature

Once the sauce is done simmering, and has reduced down, let it cool to room temperature. If you are using the sauce right away, divide the sauce. Place a portion of sauce (maybe a 1/2 cup) in a bowl/container that can be brushed on to meat that you are cooking, as to not contaminate the rest of the sauce. The remainder of the sauce will then be ready to serve at the table, or can be refrigerated for later use.

Step 4: Add to Grilled Chicken, Pork or Burgers
