  • 1 1/2 cups Ketchup
  • 1 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Molasses
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Dry Mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika (regular can be substituted if needed)
  • 2 teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper


  • Combine all ingredients into a saucepan, stir to combine, and gently simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Allow to cool slightly, pour BBQ sauce into mason jar, cover with lid, and store in the refrigerator overnight to allow flavors to meld. 


If you are in a hurry, you can enjoy this BBQ sauce right away rather than letting it rest in the fridge overnight, however the flavor will be better in ANY BBQ sauce recipe that sits overnight.
THIS BBQ SAUCE would taste great on my BBQ Meatloaf recipe!
