BBQ sauce recipe

Our Favorite BBQ Sauce Recipe: (great on burgers)


  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Liquid Smoke
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

    In a small saucepan, combine the first 10 ingredients. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat

    Place chicken in container and pour BBQ sauce over your chicken, reserving some of the BBQ sauce for basting. Turn chicken over to coat well. Let marinade at least 30 minutes.

    Bake chicken in 375 degree oven for 30 minutes.  I struggle with getting chicken fully cooked on the grill so we bake it a bit first.   We usually put a rub like Emril’s Essence on the chicken before baking. 


    Preheat outdoor grill for medium-low heat. Spray rack lightly with oil spray to prevent sticking. Place chicken on grill rack and grill about 5 minutes, basting with remaining BBQ sauce as you desire. Turn chicken over and cook on other side about 5 minutes more or until juices run clear.


    Happy Grilling,
