How to make barbecue sauce. Here’s another great barbecue sauce made with chili sauce – ketchup with a kick! It is a little spicy and very tasty. Use it on chicken, pork or beef. If you do not preserve it, cool it down completely and use it within two weeks.
This recipe uses Heinz chili sauce which is ketchup with added hot sauce. We will combine it with corn syrup, beer and more spices. The corn syrup will help the sauce thicken and will add sweetness.
If you like spicy bbq sauce this recipe is for you. It is loaded in flavor and finger-licking-good. It works great on food on the grill but also in the oven. Try it with some baked chicken legs or baked baby back ribs. Fantastic!
Here is how to make barbecue sauce:
Makes about four cups of sauce:
2 – 12 oz. bottles of Heinz chili sauce
1 ½ cups light corn syrup
1 – 12 oz. bottle beer
4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/8 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons cayenne
• Place all ingredients in a heavy pan. Whisk until well blended. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 to 35 minutes, until sauce thickens and turns dark – like bottled sauce. Stir occasionally.
• If preserving for gifts, heat jars per instructions and fill with sauce. If not, cool down completely and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
