Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce 


I have been on a BBQ sauce kind of roll these days. I truly enjoy everything about making it. The smell, the taste testing, the way the sauce completely transforms from a loose mix of ingredients to a beautiful, thick blend which will beautifully compliment fall off the bone BBQ pork back ribs. ( Yup my mouth is watering! )

This recipe does make a fairly large batch and can be frozen or if you’re like me and also love canning, this recipe can easily be doubled or tripled and canned.

  • 1 3/4 cups ketchup
  • 1/3 cup lightly packed brown sugar
  • 5 1/2 tbs molasses
  • 3 tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 2 1/2 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 3 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 5 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/4 – 1 tsp cayenne, according to heat preference
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tbs oil
  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook onions for 3 minutes or until tender. 
    1. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
    2. Add all other ingredients and mix well.
    3. Cover with a lid or splatter lid, reduce heat a bit so thensauce is at a medium simmer.
    4. Simmer until sauce is reduced to half. Approximately 30 minutes. 
    5. Remove from heat and using an immersion blender, blend the sauce until smooth.
    6. Will keep for 1 month in the fridge and is excellent for canning!
