Sweet And Spicy Jalapeno Barbecue Sauce

If you’re throwing a BBQ this summer, serving up ribs, a brisket, or maybe pulled pork sandwiches, do you really want to serve it up along side some store bought sauce? Making a barbecue sauce on your own is actually pretty simple, and can be prepared and done by the time your barbecued meat is ready to eat!Sweet And Spicy Jalepeño Barbecue Sauce #BBQ #Sauce #Spicy

The sauce I’m putting together is a tomato and vinegar based sauce, with the main ingredients being tomato sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar and jalapeno to give it a sweet, tangy and spicy flavor that everyone will love! This is my go to recipe for barbecue sauce and it goes great on my pulled chicken and Texas style ribs!

If I would categorize this sauce, I would say it’s close to a Texas Style sauce, which usually includes ingredients like tomato sauce, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, dry mustard, butter, Tabasco sauce, garlic cloves, chopped onions, salt, and usually some type of pepper to add heat. I think my sauce has a little more vinegar that a traditional Texas sauce, because I love the tangy flavor it adds! whatever you want to call this sauce, it’s just plain delicious!

Prep

I decided to roast the jalapeno to add a little smokiness and character to this sauce. It definitely adds something extra to this sauce that I enjoyed so I definitely recommend you do the same! Sweet And Spicy Jalepeño Barbecue Sauce #BBQ #Sauce #Spicy

Cooking

If you’re barbecuing, why not put this on the side burner? It will make running back and forth to a minimum, and you can site back relax with the kids in the backyard (Ha! Relax with the kids.) and keep an eye on both your meat and the sauce.

    How long can you store this in the fridge?

    • That’s a good question. I haven’t really tested it, because I don’t normally have too much leftover, but it should be safe for about 2 weeks in the fridge as long as its kept in a sealed container.

    I LOVE this! I just returned from the market with a bunch of jalapeno and hatch chiles… definitely need to save some to try this!

    This looks amazing! Making it today. Have you ever substituted butter for coconut oil or other oils?

  • Sean

    Can you taste the garlic powder in this or would minced garlic be better ? Thanks

    • I’d definitely give it a try, start with 2 cloves and see how that turns out!
