The Most Popular and Highest Rated BBQ Sauce Recipes

I've scoured the internet and BBQ cook books looking for the highest rated and most popular BBQ sauce recipes. Hundreds of hours have been invested in testing recipes and coming up with a list where each recipe offers a unique flavor. From spicy to sour, sweet to mustard, and Cola to Whiskey, these sauce recipes are the best of the best. Try anyone of these sauces and you will never buy bottled sauce again.

Killer Bacon Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Killer Bacon Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce

This is my absolute favorite BBQ sauce to make and serve over smoked baby back ribs. This 5 Star recipe will ensure all your ribs get eaten quickly! I originally found this recipe on Chow. It's extremely popular with many variations available. I've modified it a bit and in my opinion it's perfect!

  • 4 - 6 Strips Thick diced bacon
  • 1/2 cup finely diced red onion (about 1/2 small onion)
  • 2 medium garlic cloves pressed or chopped
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika or regular paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • Kosher salt (at the end)
  • Freshly ground black pepper (at the end)

Instructions

  1. Put the chopped up bacon in a saucepan and cook it until the fat has rendered and it looks cooked (7 - 10 minutes over medium heat).
  2. Remove the bacon and place it on a paper towel to drain the grease.
  3. Add the onion to the bacon fat and cook it over low heat for about 5 minutes or until the onion is cooked.
  4. Add the pressed garlic and cook for another minute. Be sure to not burn the garlic!
  5. Stir in the remaining ingredients, including the bacon that has been put aside. Increase the heat to medium-low and stir the sauce occasionally until it thickens.

This sauce will keep well if it's refrigerated for over 1 week and for 4 - 6 weeks if it's been stored in the freezer.

Tips

  • This sauce can be made in a Vitamix. The bacon and onion still need to be fried first and the grease drained before adding to the blender. Let it run on high for five minutes. The sauce will be thick and sticky.

A bit about Sweet Asian BBQ Sauce: AKA Edmondson Secret Sauce

My family version of this recipe for bbq sauce has been around for several years, and we often call it Edmondson Secret Sauce. This barbecue recipe creates a sweet and spicy sauce that is Asian in style. The original version of this recipe rose in popularity during the 1960s as Asian style cuisine fused with Californian flavors.

The Asian flavor comes from the the soy sauce, the sweetness from the brown sugar and ketchup, and the spice is from the ginger. Optionally, a fruit preserve can be added for a fruit taste with more sugar. It's very easy to make bbq sauce, and as long as you have all the ingredients on hand, you can make it in about 10 minutes. For those wanting a Sweet BBQ sauce, this hits the mark.

  • 1 white onion, medium to large
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry or fresh ginger, fresh ginger is best because it is spicier
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup white wine or sherry, any white wine
  • 1/4 cup apricot perserves, apricot, apple, cherry, or blackberry can be used
  • 2 cloves garlic

Instructions for Sweet Asian Barbecue Sauce

  1. Peel and slice the onion in half and put in a blender.
  2. Add the soy sauce to the onion in the blender.
  3. If using fresh ginger, remove the skin with a peeler and slice approximately a one tablespoon chunk into the blender. Add more ginger for a heavier spice flavor.
  4. Add the ketchup, packed brown sugar, sherry or white wine, garlic, and the optional preserves to the blender.
  5. Blend the sauce on high until the onion and ginger are completely pureed. The sauce should thicken and be a medium brown color. Taste.
  6. Transfer the sauce from the blender to a saucepan.
  7. Over a low heat, cook the sauce for about five to ten minutes until the sauce simmers down and thickens.
  8. The sauce is ready to use. It can be stored in the refrigerator for three weeks or frozen up to six months, but it's best fresh!

Espresso Coffee BBQ Sauce

Espresso Coffee BBQ Sauce: So Easy a Kid Can Make It!

While I really love my homemade sauce, there are several others that are delicious as well. One of my favorites is by Michael Chiarello from the Food Network. His sauce has a unique coffee flavor as one of the ingredients is a shot of espresso. I've made this recipe several times, and people really love the sauce and it's easy to make at home. This sauce is given very high marks online with an average rating of 4 - 5 stars.

One of my all-time favorite dinners, I was running behind and I pointed two of our friends daughters to this recipe and they made it beautifully. Nice Job Madison an Clayton. I now like to say this recipe is so easy a 14 year old can make it perfectly.

  • 4 large cloves of mashed or minced garlic
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 2 cups honey (really, 2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon grey salt
  • 1/2 cup of strong coffee or espresso
  • Fresh ground black pepper

Mash garlic with the side of a knife and then mince finely to release oils. Add olive oil to a preheated sauté pan. Add the garlic and sauté until it gets light brown, about 1 minute. Add cider vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, and honey and stir well. Add a pinch of grey salt then whisk in the coffee. Add freshly ground black pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer and simmer for 10 minutes.
Let cool and store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Tips

  • This sauce has a strong vinegar taste, but is very mild (not spicy and kid safe) and perhaps the easiest sauce to make because it has so few spices.
  • Goes really well on pork tenderloin, pork ribs and chicken

Hot and Spicy BBQ Sauce

Hot and Spicy BBQ Sauce

You know what they say. Play with fire and you'll get burned. This sauce can be made hot. Real hot! Be careful. And, remember, if you want it hotter just add some habanero pepper strips! While I mention the heat in this sauce, it's balanced out with the sweet from the molasses. This sauce is my wife's favorite! I haven't found a more popular or higher rated spicy BBQ sauce. If you want spicy, this is the best recipe you will find!

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup molasses (depending on how sweet you like it, add or subtract the amount of molasses)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce or for a hotter sauce 2 habanero peppers sliced in strips and seeds removed
  • 4 tablespoons distilled vinegar or apple cider vinegar (slightly different flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash salt

Instructions

  1. Heat the canola oil over low to medium heat.
  2. Add the garlic and onions and cook for 5 - 7 minutes. Don't burn them!
  3. Reduce the heat to a low simmer.
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and let it simmer until the sauce thickens. Stir occasionally. This is about 20 minutes.

Tips

  • Add small amounts of chili powder or more peppers to increase the heat.
  • This is a thick and sticky sauce.
  • WARNING: This sauce is too hot for most children.

Whiskey BBQ Sauce

Whiskey BBQ Sauce - The World's Most Popular BBQ Sauce Recipe

I originally found this recipe on All Recipes and modified it to my likings using many of the tips others have suggested. This is a classic and the most popular 5 star sauce with Whiskey you can find online. This sauce is so popular that it may actually be the single most popular homemade recipe sauce in the world. The popularity makes sense. People love it! What's different about this sauce is that it's a very balanced sauce. It's not as sweet as most of the others in the list or as spicy, but it's an exceptional all around sauce.

  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic pressed
  • 3/4 cup bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons liquid smoke flavoring
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 teaspoon Tobasco sauce, or to taste

Instructions

  1. In a large size saucepan over medium heat, add the onion, garlic and whiskey. Sauté them for about 7 to 10 minutes. Make sure that they are cooked, but not burned.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients, reduce the heat and let it simmer while stirring occasionally. After about 20 minutes the sauce should thicken and be ready to serve.

Tips

  • For people that like a smooth sauce, put the onion through a food processor, high powered blender (Vitamix) or cut the onion in thick pieces to strain out after cooking.
  • Make sure to let it simmer or the whiskey flavor will be really strong.
  • Chicken can marinade in this sauce for 24 hours
  • Use pepper sauce as a Tobasco substitute
  • Cook the sauce in a crockpot and have it ready when you return

The Best Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce there is!

Sweet, Tangy with Spicy Finish BBQ Sauce

For those that like tang, this is the highest rated sauce I've found. This sauce is a little less sticky and thick and it reminds me of a BBQ joint we once hit in the south outside of New Orleans. I also really tend to like sauces that avoid liquid smoke. This one is all natural! Just so you know what to expect, like the name implies, at first taste it is sweet and tangy. The apple cider vinegar and juice provide the tangy flavor. Then like a glass of robust wine, the spice kicks in on the finish!

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion chopped, food processed or blended
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan melt the butter. Add the onion and cook for 7 to 10 minutes over medium heat.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. Stir them in and let them simmer over a low heat for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Tips

  • Goes great on chicken and pork.
  • Add two cloves of fresh garlic (pressed)
  • Bottle the sauce and place it in refrigerator for 24 hours (Sauce is better the second day).
  • Adjust the spice level with more or less Cayenne pepper and Chili Powder (This sauce has some kick)

Mustard BBQ Sauce

Mustard BBQ Sauce

I was turned on to mustard bbq sauce when I started barbecuing a lot more salmon. Mustard sauces can be really simple and still provide a lot of great flavor and a nice change of pace. This works well on salmon, pork, chicken and beef. Give it a go!

  • 1 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring it to a slow boil and then let it simmer for five to ten more minutes.

Tips

  • For people that are allergic to tomatoes this tomatoe-less sauce is a nice option
  • Add 1/2 minced sauted onion to round out the flavor
  • Goes really nicely on grilled salmon

Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce

Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce

Many of the great bbq chefs have their roots in Kansas City Missouri. The sauces are thick and sticky and when combined with the smoke of a great hardwood (oak), the results are magical. If you're barbecuing with charcoal, there is an optional smoke ingredient, but my recommendation is to forego the added smoke flavor and go with smoking chips or better yet, small oak logs for a true Kansas City style BBQ.

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup dark molasses
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mace (1/4 teaspoon nutmeg can be substituted for mace)
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan, add all the ingredients and cook for 5 minutes over a medium heat and then let it simmer for another 15 over a low heat. Once it's nice and thick, it's ready.

Tips

  • Make it 24 hours in advance and let it sit in a sealed jar in the refrigeration. With resting time the flavors meld and pop.
  • This will keep for two plus weeks in the refrigerator and 6 to 8 weeks in the freezer.
  • This bbq sauce works great in baked beans

Coca Cola BBQ Sauce

I figured someone must have been a little short on sugar and wanted to add a bit of sweet and acidic flavor and said, "What the heck, let's throw some coca cola in the sauce." As they say, necessity is the mother of invention. This sauce is really tasty and pretty unique. The A1 sauce combined with the Coke makes for a darker colored and thinner style sauce that is loaded with flavor. This may be the easiest sauce to make as well.

  • 1 cup Coca-Cola
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke (optional)
  • 1/4 cup A-1 steak sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients to a large size saucepan. Let it simmer for 20 minutes. Once it reduces, it's ready to let it cool and serve.

Tips

  • This can be stored in sealed jars in the refrigerator for over two months.
  • It goes great with chicken, ribs, and pork.

Sweet and Sour (Chili) BBQ Sauce

Sweet and Sour BBQ Sauce

I really wanted to try a recipe that had some sour to it. The lemon in this recipe adds a bit of tartness that works well with the vinegar, and brings out a nice balance to the sweetness, but it's the chili sauce that makes the flavor and texture unique. Depending on how long the sauce is reduced, it can be served wet (runny) to thick.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1⁄2 cup chili sauce
  • 1⁄2 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1⁄2 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons juiced lemon
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Instructions

  1. In a good sized saucepan, sauté the onion for 5 and then add the garlic in the olive oil. Cook until the onion is clear.
  2. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and let the sauce simmer for 20 minutes.

Tips

  • Works great on chicken, pork ribs and pulled pork.
  • Reduce longer if a thicker sauce is desired.

Memphis Style Sauce

Memphis Style BBQ Sauce

I originally wanted to find an authentic Memphis style BBQ sauce. While most people think of dry rubs, this recipe brings out some very complex flavors that are commonly found in the Memphis style rubs. This is one of my favorite sauces and it's now my go to sauce for pulled pork. This was originally a five star rated sauce that I heated up a little by adding more crushed red pepper. Enjoy!

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 finely chopped small onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 3 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons molasses (substitute maple syrup)
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard

  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoons liquid smoke (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)

Instructions

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and reduce the heat to low. Let the sauce simmer for about 20 minutes or until it thickens up.

Tips

  • Leave out the red pepper and this sauce is very mild so that kids love it, yet sophisticated enough for adults.
  • Use a splash screen on your skillet as the sauce simmers to prevent splattering.
  • Goes great on pulled pork

Korean BBQ Sauce

Korean BBQ Sauce

This is a really versatile sauce that can work well on shrimp, pizza, salmon, chicken wings. Just about anything. I found this a bit ago on littlespicejar. It's the highest rated Korean Style sauce I've found. I've tried several other similar recipes and this one in our tests is the best.

  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

I will test your sauce and will claim it as my own if good and give out your address if not:) Great hub...thanks for sharing.
