Sweet BBQ sauce recipe

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I"m looking for a sweet sauce recipe, without a lot of heat. I've searched the forum, but the results for "sweet sauce" are overwelming. Anyone have a good recipe their willing to share?

I doctor up some Sweet Baby Rays and everybody I have fed it to loves it:


1 part Sweet Baby Rays

1/2 part cider vinegar

1/2 part apple juice

molasses to taste


Once it is heated up a bit taste it and then adjust the molasses and vinegar to your liking. It is a thin sweet and tangy sauce, but has wonderful depth from the molasses.

Here is one we stole from "America's Test Kitchen".  My other half likes it, I don't?  But :



1 Onion, minced & sweated        ½ C Catsup
4 C Chix Broth                           ½ C Tomato Paste
½ C Molasses                            1 TBS? Hot Sauce
1 C Dark Corn Syrup                  1 tsp? Garlic Powder
1 C Apple Cider Vinegar             1 C Root Beer
2 TBS Brown Mustard

Simmer 1 to 1 ½  hour


The question marks are places I would make changes, but then it wouldn't be so sweet any more?



And another sweet sauce recipe from another source, not tested by me:


Kansas City-Style Barbecue Sauce, makes 3 cups
2 cups ketchup
1 cup water
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 onion, finely sliced from root to tip (see Notes)
8 tbsp brown sugar
2 tbsp white sugar
1 1/2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tbsp ground mustard


Good luck and good smoking.
