Honey Garlic Barbecue Sauce

Sweet Honey Garlic Barbecue Sauce

Original RecipeMy husband loves barbecue sauce, but not just any barbecue sauce. It has to be honey garlic barbecue sauce, which is why I came up with this recipe. This barbecue sauce is definitely on the sweet side, so if you like it a little less sweet feel free to reduce the honey or add more garlic/cayenne pepper. Our favorite thing to with this sauce is slather on slow baked barbecue baby-back ribs, but it’s also great on pulled pork, chicken or burgers.

Makes: 1.5 Cups
Total Time: 15 mins



  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dijon (or yellow) mustard
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 3 tbs fancy molasses




Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan.  Simmer on low heat for approximately 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.  If sauce becomes too thick, thin it out with a tablespoon or two of water until desired consistency is reached.

Barbecue sauce will become thicker as it cools.  Goes great with pulled pork, barbecue ribs and grilled chicken!
