My Best Barbecue Sauce Recipes

Top Secret BBQ Sauce Recipe

Award winning best barbecue sauce recipes like this one are usually kept secret but today we're in luck because I've managed to persuade one of my best pals to part with his secret.

In my opinion the best barbecue sauce recipes are also for barbecue pork ribs . The combination of flavors really enhances the flavor of the ribs, but doesn't overpower them. Am I right?

If like me you like a rich, thick barbecue sauce on your ribs, then this is the perfect one for you. By using chopped tomatoes and tomato puree instead of ketchup you get a richer flavor in your barbecue sauce.

Preparation Time:- 10 mins
Cooking Time:- 30 mins

Total Time:- 40 mins


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped onion

Fry gently for 2-3 minutes until the onions go clear, then add:-

  • 1 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tube tomato purée (between 150g - 200g)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dry English mustard
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ground black pepper to taste


Simmer for 20 – 30 minutes with the lid on. We don’t want to lose moisture but we do want the tomatoes to properly melt down.

Do I really have to tell you to brush it on the ribs?.......I thought not.


Do you need something quick and easy? If so try this:-

Preparation Time:- 5 mins
Cooking Time:- 15 mins

Total Time:- 20 mins


  • 2 cans tomato sauce (or jars of pasta sauce)
  • 3 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground basil
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper


Just throw everything together and stir!

Either heat up this sauce and pour on over the ribs or brush on in the final 15 mins of cooking. We want it to be dark and rich, not black and burnt so gently does it over medium coals.

I suppose by claiming that these are the best barbecue sauce recipes ever I’m leaving myself wide open to objections and argument. Well, if you know better, fill in the box below and let me know!
