Heirloom: Barbara’s Bbq Sauce

With summer soon approaching, thoughts of outdoors, sunshine, picnics & barbecues come to mind.  My heirloom recipe this month is my mom’s barbecue sauce.  She starting making this years ago & at the request of some of my dad’s co-workers at the time, she wrote it down.  This can be used many ways, but I like this best on chicken, grilled over open flames, smoked to perfection.  Fabulous!!!


2 c tomato sauce

6 oz tomato paste

1 c brown sugar

2 heaping tbsp prepared mustard

½ c molasses

1 ½ tsp salt

½ tsp pepper

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 ½ tsp liquid smoke

½ tsp chili powder

2 tsp vinegar/lemon juice

1 c ketchup


Mix all ingredients and slowly bring to a boil over medium-low heat; reduce heat to low & simmer 30 minutes, stirring every minute or so, so as not to burn.
