Stir it right up in the jar in just 5 minutes! Everyone needs a good barbeque sauce to use all summer!

5 Minute BBQ Sauce

A summer staple…and an updated recipe post!

When the girls were much younger, this was one of the very first recipes to ever hit my blog, and it was time for a photograph update!

5 Minute BBQ Sauce

Why homemade?

Store bought barbeque sauce is not only full of high fructose corn syrup in most cases, but also MSG and other preservatives that are completely unnecessary. MSG is an excitotoxin, and is linked to migraines and mood changes among other things, and in a lot of kids it can cause behavior problems. It’s just not worth it. Years later, I do have to say there are so many cleaner options for BBQ sauce on the store shelves than back then, but we use this super yummy barbeque sauce all summer. It tends to be a little better on the budget than some of the cleaner options, and it just doesn’t get any easier to prep!

5 Minute BBQ Sauce

It doesn’t get any easier!

This barbeque sauce comes together in 5 minutes! That’s it! No cooking, no chopping, no simmering, no fuss! It is perfect for brushing on your grilled chicken/burgers (or a whole spatchcock chicken!), dipping your chicken nuggets or french fries, spreading on a wrap, or using for a shredded BBQ beef or chicken! Play around with the seasonings to your taste and fire up the grill!

  1. Do you think this would freeze and defrost well? I was thinking about making a larger batch and freezing for later. 🙂

  2. Do you know if this tastes like Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce? I need to replace that brand in our house.

    As a side note, I freeze my homemade barbecue sauce and it does very well.

  3. 5 stars
    This sauce was great! I had it with some shredded pork we smoked a few weeks ago, froze out in portions. Made for such and easy meal!

  4. 5 stars
    This is my go-to BBQ sauce. It is truly delicious with a minimum of ingredients. I tend to make more than I need….also buy in bulk….how long will this stay good in the fridge? Thanks!
