BBQ Sauce Recipes

KC Masterpiece

KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce is my favorite.  This recipe was found at (search on KC Masterpiece).  Frankly I don't think it tastes like KC Masterpiece but it is an awesome sauce that I have used with baby back ribs,  pulled pork, and brisket with excellent results.

3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup tomato paste (6 oz)
1/2 cup vinegar
3 tablespoons molasses
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over high heat and whisk until smooth.
2. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 to 60 minutes or until mixture is thick.
3. Cool, then store in a covered container in the refrigerator overnight so that flavors can develop.

Makes 1 ½ cups.


The recipe is from Jeff, a family friend, who loves baby back pork ribs.  He says that the sauce is supposed to be similar to the Montgomery Inn's sauce.  They were the best ribs I have ever had.

24 ounces ketchup
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup sugar
1 medium onion chopped
½ cup vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
½ tablespoon chili powder (original recipe said 2 TBS's but that's too hot for us!)
1 tablespoon garlic salt
A few drops of Tabasco sauce

Blend the ingredients in a food processor ( if you don't have a food processor just cut the onions small).  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes (or until the correct consistency).  Baste the baby back pork ribs the last 5-10 minutes of cooking.  The sauce is best when brushed on after cooking.

Wild Wailua BBQ Sauce

We got this recipe from the Kona Brewery in Hawaii.  Try it on ribs or chicken for a tasty, sticky, slightly spicy meal.

1 large yellow onion
6 garlic cloves
1 1/2 TBS fresh ginger
2 TBS vegetable oil
1/2 cup Wheat Ale (or any other beer)
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup cider vinegar
6 TBS soy sauce
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1  1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chipotle chile powder
1 tsp ground allspice
3/4 tsp black pepper

Chop onion, doesn't have to be real small.  Mince garlic and ginger.  Sautee onion, garlic and ginger in oil in a 2 quart sauce pan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 6 minutes.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes.  Let sauce cool then puree in a blender until smooth.  Grill ribs or chicken, basting with sauce.  Set aside 1/2 cup of sauce and serve alongside finished meat.
