Petie's Top Secret Barbecue Sauce...shhh don't tell anyone, just make it your own...

Petrice Balkan


I've been making this BBQ sauce off of the top of my head for years. My kids want me to write it down. It's just hard because it gets to the right taste (I call it it's tang) as I season and taste it. So that's why I said in the recipe title, "make it your own". Enjoy! PS I make a lot of sauce for 1 recipe - we just like it that way.

4 Tbsp
white vinegar or more if you like the tang!
1/2 c
brown sugar (or more if you like sweet tang!
shakes parsley
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
dried mustard (i don't use because family doesn't like taste)

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix all together early in the day and let sit all day. If it's a bit runny, you can add more brown sugar if you want. It brews into a tangy delicious sauce that is good on everything!
This was done from memory so may take you a few trials. I'll make BBQ sauce soon and re-check my measurements that came from my brain..... good luck!
