Kick the Can BBQ Sauce

This is a somewhat mild bbq sauce that I originally found in the Fanny Farmer cookbook and over the years have tweaked to make it what it is today.

Optional additions are: rum, honey or if you really want a hotter sauce, swap out the chili powder and put in red pepper powder. I did that once not realizing that chili powder and red pepper powder are two different animals. Hot! Called that particular sauce, Snowball's Hellfire BBQ Sauce...everyone else liked it, but it was too hot for me.

How to Make Kick the Can BBQ Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium sauce pan on medium heat, melt butter and add onion, garlic and salt. Let saute until onion starts to go translucent.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and stir to blend and then let let it simmer, stirring occasionally until sauce has reduced a little and thickened. About 30 minutes to an hour. If you want a thicker sauce you can add about a tablespoon or two of corn starch. You can use right away, or store in air tight container. Will keep in the refrigerater about a month. We never have left overs of this sauce though.
