My husband loves to experiment in the kitchen with a few things. BBQ is one of them. I finally got him to measure and write down his recipe for homemade BBQ sauce.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This BBQ sauce has just the right bite. It definitely has some heat for those who like it ... but not enough to scare others away.


1/2 large
yellow onion, chopped
green onions, chopped
1/2 c
Vlasic hot pepper rings, chopped and 2 tablespoons juice
2 bottle
Kraft hickory smoke bbq sauce
1 3/4 c
packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp
French's prepared yellow mustard
1 tsp
garlic powder
2 tsp
ground black pepper
4 tsp
tabasco sauce
8 oz


1In a deep saucepan, sauté both types of onions in a little olive oil until tender over medium-high heat.
2Add the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low and continue to simmer until mixture has thickened, about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. Keep refrigerated.
