If you're looking for a delicious all-purpose barbecue sauce, look no further. As with all sweet sauces, you must be careful during cooking. Use this sauce only during the last 5 minutes when grilling over direct heat; for indirect grilling, the sauce will be fine on the grill for up to half an house without burning.


  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey mustard
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Tabasco hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper


1. Combine all of the ingredients.
2. Use as directed in a recipe; can be stored in a tightly closed container in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.
