Wayne’s Barbecue Sauce

It just wouldn’t be a celebration around our place without my neighbor’s famous barbecue sauce!  Traditionally he brings a yummy sweet pickle potato salad and I make my dill pickle version.  The best thing ever, it all compliments everything.

I’ve been busy getting my contributions ready to go.  
Like I said, it wouldn’t be a party without…
Wayne’s Barbecue Sauce

 is quick, easy and extra good on beef, chicken, pork and hamburgers.

Chop onions, I like mine a little chunky.  Saute them in oil for about 20 to 30 minutes…
till they are soft and translucent.
Now add the remaining ingredients and let sauce simmer for about 30 more minutes.

Pour it in a bowl, and serve it up!
Wayne’s Barbecue Sauce
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 6 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 Tbsp. mustard
  • 6 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 6 Tbsp. sugar (or liquid stevia to taste)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper

Chop onion and saute over medium heat for 20 to 30 minutes until soft and translucent.  Add remaining ingredients and simmer on low heat for another 30 minutes, stirring often.  This is great on chicken, ribs and hamburgers.

Hope you enjoy it all, BBQs Forever

    Sounds good! I was determined to make my own B-B-Q sauces this summer! But somehow I have three open bottles of Sweet Bay Ray’s in the fridge-huh, something went wrong there!

    Looks delicious! We’re bottled sauce fans at my house. I grew up in Kansas City and we’re all about the Kansas City BBQ and sauce.

    Good morning, Gnee!

    This recipe is similar to one that my sister gave to me when I was first married. I remember typing it out on her ‘typewriter’ thirty plus years ago 🙂

    Although I have a favorite bottled BBQ sauce, I still love this one!

  4. Always Nesting

    That’s a great recipe. I’m saving. Hubby is the king of BBQ, famous among our friends and I know he will love this sauce.

    We’re huge BBQ fans around here. BTW… I need to try Stevia. I have yet to do so.

    I’m PLANNING to bring dessert to your blast, but it requires a little help from my friends. It will (hopefully) be there in time for dessert.
    Please don’t run out and buy some sort of sloppy substitute if I’m running late. Chuckle.

    YUM..and very much like mine, I put brown sugar in…makes the house smell so good doesn’t it! 😀

    I love homemade bbq sauce. This one looks delicious!!

    My favorite BBQ sauce is uses two Southeastern VA ingredients. Sauers Barbecue sauce and dark brown sugar–mix equal parts of each over low heat just until all the sugar is dissolved. Add as much Tabasco as you like. If you use a whole 8 oz. bottle of Sauers, 8 oz. of firmly packed dark brown sugar, and 1/4 cup (or more) of Tabasco, you will have a super quick and super yummy BBQ sauce!

    Yummy! Thanks for sharing.

    A great idea–homemade BBQ sauce! I’ve never tried this before, but I’m betting it’s really good. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

    How interesting! I’ve never made homemade bbq sauce (cept for white sauce, that is). Looks great!

    Thanks for linking up for Friday Favorites!
