Usually, when I am grilling or baking meats that require BBQ sauce, I use a store-bought sauce and give it a “boost”. Usually, they are too sweet for my taste, so I try to cut the sweetness, or they are not spicy enough, so I bring up the heat. Most times, I end up making my own barbecue sauce, just the way I like it!

This recipe is very easy and quick to make. It uses all store-bought ingredients, so there is only dumping in a bowl and mix. That easy! And it is so delicious, you can use it on ribs, chicken, wings, pork or even on vegetables. It is not very sweet, with a little spiciness to give it some kick!

  • Sweetness – if the sauce is not sweet enough for you, add a 1/4 cup of brown sugar or honey.
  • Heat – not hot enough, increase the chili garlic sauce to your taste.
  • Smoke – this recipe has a hint of smoke added to your grill or bake. If you prefer a stronger smoke flavor, you can always double the liquid smoke. I would not use more than that or the other ingredients are going to be lost in the smokiness.
