DAVID’S Real BBQ Sauce

The right slather should taste rich, savory, and complex, not like smoky candy. This is so good you’ll never hit the bottle again.

What You’ll Need:

2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup minced onion
1/4 cup minced green pepper
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 Tbsp minced garlic Pinch kosher salt
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup water
6 Tbsp dark brown sugar
6 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup apple-cider vinegar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp molasses
2 Tbsp sambal chili sauce
2 Tbsp cayenne-pepper sauce, such as Frank’s Red Hot
2 Tbsp spicy brown mustard
1/2 Tbsp chili powder
1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/2 Tbsp liquid smoke (optional)

How to Make It:

Heat the oil in a large saucepan, and add the onion, green pepper, jalapeno, and garlic, cooking them until soft, about 10 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally. Pour the sauce into a container and set aside.
