Joe's STOLEN BBQ Sauce Recipe


  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 5 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Grippos BBQ Seasoning (the not so secret ingredient)
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to simmer. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently (I set a timer for 15 minutes), for 1 hour 15 minutes.

Has to be Grippos (it's a local Cincinnati Company...you can order online if you are out of the market)
