A customer submitted this quick and easy Kansas City style BBQ sauce...and we love it! You can easily adjust the sweet, spicy, and smoky flavors to your personal preference.



*Hickory smoke flavoring is strong, so use it sparingly; start with 1/8 tsp. and add more while cooking if more smoke flavor is desired. In place of the dry smoke flavoring, you can use ¾ tsp. liquid smoke (or more to taste); add it to the liquid ingredients.


Combine dry ingredients together in a small bowl. In a heavy bottomed saucepan, combine ketchup, vinegar, and water. Add dry ingredients and whisk thoroughly to combine. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and let simmer for about 15 min. Remove from heat and let cool completely before serving.

Serving Suggestions

Use as a dipping or basting sauce with your favorite BBQ fare.
