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.



Combine sugar and spices together in a small bowl. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine ketchup, vinegar, water, and liquid smoke. 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.
