Recipe: Easy No-Cook BBQ Sauce
This is a classic barbecue sauce with a smoky, sweet, and tangy flavor. The best part is that it comes together quickly and requires no cooking! Use it in slow cooker recipes that call for BBQ sauce or for basting chicken or ribs on the grill. We also liked it as the sauce for BBQ chicken pizza!

- 3 Tbsp. light brown sugar

*You can substitute 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar and 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce for the powders + water in this recipe. Substitute BBQ seasonings suggestions with another of Savory's BBQ spice blends to explore different sauce flavors. Adapted from Martha Stewart’s Quick BBQ Sauce recipe.
Whisk all ingredients together with 3 Tbsp. of your favorite BBQ seasoning. The sauce is ready to serve right away and can be stored, sealed, and placed in the refrigerator for up to a week or more.
Use with grilled chicken, beef, or mushrooms for a classic BBQ flavor. Makes a great sauce for a BBQ chicken pizza.
