Author Notes: About 10 years ago, I wanted to make my own BBQ sauce. I found a simple recipe with 5 ingredients, in an old magazine and since then, it has evolved into the following.
NOTE: * I also use dark soda, like a high end micro-brewed root beer (regular dark soda will work as well, like cola); any type of beer will; the darker the better.

Makes about 3 cups

  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 2 cups Kona Brewing Company’s Kona Coffee Pipeline Porter*
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup tangerine juice
  • 3 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar (can be light or golden brown as well)
  • 6 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce (equals: 1/4 Cup + 2 Tablespoons)
  • 2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 3 teaspoons sriracha or other hot sauce or to taste (can also use a chipotle pepper in adobo sauce or just the adobo sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dry ground ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed/mashed (1 Tbsp jarred crushed garlic or 1 tsp garlic powder also works)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat to medium low (temperature of stove may vary) and simmer, stirring frequently.
  3. Cook until sauce is reduced to about 3 cups and the consistency of barbeque sauce; in an airtight container, sauce can be stored in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

Thx Gingerroot! It's one of my faves; but the first time I drank it, I made the mistake of drinking it at night. ;)
