A sweet mustard-based BBQ sauce with a bit of a bite, excellent on chicken and pork. Also makes a great dipping sauce for chicken fingers! Baste on meat while grilling or serve on the side. Will store covered in refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks.

Spicy and sweet and just the right amount of thickness. I used some to marinate center, thick cut pork chops and used the rest to coat after grilling. This recipe, made almost as listed (I added 1 T onion powder, but kept the rest of the listed ingredients the same), is going to be my go to recipe until I die. Read More

This was a very good sauce I will definitely make it again. I only used 1 tablespoon of garlic powder I thought Two would be too much. Read More

Loved it....I followed the receipt exactly except I put all in saucepan and heated initially. Very simple and a very tasty change to the tomato based bbq sauce I normally make. Read More

Good recipe different. I could not see shaking all in a jar so I heated slowly on the stovetop. Blended those flavors and allowed me to adjust to suit our bbq. Will make again thanks. Read More

I used smoked paprika - amazing! Took the advice to cut to 1Tbs garlic powder and it is still very garlicky (and good) Hits all the flavor notes for me - tangy sweet and spicy (which you can dial up and down with the cayenne to your liking...my family is fairly wimpy so we just add a pinch). So good! Read More

I cut up a small chicken and cooked it in the slow cooker with this sauce. It was delicious! I also found it very easy to make. I stopped buying BBQ sauces in the store when I started reading ingredients. I love making anything homemade, fewer ingredients and all real food. Read More

Sweet to start then tangy and finally the spice brings up the rear to really give this sauce a good finish Read More

SC is the birthplace of mustard-based BBQ sauce having likely been concocted by the Bessinger family in the 1930's in Holly Hill SC. Although there is some argument that the Sweatman family was making a similar sauce in that same timeframe. This is a pretty good general recipe for a mustard sauce. I still prefer our family's version but if you make this one you'll find it both tasty and authentic. Enjoy Read More
