Serves: 700ml

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 1.5 – 2 hours


30ml TABASCO® Sauce

530g ketchup

40g tomato purée

360ml apple cider vinegar

60g yellow mustard

8g garlic powder

8g salt

240ml water

454g light brown sugar

8g ground black pepper

10g cayenne pepper


Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan.

Bring to the boil quickly, stirring constantly, and then lower heat to a simmer.

Cook slowly until the sauce becomes thick, glossy and a deep burgundy colour (it should reduce by a little more than a third).

Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Serve alongside any barbecued meats; smoked Jacob’s Ladder ribs go really well with this sauce.

Spicy BBQ sauce

made with Tabasco

“This is a great staple to add to anyone’s smoking, grilling or barbecuing repertoire. It gets its flavourful kick from TABASCO® Sauce, creating a great BBQ sauce with a punch!”

- Chef Brad McDonald, Shotgun, London.
