How to make BBQ sauce at home

BBQ sauce, much like ketchup and mayonnaise, is an essential condiment at any British barbecue and if it’s very name doesn’t convince you of that then we don’t know what will.

Mouth-wateringly good on burgers, sausages and skewers of both the meaty and vegetarian variety, BBQ sauce is also an excellent condiment to have to have if you’re eating pizza and require a sauce in which to dunk your crust.

It is also a truth universally acknowledged that good BBQ sauce can only be bested by one thing – homemade BBQ sauce.

This recipe shows you how to make BBQ sauce at home in a few simple steps so you can enjoy a homemade condiment at your next back garden BBQ.
