BBQ Bros Homemade BBQ Sauces!

A while back, I did a video series on my YouTube channel of my favorite 6 homemade BBQ sauces.  I’ve been meaning to compile all the videos along with the recipes into one post here on my blog for a while now and finally got around to it tonight.  Below you’ll find each of the 6 sauces, with the recipe and the corresponding video.  If you’re a big homemade BBQ sauce person, I’d love to hear what your favorite sauces are you like to make.  If you’d like to shoot me the recipe, I’ll try it out for myself and if I like it, it may just end up on my blog 🙂

All 6 of the sauces below are easy to make and don’t call for any ingredients that are tough to find.  More than likely, you’ve probably already got most ingredients in your kitchen pantry.  Hope you enjoy these.  Please be sure to check me out on YouTube and subscribe to my channel to stay updated on all my videos.  Thanks!

    I’ve never made home made bbq sauce before and it’s on my to try list. I think the raspberry one sounds really good! Thanks for the great list!

    Have you tried the DigiQ with the Smokenator?

    • Steve August 30, 2012 at 9:01 pm #

      Yes. I’ve tried it on a few cooks and it seems to work just fine. The vent hole that I mounted is opposite of the side I have the Smokenator mounted, so it blows air under and over to that side and seems to be doing a nice job of regulating the temp.

    That’s great, Steve. I was wondering how it would work, as I sometimes have temp regulating problems. Also, I wanted to try an overnighter and the 1 hour “coal tickle and water check dance” would be a problem.

    On the Raspberry BBQ Sauce, why not smoke the peppers before adding them to add that extra good flavor?
