This sweet and spicy BBQ sauce is the perfect addition to any summer backyard grill out!
For Memorial Day we spent a few days in Park City Utah, one of my favorite places in the whole entire universe. Other than a dip in the hot tub, some outlet shopping, and a whole lot of relaxing… we didn’t do much else. In other words, the weekend went exactly as I hoped it would.
I made this Dallas style BBQ sauce for one of our dinners up in Park City. We had burgers and brats and what goes better with a grilled burger than homemade BBQ sauce?? Absolutely nothing. The inspiration for this recipe came from a trip to Dallas Texas my husband and I took just a couple weeks after we were married. We had some G double-o D BBQ while we were down there and the sauces were mind-blowingly tasty. This one has a little sweet, a little heat, and loads of yummy BBQ flavor. Make it – you’ll love it!
What people are saying about this Dallas BBQ Sauce
“I made this for a Marching Band Competition, I was feeding 180 people pulled pork sandwiches. We had 2 bottles of store bought sauce, and a triple batch of this recipe. We were scraping the bottom of the bowl to get to the rest of this. I had many people ask for the recipe, but I like to hoard my finds to myself…Oh well, I may share.” – Lisa
“Good recipe. I didn’t have the onion powder so i used half a white onion instead. It Tasted Good, even my picky daughter liked it. I will definitely be using this one again. Thank you!” – Serena
“Just made this. I left out the salt and instead used 4 fillets of anchovy. It was probably the most savory BBQ sauce I’ve ever had – a real winner if you’re looking for a sweet and tangy variety. It could be a lot spicier, though – i used about a whole teaspoon of cayenne and it still came out mild on account of all the sweetness and tartness which counteract the heat. Great recipe!” – Roy
