Dallas BBQ Sauce

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

Your Memorial Day sounds absolutely divine! And this bbq sauce – yum! I’ve actually never made homemade bbq sauce!! I really need to try it this summer, yours looks amazing!

YUM! This sauce looks G-double o-D! Does is keep long in a refrigerated container? Not that I would expect to not eat it up, but maybe to make a larger sized batch?
Thanks!

    Hi Lindsey! I made this for a family BBQ and I stored the leftovers in the fridge up to a week and it was still good – hope that helps! 🙂

      Yes, that answers my question! Thank you so much!

This looks interesting. What kind of mustard has been used in it?

    Yellow mustard

      Is it prepared mustard or mustard powder?

        Prepared mustard.

What brand of seasoning salt do you use and would it be okay to use Bragg organic unfiltered apple cider vinegar?
Thanks!

    I think that organic apple cider vinegar would be fine! Also, i’ve used several brands of seasoning salt so probably anything you have on hand would work great!


Making this right now!


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. One tip that I learned by making this recipe, a bottle of Ketchup that says it is 64 ounces, is measured by weight, not liquid ounces.

Made it without the spicy. I’m keeping this made up all the time. I also put in horseradish Dijon. Thank you. Love it


Good recipie. 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!

I’ve been looking for a good bbq sauce i will give this a try and let you know

    For sure! Can’t wait to hear. I hope that you LOVE it!

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!

    Thanks for your awesome feedback, Roy!

Forgot the apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, honey, 3 anchovies in place of salt, tamarind paste, lemon juice,coarse black pepper, & Chipotle chili pepper w/o seeds, (Smoked paprika),


This is a great sauce. The flaVors worked great on my brisket and pOrk chops. The base sauce wAs goBbled up by my kiddos (not too spicy for a 4-year-old) and an extra pinch or two of cayenne spiced it up for the adults.

    Way to please the whole crew, Scott! Thanks for sharing your input!!

Hello Tiffany, I just want to let you know that this is the tastiest Barbeque Sauce I’ve ever made! (I did not Have any molasses on hand, so i tripled the brown sugar.) My family enjoyed it immensely!! It has just the right balance of everything you want in a barbeque sauce. My compliments to you! Thank you so much foR sharing your recipe.

    Emily- you are so kind! Thank you 🙂 I am so excited to hear that you and your family had such a great experience with this recipe!

I made THIS recipe and skipped the boiling stage went right to the bbq and it was a hit

    Awesome- thanks for your feedback!


Didnt have mollasses and went easy on THE apple cider vinegar. Added a half more measuring of cayenne. This recipe is delicious, tangy and sweet. Thank you!!

    Awesome job!! Thanks for your input 🙂


Soild recipe as is. I always do that before i adjust any. I Used smoked paprika instead of sweet. Used Ancho Chili powder to the same amount of paPrika and cut the cAyenne iN half.it rounded everything nicely.

    Awesome job, Joseph! Thanks for sharing your ideas!


Thank You, a very delicious Recipe. I’ve change some ingedients. So I used fresh garlic and also fresh Onion. For molasses I used maple syrup.

    Nice job, Marcel! Thanks for sharing 🙂

Delightful


Just tried it today! Great sTuff. I used honey instead of molasses and sauted onions and garlic.

    Yum!! That sounds delicious!
