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

I have made this multiple times. I can’t even remember how many times. I add liquid smoke at the very end. We gave bottles away for Christmas. Now everyone is asking for more or asking for the recipe. My housemate uses it on her chicken salad.

    Ohhhh what a fabulous idea! I bet the added liquid smoke is fantastic. I think I’m going to have to try that!

I’ve made this a few times, once for a work BBQ and everyone loved this! Thank you for this recipe! It is my favorite!

    You are so welcome!! Happy to hear that you enjoy this recipe so much!
