Smokey’s Finest BBQ sauce

For all you lazy asses: we sell them as well

Many purists (mostly from Texas) say that putting BBQ sauce on meat is a sin. Well, if using sauce is wrong, I don’t want to be right, because boy are these sauces a good match with many BBQ dishes.


You can buy store-bought BBQ sauce at specialty stores (here at Smokey Goodness we recommend the BBQ sauces by Smokey Goodness, obviously), but making your own is much more fun.


This is the recipe for Smokey’s original BBQ sauce.

The ingredients:

(about 4 cups worth) 

Smokey’s original BBQ sauce 
  • 3⅓ fl oz (100 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 2½ fl oz (75 ml) cola
  • 2½ fl oz (75 ml) apple juice
  • 2 tbsp gluten free soy sauce
  • 1⅔ fl oz (50 ml) worcester sauce
  • 4 tbsp brown caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp molasses (apple syrup as alternative)
  • 1 tbsp tabasco
  • 3 tbsp Pig Powder BBQ rub (see recipe)
  • 17 fl oz (around 2 cups/500 ml) ketchup
  • 3⅓ fl oz (100 ml) honey
  • 3 tbsp balsamic syrup


  • Cooking pot
  • Jar or bottle that holds at least 1 L

How to make:

In a pan, mix the apple cider vinegar, cola, apple juice, soy sauce, and worcester sauce and bring to a near boil. Add the sugar, tabasco, and Pig Powder BBQ rub. Stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Add the ketchup, honey, and balsamic syrup and give the mixture a good stir. Turn the heat to low and leave to simmer for 15 minutes. Take off the heat and allow the sauce to cool completely.


Pour your Smokey’s original BBQ sauce into a clean jar or bottle. Seal and keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
