Semi Homemade Cola Barbecue Sauce | Make your burger stand out with homemade barbecue sauce! This sauce has a touch of sweetness from the cola with a hint of spice from the crushed red pepper flakes. It all starts with your favorite barbecue sauce as the base.
The flavor is up to you! I chose a savory sauce base. If sweet sauces are your thing then you can choose a sweet sauce base. It kind of depends on what the sauce is going to be put on. For a burger and pulled pork I like more of a spicy sauce but for barbecue beef I prefer a sweet sauce.
This sauce is great on any burger especially a WESTERN BACON CHEESEBURGER, RANCH BURGER or a STEAKHOUSE BURGER. If the perfect burger is what you’re looking for, visit my burger category.
