Invite everyone you know for a lip smack’n barbecue! This Sweet Hot Barbecue Sauce has quite a kick! Made with rich sweet molasses and dark corn syrup and then a kick of heat from the hot pepper sauce, chili powder and cayenne. At first all you taste is the sweet sauce and then BAM! There’s the heat. I love it when that happens.
Brush this rich thick Sweet Hot Barbecue Sauce on beef, pork or poultry during the last 10 minutes of grilling.
This recipe uses liquid smoke (pictured below). If you have never bought liquid smoke you can usually find with with the barbecue sauces at your grocery store.
In a medium sauce, combine the water tomato paste, molasses, corn syrup, vinegar, honey, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, garlic salt, liquid smoke, hot pepper sauce, chili powder, cayenne pepper, onion powder and salt.
Bring just to boiling; reduce heat to medium-low.
Cook, uncovered, about 45 minutes or until mixture reaches desired consistency, stirring frequently.
