Honey Barbecue Sauce

Honey barbecue sauce is a delightfully sweet condiment that pairs perfectly with chicken, burgers, and many other dishes. It’s not spicy or sour, making it an ideal sauce for even the pickiest eaters. This sauce is a favorite among every member of the family, and it’s easy to prepare in advance, simplifying dinner prep.

I particularly enjoy having this sauce as a dip when I’m entertaining guests who have specific eating preferences. With a little dip from this barbecue sauce, both meat and veggies are devoured in no time.

How to Make Honey BBQ Sauce

Making BBQ sauce at home is a relatively simple and straightforward process. The crucial step is allowing the sauce to simmer. Simmering the sauce combines the flavors and thickens it to create a wonderfully sticky texture.

Follow these three easy steps, and you’ll realize just how effortless it is to make your own homemade BBQ sauce in your kitchen.

  1. Combine the ingredients: In a medium saucepan, mix all the ingredients thoroughly.
  2. Boil and simmer: Bring the sauce to a boil over medium heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Cool and serve: Once the sauce has thickened, remove it from the heat and let it cool.

This sauce is ready to be served immediately. If you’re preparing it ahead of time, store it in the refrigerator in an airtight glass jar (a Mason Jar works perfectly, but hinged glass jars are also a great option) for up to two weeks.

Ingredients for Honey BBQ Sauce

This sauce uses a ketchup base, which is perfect for pleasing all palates. The remaining eight ingredients are likely pantry staples, making this recipe quick and easy. One thing to note: most of my sauce and rub recipes call for smoked paprika instead of regular paprika. I recommend stocking up on a large bottle next time you’re at the store. The smoked seasoning truly makes a difference!

Here’s what you’ll need to make this honey BBQ sauce:

  • ketchup
  • brown sugar
  • apple cider vinegar
  • honey
  • salt
  • smoked paprika
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder
  • black pepper

Honey BBQ Wing Sauce Recipe

This honey BBQ sauce is an excellent choice for wing sauce. It’s sweet with a mild tanginess, making it a delicious complement to chicken wings. I believe this sauce would go incredibly well with my Smoked then Fried Chicken Wings. When I serve wings, I always like to have a variety of sauce options available for my friends, and this honey BBQ sauce is perfect for those who prefer a sweeter flavor on their smoked or fried wings.

You can also use this honey BBQ wing sauce as a cooling agent for my Honey Heat Smoked Chicken Wings, or generously coat my Extra Crispy Smoked Chicken Wings. The possibilities with this sauce are endless! Whether you prefer your wings crispy, fried, or smoked, this sauce adds a delightful sweet touch to complete your wings.
