Hey guys, summer time in my area means I'm on the grill all the time. Here's the deal though, I love all things BBQ however I'm getting a little tired of my grocery store sauces and possibly thinking of attempting to make my own. If you make your own please share or share what you use!

I've been using kraft original for awhile and I really enjoy it, I'm not a fan of the sweeter sauces,like kc masterpiece. Another good one for me is Bullseye. Come on chefs hook me up with a BBQ sauce !lol

Stubbs is good stuff.

My go-to for pork is Sweet Baby Ray's original with a little doctoring up for my taste (a little cider vinegar, black pepper and some pineapple habanero jelly).

+1 on the Baby Rays!!  Can't go wrong. On occasion we will add a little brown sugar,  some grape jelly, and maybe a dab of mustard to a store bought to really bring out the flavor.

I regularly add Honey and brown sugar to SBR sauces, even a bit of water if I want it a bit thinner.

It's about the only sauces we seem to use the last few years. I stock up when I'm in the USA as there is a much larger selection.

This one is different but tasty.

This old lady up the street runs a BBQ place. I've been trying for years to get her recipe and she said when she retires I can have it but my goodness its great. I told her I was going to send it to a chemist and get the ingredients myself...

Gotta say I agree with Otis375 -- most store-bought sauces are too sweet for me. I like Woody's Cookin' sauce because it has almost no sweetness at all -- just that smokey, tangy goodness.

If I do want a hint of sweetness I'll add honey, but I love the suggestions about using jelly -- sounds like a winner!

Sweet Baby Rays in my house. Sometimes spruce it up with habanero or chipotle

For pulled pork and other things I pull off the smoker, I usually make a thin, vinegar based sauce if I am going to add anything.

For burgers, Smokey's, sausage etc, I reach for store bought.

I'll start making my own BBQ sauce oon as it is quite easy from what I hear. Once the tomatoes start spouting, I plan on doing it from scratch or as much of it as I can.

I also dislike a sweet BBQ sauce; so many years ago I decided to make my own. It's a very balanced BBQ sauce and extremely concentrated. Taken straight it will take your breath away. For awhile I sold it but it's too time consuming to make so I just make it for family today, and of course, us. There for awhile it had a local following but I had to stop making it commercially. Today I make a batch every ten years or so and load the shelf. Yes, it lasts that long in glass storage, nothing could possibly grow in it. IMO it's awesome! In other folks opinions too.

No I won't sell the recipe to a company that will cheapen it and turn it into junk. Anyway, their lawyers would just try to steal it "legally" and tie me up in court until I croak. No thanks. I don't need the aggravation. I'm supposed to be pleasantly retired.

My favorite mustard based sauce that disappeared for some reason was Maurice's Carolina Gold. It came in a glass torpedo shaped bottle with a blackcap. It rocked.

Another like, what's this the 7th like? for Sweet Baby Ray's. The only BBQ I buy, even though I am usually a cheapskate who gets the off-brand...
