Honey BBQ Sauce Recipe (with Molasses & Brown Sugar)



Here’s what I call one of the more complicated (plenty of ingredients) Honey Barbeque Sauce Recipes.  Not ONLY does it contain honey to make it sweet, it also has Molasses and brown sugar so this sauce has a great sweet flavor.  This recipe also has a lot more ingredients compared to some of the other Honey Barbeque sauce recipes I have listed so far so I classify this one as more complex even though there’s nothing special or hard about it.  It’s just a larger list of ingredients.


As a note about Molasses.  If you have your favorite brand of molasses that you like to use great.  For this BBQ Recipe, and for anything with molasses, I’m a fan of “Grandma’s Molasses”.  My grandmother (yes for real!) never used any other brand and she hooked me on this molasses when I was a kid.
