Honey Habanero BBQ Sauce

Habanero Peppers

Habanero Peppers

Like a few of the other recipes, I also have this recipe for Honey Habanero BBQ Sauce listed in the Hot & Spicy section of this website.  I include it here as well since it has honey in the recipe and I wanted to make sure all of the “honey” BBQ Sauces Recipes were listed together for easy browsing.


As usual, I like sweet BBQ sauces and with the honey, this Honey Habanero BBQ Sauce is a winner!  If Habaneros are a bit too hot for you, you can always cut back on the amount or even substitute a Jalapeno or something less hot.  However, habanero like any hot pepper has it’s own unique type of hot flavor so give it a try before you think habaneros are too hot for you.


Honey Habanero BBQ Sauce
Recipe type: BBQ Sauce Recipe
Cuisine: BBQ

  • 6 fresh habanero peppers
  • 5 cloves fresh garlic
  • 7 shallots
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup honey (I use a local farmer – fresh unrefined honey is the way to go)
  • ½ cup teriyaki sauce
  • ½ cup any brand regular bbq sauce
  • 4 tablespoons horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons worchestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke

  1. Remove all seeds, stems, and ribs from habanero (scotch bonnet) peppers. Finely dice cleaned peppers, garlic, and shallots, and sauté in olive oil until garlic and onions begin to carmelize.
  2. Once the garlic and onions begin to turn golden brown, add honey, teriyaki, bbq sauce, horseradish, mustard, and liquid smoke.
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Use as you would any bbq sauce, and know that even without the ribs and seeds, this is a VERY spicy bbq sauce.

  • awesome job with this recipe – i agree with you on the inclusion honey. only recommendation is to use true pure honey instead of the garbage processed stuff in the store (if you can get it). there’s a world of difference in the taste. The last 4 ingredients on your list are a must for any BBQ sauce i like to make. Can also substitute in a few dashes of an nice organic bottled hot sauce to bump up the heat a notch if desired.
