Honey Jalapeno BBQ Sauce Recipe



Okay, I have this recipe for Honey Jalapeno BBQ Sauce also listed in the Hot & Spicy section of the website.  But since it included honey, I wanted to make sure all of the “honey” BBQ Sauces were listed together in one place since Honey BBQ Sauces are probably the most desired type of BBQ Sauce Recipes around.


This recipe, however, is truly a cheat if you are in a hurry for a quick Honey Jalapeno BBQ Sauce.  Why?  Well, it’s not a “from scratch” recipe.  Simply take your favorite store bought barbecue sauce and add the honey and jalapenos to sweeten and spice it up.  You could always choose an existing honey bbq sauce and skip adding the honey, but adding honey really sweetens it up which I like.  The whiskey adds a nice flavor as well which you won’t find in many store bought sauces.  If you don’t want to use a store bought sauces, you can take a basic tomato based BBQ sauce recipe from our “The Basics” section and have a completely homemade honey barbecue sauce which I would recommend.
