Bear Sauce

This is a BBQ sauce my Dad passed down to me with just a couple modifications. Although it is not my signature sauce … it is a very good basic sauce with readily available ingredients. You can build your own signature sauce from this one. 



What You’ll Need

  • 1/2 Cup Butter - melted
  • 1 small Onion
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 1/2 tsp Dry Mustard
  • 1 tsp Horseradish
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 Bottle (24oz) Ketchup
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Cider Vinegar
  • 3 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke   
  • 1 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper

How it’s Done

  • Take the first 7 ingredients and puree them well in a food processor or blender.
  • Combine the puree mixture with all remaining ingredients into a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer for at least 30 min. The longer it simmers the thicker the sauce will be.
