Ryan's Homemade BBQ Sauce

Don't be so surprised- just because I don't eat meat, doesn't mean I can't enjoy some awesome BBQ sauce! Ryan has gotten into smoking meats with his cousin Brendan  (So far they've smoked a Thanksgiving Turkey, a rack of ribs, and two whole chickens)- and it was only natural Ryan tried to make his own sauce, too. I get to benefit of course by putting it on tofu (I LOVE it in the TLT recipe!!) and on fake chicken fingers. It's also pretty fun to hang out in a backyard for 8 hours, smelling the apple and cherry wood chips and enjoying the 90 degree heat... with a side of... heat.


4 tbsp Molasses
4 tbsp worcester sauce
2-3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 cup Ketchup
2-3 tbsp dijon mustard
1 cup water
1/4 tsp hot sauce (we use Franks)- to taste
1 tsp kosher salt
2 tbsp extra dark brown sugar
1/2 tsp pepper

1-2 tsp cayenne
dash of paprika

dash of cumin


Combine all wet and dry ingredients together in a small sauce pan.
Bring to boil over medium heat
Turn to low, stirring frequently and allowing to simmer for about 20 min.
Remove from heat and allow to rest until cool. Refrigerate overnight.

Serve over your favorite grilled or smoked meats, or tofu, if that's your thing :)
