Aaron Franklin's Regular BBQ Sauce

We have been meaning to try Aaron Franklin's recipe for a tomato-based BBQ sauce for some time. We wanted something for use with beef plate ribs, and this sauce really fits the bill. This is Aaron Franklin's Regular Sauce, also called his Classic Sauce. You will find this recipe in Aaron Franklin's book, Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto. You'll also find it all over the internet on food and BBQ related websites. And you'll find they all have one thing in common: a somewhat puzzling ingredients list. We have sorted out the ingredients list for you and offer it up here for your BBQ pleasure. This sauce has some tang, a little bit of sweet and a little bit of heat. Aaron Franklin calls it a good all-purpose sauce.

Makes about 3 cups.



Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan and warm over medium heat, stirring occasionally. There is no need to bring the mixture to a boil, just warm it enough to melt and integrate the ingredients. Once you have done that, remove the pan from the heat and let the sauce cool. Transfer to a container and you can store the sauce in your refrigerator for up to 1 month.


We placed our finished sauce into squeeze bottles that you can buy for $1 at Dollar General stores and other places that carry kitchen wares. As you can see, this recipe yields two of those bottles.
