Grillin’ Goodness Bar-B-Que Sauce Recipe (and a July 4th Party Printable)

I love myself some good Bar-B-Que and some good Bar-B-Que Sauce. I’m super picky about my Bar-B-Que sauce. However, if the sauce is good, I can drizzle it on ANYTHING. I have tried several store bought Bar-B-Que sauces and I’m not a fan of any. So, the other day I decided to make my own sauce and it was a huge hit! The hubs even said it tasted professional (or store bought). Thanks honey!

I took chicken breasts and cut them into strips. Put them in a ziploc bag, poured Bar-B-Que sauce over them, and placed the chicken in the fridge for a few hours. Then, I put them on the grill. Poured remaining sauce over, and got my grill on. Ladies, I promise, you can do this too!

Here is the recipe. Hope you enjoy.

Homemade Bar-B-Que Sauce Recipe


6 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 cup ketchup
1/2 teaspoon mustard powder (I didn’t have powder so I just used a Spicy Mustard and it was great)



In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the lemon juice, vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup and mustard powder and stir well. Simmer for 10 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool.
