The perfect homemade BBQ sauce for every dish. Plus, now you have something cool to make with leftover pickle juice!
The secret trick to this amazing BBQ sauce is in the recycled pickle juice brine that you can use from an empty jar of pickles. We’ve found the best kind to be the Vlassic Zesty, for that special kind of kick. You can also add some heat with the red pepper flakes, but that is completely optional.
This BBQ sauce is not heavy, rich, or sweet. It’s zesty. This is a light one that is almost like a syrup. It’s our absolute favorite and I created this in the kitchen from scratch when so many of the other BBQ sauces we tried from the store had so much of a hickory tannin taste to them, were too heavy or thick.
Just mix all the ingredients together, and put it in a recycled pickle jar for safekeeping. Our family, the Legends, love it, and we hope you will, too.
Be sure to follow me on Pinterest to get more recipes from my kitchen. I have other sauces, too, that you might be interested in.
Granted, finished jars of this delicious BBQ sauce are not available in my shop. Not that I haven’t thought about it. But making sauce in the kitchen is not my ideal way to spend my days, and I love designing and writing too much to give that up. So, instead, I’m sharing it with you so you can make it in YOUR home.
