The ingredients used to make homemade honey bbq sauce.

Make The Homemade Honey BBQ Sauce

Measure all the ingredients for the BBQ sauce into a medium-sized saucepan. Stir the ingredients well, until they’re fully combined. Bring the homemade honey BBQ sauce to a full boil on medium heat. Once it has boiled for a minute, remove the pan from the heat.

That’s it! You’ve just made a batch of homemade honey BBQ sauce, and it’s ready to be used to enhance the flavor of chicken, pork or beef! You can use it right away, or if using later, store it covered in the refrigerator up to 3-4 days. When ready to use the sauce, simply bring it back to room temperature. See how EASY that was?

Time To Grill (Or Bake!)

When ready to grill (or bake) a favorite meat dish, liberally brush the homemade honey BBQ sauce on your favorite meats. We love this BBQ sauce on grilled pork chops and grilled or baked chicken. The sauce can also be enjoyed on ribs, and pulled pork, chicken or BBQ beef sandwiches, too. 

This sauce has a fantastic taste, and the flavors really shine. I truly think you will love this sauce as much as we do! The recipe as written, will make about 1⅓ cups of sauce, so you may or may not have some sauce left over, depending on the amount of meat you are cooking. You can store it covered in the fridge for a few days, OR you can freeze it in an airtight container for use at a later date. Simply thaw, and reheat the BBQ sauce in a small sauce pan before using.
