If you’re looking to make a big batch of a tomato-based BBQ sauce that is out of this world good, you’ve found it. This sweet-n-spicy BBQ sauce is great to play around with depending on your tastes, too. It goes on smooth, has hints of sweetness and smoke, and a little heat. Well, it can have a lot of heat depending on how much hot sauce you decide to add.

Sweet-n-Spicy BBQ Sauce

Perfect For Those Backyard BBQs

We slathered some of this great sweet-n-spicy BBQ sauce onto some grilled chicken breasts last night for dinner. It made for some great eats, that’s for sure! I made sure to make extra, too. The leftover chicken (drenched in more sauce) will go onto pizzas and quesadillas. This sauce is also excellent as a dipping sauce for grilled smoked sausage!

This recipe makes about 2 quarts, enough for 16 bone-in chicken breasts… or thereabouts!

  1. I bet y’all could “kick this up a notch” by omitting the liquid smoke and cookin’ it on a charcoal grill with a chunk of wood of your choice instead’a on the stove. 🙂

    Overall though, this sounds like a great recipe that I’ll hafta try soon…But with a coupla thighs since I likes dark meat better’n white meat, me.
