If you’re headed towards the Carolinas, you might see more of a tangy mustard base sauce, if you were headed towards the west, it might be more of a tomato base sauce, but here in Texas we make ours very simple, but extremely delicious. I come from a family where you didn’t go to the store to buy your barbecue sauce, it is made right here at home with your family from scratch.


Saturday morning, you go to H-E-B to collect all the spices and ingredients to make the perfect Texas barbecue sauce. Now everyone has their own special way of making their mob sauce or barbecue sauce, but in my opinion, this is the best way to make Texas barbecue sauce from scratch.

The meat is typically rubbed with only salt and black pepper
Then cooked over indirect heat from pecan or mesquite wood.

1 1/2 Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tablespoon of Paprika
2 tablespoons of Garlic Powder
1 Can of Tomato Sauce
2 tablespoons of local honey
1/2 can of beer1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
In a large bowl combine the ingredients and mix everything together. Place the ingredients in a saucepan and leave on low for 4 hours. Once the ingredients have thickened, let the sauce cool and serve, you will not be disappointed.
