A classic red bbq sauce that is ketchup based. Nothing fancy and a good intro to bbq sauces.


1 cup ketchup
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup white wine vinegar
2 teaspoons mild chili powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Add ingredients to a medium pot over low heat. Stir until flavors are combined and it’s steaming. No need to simmer it even.
  2. Remove and allow sauce to cool. Use immediately or store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
