Recipe: Sweet Heat BBQ Sauce

This sauce couldn’t be simpler to prepare or tastier on your cuts of pork or poultry, your burgers, sausages, and countless other meats. Honey and dark brown sugar bring the sweetness while Sriracha chili sauce adds a piquant bite that pairs well with the tanginess of Worcestershire and onions. Grill with it (albeit it at risk of incurring the wrath of those whose religion is built upon the differences between barbecuing and grilling). Bake with it. Use it for dipping sauce. Write it flowery sonnets.

• 1½ cups tomato ketchup
• ¼ cup light brown sugar
• 2 tbsp dark brown sugar
• 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
• 1 tsp dried minced onion
• ¾ tsp Sriracha sauce
• 4 tsp honey
• ¼ cup brown sugar
• 1 tsp red wine vinegar

1. Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over low to medium heat.
2. Heat until brown sugar dissolves, then reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 1 hour before using.
