Homemade Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce

It’s Memorial Day Weekend!  Who’s ready for some fun in the sun?!  I am!

It’s a shame the weather forecast for the weekend is cold and rainy in Philly and at the shore. 😦

Regardless, I’m sure we’ll be gettin’ the grill going sometime this weekend.  Are ya with me?

This week, Dave and I tried out our very first homemade BBQ sauce.  I feel fancy but I should really know better.  It was super easy.  I promise.  I got the recipe from a really great blog called The Black Peppercorn.  He used the sauce for pulled pork which sounds so delish, but we just decided to use it as a dipping sauce and topping for some grilled chicken and veggies.  Here you go!

Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce

Makes 1.5 Cups (approx)


1 cup yellow mustard
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup water
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tsp black pepper
½ teaspoon cayenne
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
1 tsp sea salt
3 tablespoons butter

  1. Whisk all the ingredients together in a saucepan until smooth. Cook on medium low heat for about 20 minutes while stirring occasionally.  
  2. Store in a jar or squeeze bottle in the fridge.

Recipe from:  The Black Peppercorn

Try it out this weekend… yummy!

  2. Unfortunately we are having the same rainy cold weather…the high today was 48. 😦 Sooner or later the sun will come out and it will warm up. I’ll be looking forward to trying the mustard BBQ sauce.
