Sometimes we worry about what exactly is in the bottled Old Hickory Barbecue Sauce – in those instances we could make our own!  Barbeque sauce is a staple in our house, we eat it on pork ribs, chicken, meatballs, and even nachos!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

This sweet and tangy old hickory barbeque sauce tastes better than any of the bottled!


  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 cup sweet onions chopped fine
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • ¼ cup cocktail sauce
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • ¼ cup white corn syrup
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons liquid hickory smoke seasoning


    Begin by heating the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic; sauté them until they are soft. Remove them pan from the heat and allow them to cool.
    Once the onions and garlic have cooled for a little while, stir in the remaining ingredients.
    If using over food, add during the last minute of cooking! Be sure to reserve about 1/2 cup for serving.
