You’re Going To Want To Take This With You Everywhere This Summer!

I make up a batch of the BBQ sauce at least once a week. Sometimes I will have different flavors chilling in the fridge, just because I’m never quite sure which one I am going to want to use for what dish. It’s nice that it can be stored in there and brought out for later. I will have a bologna sandwich throughout the week sometimes and squirt a little bit of this on it. It takes a sandwich from something I used to have to choke down to something that I truly look forward to eating.

Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at All Recipes:

“Made this over the weekend to go over some Hawaiian burgers. Everyone loved the sauce. I made mine using Dr Pepper. Next time I am going to try some cream soda.”

Go crazy! Use whatever kind of soda you want… you won’t know if it’s good until you try it.



2 cups A & W root beer

2 cups Heinz ketchup

1/2 cup Florida’s no-pulp orange juice

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup molasses

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon hot paprika

1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder

2 teaspoons garlic powder

2 teaspoons onion powder

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes




Stir together the root beer, ketchup, orange juice, Worcestershire sauce, and molasses in a saucepan. Season with ginger, paprika, chipotle powder, garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes.


Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Use immediately or store in the refrigerator up to a week.






Quick Tip: Try it on your potatoes.
