BBQ Rum Sauce


BBQ Rum Sauce

BBQ Rum Sauce

Regarding BBQ Inc.

This sauce is based on a basic tomato style barbecue sauce and then gets a kick from a little rum. You won't taste the rum (much) but it works excellently to combine the other flavors and enhance what you put it on. This BBQ sauce is great on BBQ Ribs.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Makes about 3 cups


  • 2 8-ounce cans tomato sauce
  • 1 8-ounce can green chilies (medium heat)
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon paprika


Pour olive oil in a medium saucepan over a medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute until opaque. Add other ingredients except the rum. Mix well. Bring to a light boil then remove from heat.
