  • 3 TBSP Worcestershire sauce

  • 3 TBSP mustard, yellow

  • 1/2 cup white vinegar

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

  • Onion powder to taste

  • 1 TSP Paprika

  • 1 TSP Cayenne pepper

  • ½ crushed salt and pepper mix


  • After combining all ingredients, and whisking enough to mix them well, add them to a saucepan.

  • This sauce is best eaten warm.

  • All ingredients will have a different consistency and water content that gets released upon cooking.

  • All of this becomes balanced after you heat up all the ingredients over medium-low heat.

  • Keep stirring for 10 minutes on low heat.

  • Immediately remove the sauce from the heat and let it cool in a separate container.

  • Refrigerate the sauce if not using right away.

  • Reheat upon using.

  • Memphis BBQ Sauce is sweet, sticky, and smokey.

  • Pair your Memphis BBQ plate with a side dish of a mild flavor that does not distract from the key ingredient.
