Homemade Old Bay BBQ Sauce

My hubby is a HUGE fan of Old Bay seasoning.  He puts it on everything and when I say everything I mean everything!  He puts it on his eggs, sandwiches, pizza;  – he even puts it on his Chinese food – which kind of sounds disgusting but he loves it.

A new pizza place recently opened by us and they have the best Old Bay BBQ Wings so I knew I had to recreate the recipe and I new it would be the perfect Father’s Day gift. I whip up a batch of Homemade Old Bay BBQ Sauce in no time yesterday and just kept adding Old Bay until I had just the right amount.  This was my first time making homemade BBQ sauce and I can’t believe I haven’t done it sooner.  It was so easy and tastes delicious!

How to make Homemade BBQ Sauce

Have you made homemade BBQ sauce before?  This was first time and I can’t believe how easy it is.  Plus, we already had all the ingredients so that made it even better.  No need to take a trip to the grocery store:)

First gather your ingredients.  You’ll need ketchup, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, Old Bay Seasoning, paprika, garlic powder, black pepper, onion powder and salt.

Just whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl and your BBQ sauce is ready.  If you aren’t a fan of Old Bay just leave it out. Your BBQ sauce will still taste great.

Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for when you’re ready to use it.
