These summer days are hot and lazy and I totally get it that it is easier to pop into the supermarket to buy BBQ sauce instead of making your own.  (I am guilty of it as well sometimes!!)

But, when I have the time I do like to make my own BBQ sauce and I usually triple this recipe ending with almost 1lt of BBQ sauce.  I store it in the fridge in an airtight container and it lasts my many months!  No more shopping for BBQ sauce and this beats any shop bought BBQ sauce hands down!

This is the exact recipe that I used during the “Foodtruck Challenge” of Mitt Kjøkken Rules (My Kitchen Rules) in Norway.  I served it with the pulled salmon on brioche buns with fennel salad which won us a second place.  Not a first but we were happy to get through to the next round.  (You can find the recipe for the pulled salmon here)

Finding molasses in Norway can be a bit of a challenge, but you can find it at this health shop or alternatively there is always iHerb.

Slather this sauce on your BBQ burgers, sausages or whatever tickles your fancy and proudly tell your friends and family you made it yourself!

Bon appetite!
