The name gives it away, but this sauce is delicious on brisket. Don’t let that stop you from serving it alongside steaks, pork roast, and burgers, too.


  • 1 cup (240 ml) BarBacon BBQ Sauce or your favorite store-bought BBQ sauce
  • ½ cup (120 ml) Bacon Stock, or ½ cup water cooked with 4 chopped slices bacon (see Note)
  • cup (75 ml) molasses
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon beef base, or 1 beef bouillon cube


In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine the BBQ sauce, stock, molasses, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and beef base and cook, whisking occasionally, until just heated through, about 5 minutes.

Remove from the heat and use immediately, or let cool to room temperature and store in a container with a tight-fitting lid. The sauce will keep, tightly covered in the refrigerator, for up to 3 days.
