Basic Pantry BBQ Sauce
This great-tasting, no-cook barbecue sauce can baste barbecued chicken, dress up grilled hamburgers, or finish a dish like our Smoked Pork Loin.
Why This Recipe Works
When it came to the liquid smoke in our no-cook Basic Pantry BBQ Sauce recipe, we found it best to avoid brands with additives such as salt, vinegar, and molasses. The test kitchen’s top-rated brand contains nothing but smoke and water. A teaspoon of hot sauce balanced the sweetness with a bit of heat.
