Spicy Barbecue Sauce

bbq sauce recipe, barbecue sauce recipe, canada recipe, canadian foodMy recipes often have stories and this one sure does. I flew across from Prince Rupert on a huge Sikorski helicopter and landed at Langara Lightstation where, at that time, the Brunn family were the lighthouse keepers.  Ken loved to grill things, especially salmon. 

This is a modified version of his favourite grilling sauce.  It’s really easy and not in the least fancy….all the ingredients had to be storable in a lighthouse larder.  For a large batch, just double the recipe.

  • 3/4 (175 mL) cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 (125 mL) cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ginger powder
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chili powder 
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) hot sauce (your fave)
  • 1 – 2 garlic cloves, grated

Measure the ingredients into a glass jar and shake them really well.  Refrigerate about an hour before you slather it into your burgers or ribs.

Makes about 1 1/4 cups (310 mL)
