The BBQ Glaze

You can make this glaze with maple syrup, cane sugar, honey, sorghum, or molasses depending on what your are cooking with.  We also like to add roasted spicy hot peppers to the mix. About a tablespoon (11 g) of minced charred peppers will give your sauce a unique – and hot – flavor. Jalapenos to habaneros, choose the spiciness you like.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 5 cups (1.3 kg)


  • 1 cup (22 g) packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup (340 g) honey or (235 ml) maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, toasted and grounded
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups (480 g) ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons (22 g) yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons (28 ml) Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fermented chili sauce


Combine the brown sugar, honey or maple syrup, vinegar, and spices in a small saucepan over medium high heat.  Bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally, and then lower the hear to medium and simmer for 3 minutes.

Add the ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and fermented chili sauce and mix well. Simmer, stirring occasional, for 5 minutes more.

Cool to room temperature and pour off into three pint-sized (475 ml) Mason jars.


Refrigerate, tightly covered, for up to 2 months
