We love thick and sweet barbecue sauce like the Sweet Baby Ray's brand. When I found myself out of BBQ sauce recently, because of the Corona Virus grocery shortage, I dug out this old recipe....it is DELICIOUS and very MUCH like Sweet Baby Ray's regular barbeque sauce.

Bacon wrapped Shrimp coated with
BBQ Sauce and Baked

1  1/4 cups regular ketchup
1  cup dark brown sugar (deeper flavor than light brown)
1/4  cup molasses
1/4  cup pineapple juice
2  teaspoons hickory liquid smoke
2  1/2 teaspoons ground dry mustard
2 teaspoons paprika
1/2  teaspoon garlic powder (not salt)
pinch of cayenne pepper
1  1/2 teaspoons kosher salt (not fine table salt)
1 teaspoon black pepper

Put everything into a saucepan and whisk it together. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to slow simmer and simmer 5 to 15 minutes, depending on how thick you want it to be.

You can use this immediately or store in fridge for a week or so or portion it out and freeze it for future use. 

NOTE: If you don't have kosher salt, you can use regular table salt, just use LESS, since kosher salt and table salt measure very differently.

 Happy Grilling!!
