What better place to find a fantastic barbecue sauce than Texas, and that’s where this one is from—it’s my father-in-law’s own recipe. We’ve served it at many family reunions and think it’s the best! —Bobbie Morgan, Woodstock, Georgia

Ingredients

  • 2 broiler/fryer chickens (3 to 4 pounds each), cut into 8 pieces each
  • Salt and pepper
  • BARBECUE SAUCE:
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 small onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Directions

Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Grill skin side down, uncovered, on a greased grill rack over medium heat for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, make barbecue sauce by heating oil over medium heat. Add onion; saute until tender. Stir in remaining sauce ingredients, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
Turn chicken; brush with barbecue sauce. Grill 15-25 minutes longer, brushing frequently with sauce, until a thermometer reads 165° when inserted in the breast and 170°-175° in the thigh. Yield: 12 servings.

"What a great sauce. Love all of the extra ingredients in this recipe. It is a little bit of everything. Perfect for ribs, chicken, pork or as a sauce for Meatloaf.

My weekend winner.

"I baked the chicken as I don't have a grill. I also used 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs as I didn't have whole chickens and used 1/2 medium onion. I also just used 1 cup ketchup. The rest of the sauce was kept the same!"

"This was very good and easy to make! My favorite part about this recipe is that it is made with ingredients that I have on hand. The sauce is a little on the sweet side but has a good tang to it. For my taste, I would add a little more salt. The only change I made was using less onion because my husband doesn't like a ton of onion flavor."

"Very good! Made this for supper on our charcoal grill! My sauce got a little to thick, but that was an easy fix by adding a tiny bit of water to loosen it up, and it was very tasty!"

"I used sesame seed oil and it added just a little extra taste to this already delicious bbq sauce."
