When Jerry and I got married, I worked with a friend to choose food that our farmer friends with big appetites would like. The highlight was a pig roast topped with this tangy barbecue sauce.


  • 4 cups ketchup
  • 1 cup prepared mustard
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons liquid smoke, optional
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons pepper


  1. In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. May be refrigerated for up to 1 week. Use as a basting or dipping sauce for pork, poultry or beef.
