Jack’s Secret Barbecue Sauce

Full disclosure… we have no clue who Jack is, but man this recipe is tasty!


  • 4-8 ounces of your favorite store-bought BBQ sauce (sweet)
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar (white will work also)
  • 3 tblsp lemon juice (approx. 1 lemon)
  • 1 1/2 tblsp brown sugar
  • 1 tblsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1 tblsp hot pepper sauce (Tabasco, Frank’s, Trappy’s, Louisiana)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper (fresh ground if you have it)
  • Add more or less of your store-bought sauce, to your taste.

You don’t have to cook this one! Just combine the ingredients, put in a jar with a tight lid (for occasional shaking), place in the refrigerator for a couple of days before the feast. Give it a vigorous shake once in a while.

If you are in a hurry, you may simmer the ingredients for about 25 minutes to serve immediately.

Our Customers Love Us

Texas Custom Patios was a pleasure to work with from first call to final detail on our patio cover and flooring. Everyone we worked with — office personnel on scheduling, crews on fast and quality work, and Steven helping with design ideas and scheduling and issue resolution — were all what contracting should be. We had been looking at our odd roofline, chimney location and numerous angles for over 10 years and received numerous quotes and estimates that just didn’t work or the contractors flatly said they couldn’t do what we were looking for . . . until Steven and TCP arrived and did exactly what we wanted (and more) on time, on budget, no hassle. We love our new space and receive many compliments on the look and functionality of the space and design. We would love to have TCP and Steven do another project for us and we recommend them to anyone.
