Franklin’s Secret BBQ Sauce Recipe

Makes 3 Cups

Franklin's BBQ Espresso Sauce - Copycat Recipe

  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/4 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons brisket drippings or bacon drippings (you can substitute beef broth)
  • 3 tablespoons freshly brewed espresso

Step 1: Place the ketchup, vinegars, soy sauce, garlic and onion powders, brown sugar, and brisket drippings in a heavy saucepan. Gradually bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer the sauce, uncovered, until thick and richly flavored, 10 minutes, whisking often.

Step 2: Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the espresso. Use right away or transfer to clean jars, cover, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate. The sauce will keep for several weeks.
