Barkman Honey

Sweet and Spicy Agave Barbecue Sauce

  • Yield

    4 cups



  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup prepared mustard
  • 1 tbsp. hot sauce
  • 2 tsp. liquid smoke seasoning
  • 3 tbsp. granulated onion
  • 2 tbsp. granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt



Place all ingredients in a non-corrosive pot.

Bring mixture to a boil and reduce to a low simmer until sauce thickens, approximately 10 minutes.

Adjust seasoning to flavor desired (a little sweeter—add more agave; a little hotter—add more hot sauce; a little smokier—add more liquid smoke).

Sauce can be used to baste everything from chicken and ribs to flank steak. Or pour over pork butt and slow-cook for pulled pork.
