Mustard based BBQ sauce recipe?

I Googled and found a ton, but I'm interested in what recipes y'all have used.  I enjoyed the mustard sauce at Salt Lick and I use Tobago Keys Peruvian Gold Grilling Sauce a lot, but I'd like to make my own. 

Thanks!

    • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 teaspoon hot sauce

     

     

     

    Directions

    In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well. Make at least 24 hours prior to usage for best flavor. Store refrigerated in a tightly covered jar for up to 2 weeks.

    I don't think the Salt Lick's BBQ sauce is a "true" mustard based bbq sauce. It has mustard in it, but its not like the ones from the Carolinas and definitely not like the one @Dyal_SC send me awhile back. Its supposed to have some influence from somebody's Hawaiian background and I believe has habanero in it.

    Kristi, being from SC, I have had plenty of mustard based sauce. I make my own, but it is basically like Billy Rays above. Basically a pepper/vinegar based style with mustard added.

    Nice little hybrid approach. If I go to a BBQ place, I usually get mustard based and mix with vinegar so my sauce is my on take on that. Would give you the exact recipe, but I dont measure anything... ever.

  • Thanks, @Chubbs!  ; I don't measure either and I'm really bad at following directions.  That's why I don't bake and why I don't have conventional recipes on my blog.  Nothing is ever the same way twice.  :D I like the taste & add method!

    This is a link for the mustard sauce @Dyal_SC sent to @Griffin and myself: Shealy's BBQ Sauce (http://www.shealysbbq.com/page.php?pageid=4)

    I am a mustard-based life-form and I made some SC style ribs with mustard sauce that were truly excellent.

    I feel your pain. I end up with it tasting good 90% of the time. I made one last week with sweet with heat mustard, whole seed dijon, honey, sage, thyme, rosemary and some wine vinegar last week and it was very good.

    This is my favorite mustard recipe adapted from my favorite BBQ place in SC. I haven't ever tried omitting the liquid smoke and just doing it on the egg, but I should next time. You may want to try half the vinegar and add it at the end if you want more, but I like it tangy.

    Ingredients
    1 cup yellow mustard
    ½ cup sugar
    ¼ cup light brown sugar
    ½ cup cider vinegar
    ¼ cup water
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    1 teaspoon white pepper
    ¼ teaspoon cayenne
    ½ teaspoon soy sauce
    2 tablespoons butter
    1 tablespoon liquid smoke

    Directions
    Mix all ingredients except soy, butter and smoke. 
    Simmer on low for 30 minutes.
    Stir in remaining ingredients and simmer for 10 more minutes, adding more vinegar if necessary

    1/2 c horseradish mustard
    1/2 c Abita DoubleDog (vanilla flavored)
    1/4 c apple cider vinegar
    1/4 c honey
    2 Tblsp brown sugar
    1 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp garlic powder

    Wish I would have seen this post sooner!  I grew up on Mustard-Based Sauce....didn't know it wasn't a national thing until later in life.  Shealy's is my favorite mustard-based sauce.  We have a stockpile of it in our cabinet.  ;)   My wife works next door to the restaurant, plus they sell it in all the grocery stores around me.  Kristi, if you want a bottle of it, lemme know and I'll be more than happy to send some to you!  :)  I also make it from scratch every now and then.  This should get you started, and you can always ad lib as you go.

     

    1 cup Yellow Mustard

    1/2 cup Brown Sugar

    1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

    S&P to taste

    About 1 or 2 tablespoons Molasses

    About 3 or 4 tablespoons Honey

  • I made both Dyal's and yzzi's (which i also found online called Big Daddy's carolina style on about.com).  Greatly preferred the latter although both were good.  The first one was a bit more mustardy

    Yeah I couldn't remember where I found that. I've modified it a bit. Been skipping white sugar and doing 3/4 cups of brown. 1/4 cup vinegar and 1/2 cup water. Found that to be close to what I am used to from my time in SC.

    @BuckeyeBob thanks for this suggestion. Made it yesterday for my nephews bday to serve with some pulled pork and it was a big hit. I will definitely be making this again.

  • Key to any mustard based is equal parts ketchup and yellow mustard...go from there.  A little maple syrup or honey is a good addition

  • I use Roxy's Mustard Sauce recipe from the Smoke Ring combined with some of the components of Chris Lilly's Big Bob Gibson Carolina Mustard Sauce. Mainly it is Roxy's minus the onion and garlic (I use onion and garlic powder) with more mustard and the addition of honey. Rave reviews everywhere I take it.

  • A few years ago we made several versions side by side and taste tested them all against each other.  This is the one we ended up liking the best.  It has apple pie moonshine in it for a smooth kick.  If you can't find the chipotle mustard, use a coarse grain mustard and add a little ground chipotle.

    South Carolina Style Mustard BBQ Sauce

    1/2 cup yellow mustard (you want a plain yellow mustard like French's)
    1/4 cup chipotle mustard (I used World Classics brand)
    1/4 cup light brown sugar
    1 cup cider vinegar
    1/4 cup apple/cinnamon flavored moonshine
    2 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp black pepper
    1 tsp white pepper
    1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp soy sauce
    1 Tbsp butter

    Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to a simmer for 10 minutes.
