BBQ Sauce, Burgers & Ribs

This recipe is from one of my Mom's 1000 cookbooks.  I would like to say which one but it would be impossible to find it again.  It was originally included in an award winning hamburger recipe, but we also use it on ribs and it's delicious.  Spencer is in charge of making the sauce, we just keep it in a sealed jar in the fridge.

Spencer's BBQ Sauce

1 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/3 cup White Sugar
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 cup Molasses
2 tsp. Mustard
1.4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Liquid Smoke
1/8 tsp. Pepper


In a small sauce pan combine all the ingredients and bring to a boil.  Remove from the heat to cool.  Pour into a jar and use as needed.

The Award Winning Burger Recipe: (makes 6 )

1 Egg, beaten
1/3 cup Quick Oats
1/4 tsp. Onion Salt
1/4 tsp. Garlic Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1/8 tsp. Salt
1/4 cup BBQ Sauce
1 1/2 pounds Ground Beef


In a bowl combine the egg, oats, 1/4 c of the BBQ sauce, onion salt, garlic salt, pepper and salt.

Crumble the ground beef over the mixture and mix well.  Shape into six patties.

Grill covered, over medium heat for 6 - 8 minutes on each side.  Do not mess with them as they are cooking on the first side, they are a little soft and need to get a good grill on them.

Baste with the BBQ Sauce (about 1/2 cup worth), in the last five minutes.

Here's the sauce on the ribs - so so good!

Note to self:  The ribs bake for 1 hours and 20 minutes, on 350 degrees in foil.  Mom sprinkles some of the Montreal's Chicken Seasoning from Costco on each side before she wraps them in the foil.
Cool, drain out the liquid, then they can stay in the foil in the fridge until ready to bbq.  BBQ each side but don't put the sauce on until about the last ten minutes.
