Beasty BBQ Sauce

post banner cavemanfeast Beasty BBQ Sauce

I have been meaning to get around to making my own BBQ Sauce to use for all the different BBQ Proteins I make and finally accomplished that goal, deliciously.  Lots of props to Son of Groks Zesty BBQ Sauce I used for sometime but now I have my own Beasty BBQ Sauce.  First stop for this sauce, an amazing Crock-pot BBQ Beef recipe I got from my awesome and motivating friend Big Tim.  Feel free to get creative with this sauce, use it on fish, chicken, beef, eggs or any other Caveman creation you can come up with.  Enjoy

  1. omg.. this is making my house smell amazing!!!

  2. Great sauce, and Texan approved. :-) I’ve modified it a bit and substituted 1 cup of organic non-HFCS ketchup for the tomatoes and tomato sauce and used garlic and onion powder so I don’t have to puree anything. And no pineapple because it has just the right amount of sweetness. Not Whole30 for sure, but since a little goes a long way, I’m not too concerned about the small amount of sugar. Great flavor!

  3. I don’t have beef stock, should I try with chicken or vegetable stock instead?

  4. this sauce is great!! it doesn’t have that purely sticky, sugary texture like most bottled bbq sauces have. this is like fresh, healthy sauce, but it has so much flavor. I love the smokiness to it. I also love that I can put it on the stovetop and do some house crap for an hour and come back to it. it gets a great consistency after one hour and doesn’t burn at all.

  5. This is some great sauce. You can tell its not bottled just because it doesnt have that overly sticky texture. You can really taste all the fresh ingredients and i love the smokey flavor it has. The pineapple was a nice addition. I ate it with the pulled pork and cant wait to have it again for dinner tomorrow.

    Hi! I made this recipe along with your pulled pork recipe. So wonderful!
    Thanks for sharing. Wondering how long the BBQ sauce will keep?

  7. This recipe was great! I had a small can of chopped green chilies I threw in with it for a little more kick. I have a question though…My favorite type of BBQ sauce is that thick’n spicy Kraft kind that’s mostly HCFS…any way to make something similar and paleo? I fear the answer is NO WAY since it’s mostly sugar. :(

  8. Can I freeze this recipe?

  9. How long will this sauce keep in the fridge?

  10. Can I use chicken stock in a pinch instead of beef stock?

  11. Love this BBQ sauce!

  12. Hi! I’m making this right now. It simmered for an hour then I blended. But it’s not very thick/sticky like a bbq sauce. It’s more like a gazpacho/homemade tomato soup. I’m going to let it simmer some more because I really want it to be thick but is it supposed to be liquidy?

  13. How long will the sauce stay good in the fridge and can it be frozen?
    PS -Your recipes are awesome!

  14. How long will this keep in the fridge? i’m very excited to give it a try

    How long would this keep for in the fridge??

  16. I am planning on doing your pulled pork in the crockpot tomorrow…i do not have any pineapple but I do have some frozen peaches? Could I use them in place of the pineapple? I would probably need to add a little sweetener, possibly a little maple syrup? Any help with this would be great…also I don’t have fresh tomatoes so thinking I might add a bit of tomato puree. Again thank you for your help, this looks like an awesome recipe and can’t wait to try it.

    • No sweetener needed, just add the peaches and it will work wonderfully. And for the tomatoes, same thing just try and keep the measurements close to what they are

  17. At lunch today I realized I’m eating C4 all day. ;) I had your pancakes for breakfast, pumpkin sliders for lunch, and I have pork in the crock pot now for dinner tonight. It’s a good day. Which explains why I’m here AGAIN getting the recipe for your beasty sauce. Sounds delish. Btw, I wasn’t on pinterest but had to change that after I saw your B&W pic on there…, best one.

  18. This recipe is superb! I’m currently doing the 21 Day Sugar Detox and subbed in some chopped up 2 Granny Smith apples for the pineapple, and it turned out great! I blogged about it and put a link back to your site. Thanks for the inspiration!

  19. Super delicious sauce! I added 1.5 tsp of liquid smoke to my sauce and it was really nice. It gave the sauce the smoky flavor I love in BBQ sauce. :)

  20. Just made this sauce last weekend to go with pulled pork for a big family gathering, and it was a HUGE hit! I think that my grandpa would have licked the serving dish if he could have. Everybody got a link to your site, so hopefully you’ll see some more comments on here! This recipe rocks!!

  21. Absolutely love this sauce with your pulled pork recipe! My hubby who is not a fan of pulled pork loved your recipe, so he actually wanted this for his graduation party. We are planning to serve around 70 people and I wanted to see if you ever tried using a pork loin, if so did it turn out just as good? And if I make and freeze it a week before, will it affect the taste? Thanks again for your fabulous recipes and keep them coming!

    Didn’t have any pineapple and there’s a horrible canadian spring blizzard on the go… But I did have some frozen mangos and it worked perfectly with some pulled pork! Yum :)

  23. Maybe it’s the brand of ingredients I’m using, but this sauce loses all its spiciness the next day. My wife says that’s characteristic of tomato-based sauces, and that the only thing she’s found that retains the spiciness is crushed red pepper flakes. Am I alone in seeing the spiciness disappear?

  24. This looks like a great recipe. Will definitely try it. Not too sure about the pineapple though. I have some molasses might use that instead.

  25. Will this still taste ok without the pineapple? I can’t have it since I am doing the 21DSD.
