Homemade Slow Cooker Barbeque Sauce

*Apple cider or apple cider vinegar can be used in this recipe. I have used both and can't tell much of a difference. Most of the time I use apple cider vinegar, though, because I always have it in the pantry.

  • 1/2 cup corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 8 oz tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider*
  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon Cavenders Greek seasoning
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Place all ingredients in a slow cooker. Stir to combine. Heat to 200 degrees F. Cook 4 hours. If sauce isn't desired consistancy remove lid and cook 1 to 2 hours longer. Stir occastional with a whisk. Bottle and store in the refrigerator.
  • *For a completely smooth sauce, puree in a blender until smooth. I have left it chunky and I have pureed. It's good both ways. When I pureed the sauce, I did so before cooking it.
