I’m not a fan of BBQ sauces, 

but I have always loved this sauce that came from the

Tunnel BBQ Restaurant in Windsor, Ontario.

This restaurant was in business from 1941 until it closed it’s doors in 2014.

A few years back I was given a copycat recipe for this sauce.

It is pretty close in flavour to the original. 

And it is very easy to make. No cooking involved.

It is made from ingredients that most will have on hand.

Although, every time I make it I have to go out and buy a bottle of ketchup.

This sauce is the only thing I make with ketchup

Not something I ever have on hand.  

Wonderful on wings and ribs.

TBQ Sauce

(Source: Windsor Newspaper) 

1/2 cup Ketchup
1/2 cup prepared mustard
1/2 cup vinegar white
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons chile powder
1/4 cup white sugar.

Place all ingredients in a blender and mix.  Refrigerate.
Seems to last forever.


Original direction suggested that the sauce didn’t need to be refrigerated.   I stored mine in the refrigerator.

I don’t add the sugar. I prefer a more savory BBQ dipping sauce and the ketchup makes it

sweet enough for our taste.
