Normally when I think about BBQ sauce I think about the common tomato based, red, BBQ sauce but there are other kinds of BBQ sauces! Some of the main kinds of BBQ sauce include: the red BBQ sauce with a tomato base, a white BBQ sauce with a mayonnaise base, a yellow BBQ sauce with a mustard base and a vinegar BBQ sauce with a vinegar base. Although I always enjoy the standard red BBQ sauce I also particularly like this yellow mustard based BBQ sauce!
Just like red BBQ sauce, there a about a million different versions of mustard BBQ sauces and this is my one of favourites, it’s simple and tasty! The star of the show is the yellow, ‘ballpark’, mustard with it’s amazing mustard ‘bite’! It has a sweetness that comes from both honey and brown sugar, which also brings that hint of molasses. Apple cider vinegar gives it a nice tanginess and the remaining seasonings are onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper and a bit of cayenne for the spicy heat. You can use mustard BBQ sauce in the same ways that you use tomato BBQ sauce and I enjoy it on grilled chicken, roast or smoked pork or beef, in sandwiches, etc.
It’s great on pulled pork!
Mustard BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches are divine, especially with a tasty homemade coleslaw!
Mustard BBQ sauces are more common in South Carolina.

Boy, this looks so good and will be making soon. Thanks so much. All your recipes look divine.
Hi, this BBQ sauce looks yummy. I’d like to make enough to can. Any idea how long to process?
I make this as needed rather than canning it for long term storage. You should be able to can it but you would have to look into proper canning procedures for it.
thank you, mustard based sauces are underappreciated in bbq or as a base for other sauces, and a lot of traditional bbq sauces are too sweet for me, so this works!
