Smoky BBQ Sauce (Australian)

A sweet and smoky Australian BBQ sauce will be the perfect accompaniment to barbecues. My all-in-one method is super easy too and takes less than 20 minutes!

  • 400 g tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp black treacle
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1.5 tsp sweet smoked paprika
  • 1 tbsp American mustard
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar


  • Throw all the ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat. Leave to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Once simmered, cool slightly and then blend in a blender until smooth. Serve straight away or cool and store in the fridge until ready to eat.


Tomato sauce - in case anyone wondered, I mean ketchup, as in the condiment itself (not a tin of tomatoes). Use ketchup (any will do).
Onion powder - you can buy it online if you can't find it in supermarkets. We got ours from Costco but they also sell it at Wholefoods Online. 
Storage - store in the fridge in a Tupperware/glass/jar - whatever takes your fancy! Seal it well and it'll keep for a couple of weeks (or more). I expect you can keep it longer but I've only ever kept mine for two weeks.
