How To Make Sriracha BBQ Sauce
Easy instructions are what make great barbecue sauces! The step-by-step directions below will have you enjoying it in no time at all.

Step Two: Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes.
Step Three: Using an immersion blender, blend all the ingredients together until smooth.
It's going to be hot and ready - so enjoy!
Fresh peaches - Instead of using canned peaches, fresh peaches are a great idea as well! Save that juice just like you would from the canned ones. No matter what type of peaches you use, this peach BBQ sauce recipe will taste great.
Liquid smoke - A little bit of liquid smoke will give that grill taste and flavor. This is totally optional but is a great idea.
Apple cider vinegar - You can use this type of vinegar as well.
Fresh ginger - Fresh ginger compliments the flavor of the peaches nicely. You can add a teaspoon or two to taste.
Roasted garlic - Throw in a few cloves of roasted garlic before pureeing the sauce to give this a roasted garlic bbq sauce flavor.
Ketchup - Instead of adding in tomato sauce, tomato paste, and sugar, some people like to use ketchup as a shortcut. (some people squeeze in some mustard as well for a salty flavor!)
Chili powder - When it comes to wanting some extra spice, chili powder is a great option. Red pepper flakes work great as well.
Molasses - Adding molasses can give a sticky texture and a great flavor. This won't add much sweetness, so I don't recommend using it in the place of the honey, but it's a great addition regardless.
