Chef´s Choice – Homemade BBQ-Sauces

Texas Whiskey Sauce

BBQ TimeSummertime is BBQ time. And a good barbecue meal tradtionally includes delicious sauces. Of course, nowadays you can find a wide range of prefabricated sauces in the supermarket shelves, but it’s also fun to create your own sauces. To give you readers a few suggestions, I publish a little series of quick and easy recipes for homemade barbecue sauces.

Your imagination has no limits, changing and complementing the recipes to your taste!


  • Texas Whiskey70 ml olive oil
  • 125 ml vegetable stock
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 3 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Teriyaki- or Sojasauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 40 ml Bourbon Whiskey (e.g. Jack Daniels)
  • chili powder (to taste)
  • salt, freshly ground pepper


BBQ Texas SauceHeat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat and add the onion. Cook about 4-5 minutes, until the onion pieces are slightly brown and softened.

Stir in the garlic and vegetable stock.

Add ketchup and season with salt, pepper and chili powder.

Mingle in the Whiskey and give the sauce a sweet touch with honey and Teriyaki sauce.

Simmer on low heat until the sauce thickens.

The sauce is also excellent for marinating.

Born in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany in 1957, I was educated at a Baccalaureate High School. Later completed Technical University with a degree in Economic Informatics. I served for 12 years in the German Army before joining a French computer company for another 10 years. Then ran my own motorcycle and gastronomy businesses before deciding to retire. I arrived in North Cyprus with my second wife in 2004 and since her sad loss in 2011, I have kept myself very busy trying to help others with similar problems and in 2012 became the Secretary of “The Foreign Residents in the TRNC” (TFR). I am very keen to see expat communities coming together and playing their part in helping North Cyprus, our adopted homeland.
