My Mama’s Coca Cola BBQ Sauce is a tangy, delicious bbq sauce that is perfect on so many dishes from pulled pork to chicken to ribs. It’s been a favorite in my family for decades and remains high on my list of most loved bbq sauces.

Mama’s Coca Cola BBQ Sauce

My Mama makes a sweet and tangy BBQ sauce that I just absolutely love. It goes great with pulled pork, BBQ chicken, meatloaf, and of course on ribs. Mama’s bbq sauce is certainly one of my all time favorites.

How to Make Coca Cola BBQ Sauce Recipe

Here’s how my Mama makes her BBQ sauce.

Add ketchup to a small sauce pan over low to medium heat.

Next add in your Worcestershire sauce (or coconut aminos), along with your Stone House Seasoning. If you do not have Stone House Seasoning on hand, you can simply combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder for this recipe.

And of course some delicious Coca-Cola, or Coke.

Next comes the brown sugar.

And a few dashes of hot sauce for that bit of spicy kick.

This sauce works great with any meats, but is especially good with chicken and pork.

While it may not be like your Mama’s BBQ Sauce, I don’t think your Mama would mind so much if you give it a try. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does!

    1. I’ve not made it that way, so I’m not sure if it will taste exactly the same. Thanks so much!

    2. Diet soda DOES AFFECT the taste. If that sauce is basted on the meat during the final minutes to glaze, it won’t caramelize properly and tastes strange. Recommend using Coke made with real sugar.

  1. 5 stars
    This recipe saved my ribs. My go-to method is smoking in a bullet smoker (WSM) which I have down pat but I needed to do this as an overnighter as I only had 3 hr the next morning.

    I found a crock pot recipe that used this sauce. 10 Hour on low was way to long for spares but this sauce saved them.

    I did add about a tablespoon of molasses and 1/2t of cayenne (more punchy than hot sauce–I have a homemade scotch bonnet sauce but with pineapples in it and being scotch bonnets I felt the cayenne was the better way to go).

    I increased the above sauce by 50% to accomodate 6lb of spares (raw) with the above noted additions.

    This was very very good.

  2. I have used this several times as an overnight marinade for my pork ribs .
    If slow cooking, no more than 4 hours , or it tends to break down a bit, but still fantastically sweet !

    Robyn… Your mama’s Coca-Cola BBQ sauce is definitely 5 * and I’d give it more if I could. I used it yesterday in the slow cooker with boneless country style pork ribs and they turned out melt-in-your-mouth delicious. My only regrets… there were no leftovers. Thank you for sharing !!

  4. GREAT bbq SUACE, TRY ADDING A LITTLE TOUCH OF MOLASSES, AND Dr. pepper in place of the Coke the DR.
    pepper has a bit more caramelized flavor

    Made this tonight for ribs and it was delicious! I didn’t have Worcestershire sauce so I subbed half apple cider vinegar and half Bragg’s seasoning (didn’t even think it through, just winged it). So yummy! Will be coming back to this recipe again and again.

  6. This sounds wonderful but hubby just diagnosed with diabetes. Any idea if this would work with Splenda brown sugar and diet soda? Thanks so much.

    Made this with pork ribs and it was amazing. Made it again with pulled pork and I’m looking forward to it for dinner. I’ve made other bbq sauces much more complicated and still, nothing else compares to this one! Sweet, tangy, delicious! Thanks for sharing.

  8. Funny enough I strongly dislike Ketchup and Coca-Cola. But I made this recipe anyway and it was absolutely delicious!! Thank you! I made it with your stuffed peppers. It was a wonderful dinner last night Thanks to you!
