This Spicy Mustard BBQ Sauce is a delicious combination of spicy and tangy. It’s so delicious on so many meats and foods, but I especially love to eat it with chicken or pork. I make this to serve alongside my other bbq sauces when I have a cookout with friends and family. It has just that perfect amount of zest and everyone always loves it!

Spicy Mustard BBQ Sauce

For as long as I remember, I’ve always loved my Mama’s Coca-Cola BBQ sauce. It is what I grew up on her chicken, meatloaf and so many other dishes. But then, on a trip to South Carolina after my husband and I were married, I ventured over into the other side of BBQ sauces – away from the red and sweet to the yellowish orange and tangy. While I won’t say that it replaced the BBQ sauce that I’ve loved since I was a little girl, I readily admit that when I now love to make all sorts of BBQ sauces at my house depending on what I’m planning to serve. I also like to make a selection so that guests have an option.

If you are looking for another BBQ sauce to add to your line up for an upcoming party or just to try something a little different from your usual sauce that you serve, you might want to make this to try as an option. It is one that I certainly enjoy!

  2. I liked the sauce but felt it the mustard flavor was a bit strong. I added 1/4 cup of pineapple juice and cooked it a little longer (about a minute) and then the sauce was much tastier (to me anyways,….)

    1. To reduce the mustard intensity but maintain the flavor profile try adding 1/4 cup of apple juice or cider.

  3. Gave this a try last night with chicken and its very good! Will definitely be making it again.

  4. My new favorite yellow sauce. Just had it on pulled pork. I kickked it up a little (i like it hot). Super easy quick sauce!

  5. Legit. I used Crystal for the hot sauce and preferred it to Tabasco or Cholula, but this is pure flavor profile on an individual bases.

  6. I used dejon mustard instead of yellow mustard. It gave it a better taste to me and everyone loved it. Will continue to make this in the future. Thanks for the recipe.
