  • Method: stovetop
  • Cuisine: American, New England


2 6-ounce cans tomato paste

1 cup molasses

1 cup brown sugar

¼ cup grape jelly

2 cups water

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 teaspoon dry mustard powder (we used Colman‘s)

1 teaspoon dry ground ginger

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon onion powder


Place all ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to a boil, then lower to a fast simmer and cook 15 minutes uncovered. Use immediately or refrigerate until needed.


We show BBQ chicken wings in our photos above – here’s how we made them:

Sprinkle 3 pounds of chicken drumettes and wingettes with two teaspoons of kosher salt and one tablespoon of freshly ground black pepper along with ¼ cup of vegetable oil.

Grill on oiled grill grates over high heat on both sides to crisp the skin. Move to a cool side of the grill and close the cover and cook for about ten minutes until cooked through and tender. Mix a little hot sauce (optional) in with the BBQ sauce and brush on about 1 ½ cups onto both sides of the wings and cook back on the hot side of the grill just long enough to get a charred skin.

Once the sauce goes on, be careful not to burn. They will only need a minute or two to get the BBQ skin charred.
