Dr. Pepper BBQ Sauce

There's nothing like some good BBQ with friends on a long weekend.  This Labor Day we invited some friends over for a cookout; I made a brisket and the Poblano Corn Pudding (Casserole) and asked everyone else to bring a side dish.  The brisket turned out delicious and the Dr. Pepper BBQ sauce made it melt in your mouth.  Here's my recipe for a delicious BBQ sauce.  Enjoy!

Dr. Pepper BBQ Sauce


  • 3 cups Dr. Pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt


Smash the garlic cloves with the flat side of a large knife, mash and smear mixture to a coarse paste.

Stir garlic paste, cola, ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire, chili powder, black pepper, hot sauce and allspice together in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 45 minutes.  Allow to cool slightly, stir in the lime juice, salt and season with black pepper and hot sauce, to taste.
