Franklin BBQ inspired homemade vinegar based barbecue sauce recipe

Here is a great BBQ sauce recipe that was inspired by Aaron Franklin of Franklin BBQ. We show you how to make homemade BBQ sauce from scratch. This vinegar based homemade BBQ sauce is perfect on pulled pork, pork loin, even BBQ chicken and anything you want a bit of Franklin BBQ sauce on. I love that vinegar BBQ sauce flavor and savory sweetness gained from the simple ingredient list for this home made BBQ sauce recipe. Great on pulled pork or even beef, I tend to go for vinegar based BBQ sauce on pulled pork. I made one simple change and thats substituting the chili powder for chipotle powder. Does that qualify to make it my own? Tell us what you think.
One medium yellow onion chopped
Half pound of butter melted in sauce pan
One and a half cups of low fructose (sugar) ketchup
Half cup of apple cider vinegar
2 ounces light brown sugar
About a tablespoon of chipotle powder
About a teaspoon of granulated garlic
A little more than a tablespoon of black pepper
About a teaspoon of salt

Caramelize the onions in the melted butter over medium heat. Then add all the rest of the ingredients and simmer over medium heat stirring regularly. Simmer until desired thickness. Pour into container and let cool and drain off excess oil that will form on the top. Or you can leave it just the way it is. You will love this tangy bbq sauce recipe!Try adding or subtracting the chipotle powder to get the desired heat. That’s it, cheers!
