This traditional barbecue sauce of Western Kentucky Mutton Barbecue isn't like most barbecue sauces you've tried. While you can use it to baste meat, you'll also want to serve it as a dipping sauce.

What You'll Need

  • 4 cups water
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup ​​vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic

How to Make It

1. Mix all ingredients together in a large saucepan over a low heat. Simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring often.

2. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Serve on the table as a dipping sauce. You can also use this sauce to baste smoked lamb. Store sauce in an airtight container in refrigerator for 7 days after preparation.
