Overnight Tennessee Twitch BBQ Sauce

There were a few things I learned to make in Tennessee that everyone loves. Biscuits, Macaroni and cheese, and BBQ sauce! 

This week, since I am on a recipe kick, I thought I'd share my Tennessee Twitch BBQ sauce recipe. Shhhhh, don't tell anyone!  It's got a kick to it, so you may want to back off the spices if you can't handle spicy sauces.

I had to alter my original recipe for allergy purposes but this is the closest recipe I can get to our original Tennessee BBQ sauce. We call it the Tennessee Twitch because when I start making it, our fingers are twitching in delightful anticipation! 

Tennessee Twitch BBQ Sauce Ingredients
Cooking your Tennessee Twitch BBQ sauce
  • In a crock-pot, mix Ketchup and Coca Cola.
  • Add molasses and stir well. Then add sugar and stir well. It may feel a little grainy on the bottom. That's okay.
  • Add all your spices (add some extras if you want) and stir well.
  • Cover and let cook on high for 5-6 hours. 
  • Cool and place in fridge overnight so the flavors marry.
  • The next day, bring it out and warm it when you are ready to use it. 

To rush it... You can actually eat it after it's done cooking for the 5-6 hours. If you are in a huge rush, you can cook it on the stove top. Heat it on med-high to a nice bubbling boil, then turn it down and let it simmer on lo-med for about 45 minutes to an hour. 

BUT... I personally like the flavor after it has cooked in a crock-pot and sat overnight in the fridge.

This is the best BBQ sauce we've had and I love making it. It tastes so good. It has a touch of a kick to it that I like in BBQ sauces. 

It's great for dipping or marinading or just smothering some pulled beef.
