Grape Jelly BBQ Sauce - Apple Jelly BBQ Sauce

I like this a lot for ribs, pulled pork or chicken. I make what I need rather than using a full bottle of BBQ sauce and this is why I use ratios instead of measurements.

  • 2 parts BBQ sauce
  • 1 part Apple jelly or Grape jelly


  • Combine BBQ sauce and jelly in a pan over medium-low heat and stir occasionaly until combined.
  • Let cool and it's ready to be served or refrigerated.


I like to use Sweet Baby Rays sweet and spicy BBQ sauce for this even though it's not my favorite by itself. Use whatever you want. All that matters is you like it!
Recipe tip - You can use a syrup made from half juice and half sugar heated/reduced until it's a syrup. I've done this with an apple syrup and it combines more easily and I liked it better but this takes extra effort to make the syrup instead of using already made jelly.
