Georgia Mustard BBQ Sauce

This Georgia mustard BBQ sauce is quite delicious when mixed with pulled pork. It can also be used as a basting sauce for low and slow-smoked meats. If you choose to use this Georgia mustard BBQ sauce for quicker grilled items like chicken breasts and pork chops, I recommend applying it during the last 15 minutes of cook time. I often use this BBQ sauce for pulled pork and serve it on the side as a table sauce. This way, family and friends can load up on more if needed. If you’re a huge fan of mustard, this sauce is for you!

Georgia Mustard BBQ Sauce:

This sauce originated from the German immigrants living in the Georgia and Carolina areas. While you can use traditional American yellow mustard for this recipe, I recommend seeking a good quality German mustard instead. Another option is Dijon, which has a spicier kick. If I don’t have German mustard on hand, I will combine yellow mustard with Dijon. 

Experiment with this Georgia mustard BBQ sauce! And adjust the sugar content to suit your taste buds. 

Ingredients:

  • Mustard (Yellow, Dijon, or German
  • Dark brown (contains more molasses than light brown sugar, and we want that for this recipe)
  • Cider vinegar
  • Worcestershire sauce

Notes

Things to think about with this recipe:
Mustard: This sauce has its link to early German immigrants in the Georgia and Carolina areas. While you can use a more traditional American hot dog mustard for this recipe, you can certainly seek out German mustard for a more robust flavor or Dijon for a spicier kick. I use a combination of American and Dijon or just plain American mustard--either way, it works pretty well. So, experiment and adjust the sugar content to suit your tastes.
