Kitchen Hack - Enhancing Store Bought BBQ

Enhancing store-bought BBQ sauce with Devil's Fire Wine Jelly can add a unique and delicious flavor to your dishes. Here's a simple step-by-step guide to making your BBQ sauce better with the addition of our spicy wine jelly:


  • Store-bought BBQ sauce (choose your favorite brand or flavor)
  • Devil's Fire Wine Jelly (you can find this at specialty stores or make your own by combining wine, sugar, and chili peppers)
  • Optional: Other spices and seasonings like garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, etc., to taste


  1. Start with the BBQ sauce: Pour the desired amount of store-bought BBQ sauce into a mixing bowl. This will serve as the base for your enhanced sauce.

  2. Add the Devil's Fire Wine Jelly: Measure out the spicy wine jelly, and add it to the bowl with the BBQ sauce. The amount you add will depend on your personal preference for spiciness and sweetness. Start with a small amount and gradually increase until you achieve the desired flavor.

  3. Mix thoroughly: Use a whisk or spoon to thoroughly mix the BBQ sauce and Devil's Fire Wine Jelly together. Ensure that the wine jelly is evenly distributed throughout the sauce.

  4. Taste and adjust: Try a small amount of the sauce to assess the flavor. If you want it spicier, add more spicy wine jelly. For extra sweetness, add more jelly as well. If it's too sweet or spicy for your taste, you can balance it out by adding more of the original BBQ sauce.

  5. Heat the sauce (optional): If you prefer a warm or slightly cooked sauce, you can heat it in a saucepan over low heat. Just be careful not to overheat or burn the sauce.

  6. Store and serve: Once you've achieved the desired flavor, store the enhanced BBQ sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This will allow the flavors to meld together even more. When you're ready to use it, simply serve it alongside your favorite grilled or smoked dishes.

Remember, the key to making your store-bought BBQ sauce better with Devil's Fire is to experiment with the flavors and find the perfect balance that suits your taste preferences. Enjoy your delicious and unique BBQ sauce.
