    Smoking Ketchup

    Will it BBQ? Ketchup!

    In this segment we pose the question and the answer to Will it BBQ? So much more than just hamburgers, hot dogs, and other meats can be BBQ'd, Grilled, or Smoked. And, this is where we try out unique ideas for cooking on a grill or smoker. This week we are BBQ'ing Ketchup and letting you know if it will BBQ or not!

    Prep Time

    Cook Time

    Bottled Ketchup

    Utensils Needed



    Empty Ketchup bottle into a foil pan or a pot of some sort that you don't mind ruining. You want to try to spread it as thin in the pan to allow as much of the Ketchup to be exposed to the smoke as possible as the smoke will only penetrate the Ketchup about 1/8" of an inch. Smoked at 150° for 1 hour over your choice of wood, we chose apple wood chips.

    So, Will it BBQ?

    There are so many different types of mustard but not really many specialty Ketchups and now we know that this is a huge mistake on the condiment makers part! This picked up an excellent amount of smoke and it would be amazing on hamburgers, hotdogs or anything else you want to add even more of a grilled flavor to!
