Flame Tree Style BBQ Sauce is sweet, smokey and oh so moreish. Inspired by the iconic sauce from the famous Animal Kingdom quick service, bring a little magic home!
Flame Tree Barbecue is quite possibly one of my favourite quick-service spots in WDW. We ate there three times on our last trip and fell more in love with the food each time. The funniest part is, I’m not even normally a huge fan of Barbecue food, especially BBQ Sauce! Usually, I just find it too sweet BUT this BBQ sauce is the exception – I’m ADDICTED.
Flame Tree Style BBQ Sauce Recipe
This recipe is adapted from the official recipe found on Allears.net – I have scaled it down and adjusted slightly to suit my tastes. This sauce has a slight spicy kick to it, which I personally love.
You can tone it down a little if you wish by reducing the cayenne pepper or using a milder chilli powder. Feel free to ramp it up and add extra chilli too, if that’s how you roll.
Barbecue Sauce Serving Suggestions
I LOVE this drizzled on pulled pork – check out my favourite Coca Cola Pulled Pork recipe with Flame Tree BBQ Rub. You can also use it as a marinade for grilled chicken or other meats. It’s the perfect dip for french fries or beer-battered onion rings. Basically, use it for anything you’d normally use bottled BBQ sauce for!
How to Store Flame Tree Style BBQ Sauce
This sauce will keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. I like to transfer the sauce to a glass jar to store. You can easily make a double batch and keep a stock ready for dipping!
