Spring Creek Barbecue Sauce

The official Spring Creek barbecue sauce recipe may be a secret, but you can make one that tastes very similar by following the instructions here. Spring Creek cooks use the company's Original Sauce to top barbecue dishes at their restaurant locations. The sauce is also available for sale by the bottle at all of their eateries.

Spring Creek Barbecue claims to offer "The Great Taste of Texas," and operates multiple locations throughout the areas of Dallas/Fort Worth, East Texas, and Houston. Spring Creek has been around for more than 30 years, and specializes in ribs, turkey, ham, sausage, chicken and beef. They also serve side dishes like okra, French fries, and baked potatoes.[1] The barbecue sauce at Spring Creek is not particularly spicy, but has a noticeable sweet note, a vibrant red color, and visible seasonings.[2]

Jalapeno Barbecue Sauce

This recipe is similar to the one for Spring Creek barbecue sauce, but has the kick of jalapenos.


  • For vegetarian sauce, substitute vegetable stock or beer for the beef stock.
  • For a spicier barbecue sauce, add a dash of Tabasco sauce or chili powder.
  • For Cajun-style barbecue sauce, add a dash or two of a Cajun seasoning blend like Zatarain's.
  • If the sauce ends up too thick, slowly add water to thin it out again.
