  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 tbsp BBQ Sauce, your fave
  • 1/2 tsp BBQ seasoning, your fave
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a large pot, add the oil and heat over a medium high heat.

  2. Add in the popcorn kernels and cover the pot with a lid (glass is preferable so you can see the popcorn pop). Let the popcorn kernels pop to create popcorn. Periodically shake the pot to prevent burning.

  3. When the popping slows to once every 4 seconds, turn off the heat and take the lid off the pot.

  4. While the popcorn is popping, make the seasoned butter by mixing the melted butter, BBQ sauce and BBQ seasoning.

  5. Pour seasoned butter into the popcorn pot and toss together thoroughly.

  6. Serve popcorn straight away.
