Default Can I Pressure Can BBQ sauce?

I canned some BBQ sauce this weekend and used the boiling water method. I had to do two batches because I couldn't double stack the pint jars in my AA 921 and cover with water. I followed a recipe that called for the boiling method. It seamed like a waste of energy to me.

I find it is much easier to pressure can than using the boiling water method. Can I pressure can (using much less water) BBQ sauce, tomato's etc?

I would use much less water and energy using 2-3 inches vs. boiling a full pot of water and I could double stack the jars and do it all at once.

I haven't done BBQ sauce but I also prefer pressure canning to water bath when possible. My manual for my All American 921 has instructions for pressure canning tomatoes on page 33. 10 pounds for 10 minutes for pints and quarts. Message Jackie Clay about the BBQ sauce and I bet she could help you with the time to presssure can. I'd be interested in knowing as well.

Edited to add that when I look in my Ball book the process times are different depending on if tomatoes are packed in water or own juice so do check it out before you do it so you use the correct time for your case.

That is a bit of a contradiction.


You can pressure can or you can boiling water (bath) can.

You can pressure can anything that can be BWB canned.


Sometime it is faster and sometimes not. If I am going to do a single batch then a PC. I f I am going to do repetitive batches I BWB can because I can drop jars into already hot water and reduce the time that way.
