Spent some time in the spice isle of the grocery this morning and

It does appear that all the spices are sold "net wt."

The 4oz can of McCormic pepper is 4oz net wt.

note... the only spice sold at my market in the Square can is McCormic Ground pepper... so if you're after Garlic Salt or others they will be in little jars...

so measured by weight the oz's of spices for the BBQ sauce..

It's simmering now, more later....

Thanks All!

Eric, Austin Tx.

All packaged foods are sold "net weight" which means the weight of the product. So 4 oz, net weight means just the spice. Gross weight includes the weight of the container.

Have you considered making 1/4 instead of 1/3? That way, you would use 18 fl. oz of ketchup and water, 1 cup vinegar, 1 oz (1/2 Tbsp) of each of the spices and the Tabasco. I would go with the BTW for the mustard because I have no idea about the apple thing.
