When canning BBQ sauce in plastic bottles, is the process the same as when glass bottles are used?

It seems like the heat would melt plastic.

Well, it's better to use glass because plastic would be melt with heat. So you are right in your assumption. Thus, you should be able to use glass bottles just fine.

You do not "can" in plastic, you decan and put it in the fridge! Yes, heat will melt plastic bottles. The alternative is to can under pressure in glass jars.
