Homemade Tangy Barbecue Sauce Recipe


There's just something satisfying about making your own basic ingredients. Yes, it's "normal" and oh-so-simple to pick up a jar of your favorite barbecue sauce off of the store shelves. I've done it. I have my favorites. But knowing exactly what is in my delicious sweet, sticky, spicy sauce makes me feel that much better about what I'm eating. (Even if there is a lot of sugar involved. :D)
