Homemade BBQ Sauce - Better Than Store-bought!


Admittedly, we're not huge sauce fans. Meat should be good enough to speak for itself. But hey, sometimes you just need it. We scratched up this recipe as a sauce for our pulled pork sandwich but by golly it works great on everything! Sweet, savory, tangy and a lil heat, its a perfect go-to sauce that doesn't take much work!
