Meet my favorite BBQ Sauce.

I’m fairly certain it’s not like any other you’ve had before. This was adapted from a family recipe that’s been passed down through the years… I changed it up a bit (can’t go giving away all the family secrets ;))and made it to my liking and BOY is it good!!!

This is the sauce we used on our ribs for the rib-off we entered at church. One of the comments on the judging cards was, “Best sauce EVER. It’s like a party in my mouth!” haha And there you have it…

Use my favorite BBQ Rub¬†& rub it on a pork butt or some baby back ribs… slow cook those babies and finish¬†them off with this sauce. Oh. My. Word.

Some recipes that would go GREAT with this Sauce (excuse some of the old and hideously orange-ish photos haha):

Take advantage of the summer heat… break out your grills and keep your kitchens cool! Barbecue the heck out of something, ya’ll!
