The Bomb BBQ Sauce

The Bomb BBQ Sauce

Nothing finishes your BBQ off like a rich, delicious sauce! I’ve tried my fair share of sauces but this one is the Bomb! It’s sweet, savory, mouth watering goodness compliments the homemade BBQ Rub. It only takes a few minutes to throw this together! A friend shared her recipe and I changed it to accommodate the ingredients I keep stocked in my pantry. It’s great on BBQ Pork, BBQ Burgers, beef hot dogs, sausage, chicken, veggie burgers, and so much more! The sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 months. It’s a staple in my kitchen, I always have some ready to serve! Please leave a comment to let me know how you like it!
