Store bought barbecue sauce used to be a staple on my shopping list until I took time out and tried my hand at it: things have never been the same since.
The store-bought alternative is full of sugar, artificial flavoring,coloring and a whole bunch of preservatives while lacking complexity in flavor. Don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to market this recipe as a magic solution to your health and weight problems, but life is all about balance and a little cheat once in a while is exactly what the doctor would prescribe.
Striking the perfect chord of sugar, spice…and well, everything nice, is the key to creating a sauce that will transform about every kind of meat you can imagine and ensure your guests leave the table singing praises.
