Condiment Essentials: Tableside Pork BBQ Sauce

Andy Anderson !


This is a great BBQ for use at the table… FYI, I usually put it into a squeeze bottle, and let my guests choose as much as they want.

It is easy/peasy to put together, and combines a perfect balance between sweet, sour, and heat. I use it primarily on pork; however, it does a real good job on chicken.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
