my homemade barbecue sauce

Recipe by

The simple story behind this sauce is I ran out of barbecue sauce. Every ingredient in this recipe I had on hand. Everything is put in a pot and allowed to marinate and cook together. It's a delicious tangy sauce that is great on chicken especially. Try it on pork too. It was so good my son said "mama you could bottle this stuff." No more bottled barbecue sauce for me. It's just that good.
