I've always loved BBQ sauces, so I made one for my family and friends that I felt really represented the South. As you can see, I make enough to can and give away for gifts. This recipe makes six pints. To can, fill the pint jars to within 1/8-inch of the top. Process in a water bath for 15 minutes.
