Sweet and Tangy Barbecue Sauce

Christy Burkett


I have tried for years to find just the right barbecue sauce without much success. I took me three years of trial and error to find the right combination of ingredients to make a good all purpose sauce and this is the result. I have used this on pork, beef, and chicken and it is delicious on all.
