Sweet 'n' Tangy Barbecue Sauce

Raven Higheagle


For years I have been thinking of making my own barbecue sauce and just haven’t. It wasn’t that I was intimidated by the process, it’s really very simple, it was more that I loved one particular sauce. My husband and I love the barbecue sauce from Wood Ranch. I even have a cousin that would pack some up and bring it out every time she came to visit!
Recently I decided to try to crack the code and make my own version of this sauce. Let me tell you that was the plan. This sauce ISN”T Wood Ranch barbecue sauce but it was so good that I had to share it with you. My husband absolutely loved it!
