We tried this sauce and it was easy to make and an excellent BBQ sauce. We suggest making extra and storing it in containers so you can enjoy your homemade sauce any time you want it without having to make it fresh.
Don’t forget that part of the joy of making your own food from scratch is that you can customize it any way you like! Add brown sugar as a sweetener, red pepper flakes for spice, or Adobo peppers for a hot and tasty spice.
