Homemade BBQ Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by michelles3boys

I have been tweaking a couple of BBQ sauce recipes and came up with one that I am really happy with. I am putting it here for safekeeping. I guess I would describe it as sweet, spicy and slightly tangy. If you would like it to have a little more kick, you could add 1/4 teaspoon more of chili powder. Please feel free to tweak my recipe to make it your own. I look forward to your comments.

You've got a winner here, Michelle! A perfect combination of sweet, tangy and smoky. I made it this morning and let it sit in the fridge for about 10 hours. Served as a dipping sauce for Morning Star Buffalo Wings and TJ's Trader Potato Tots. So yummy! I will be passing this recipe on to my SIL because my nephew LOVES BBQ sauce and this is better than anything you can buy in a grocery store. Thanks for sharing!
