Honey-Garlic Barbecue Sauce

READY IN: 24hrs
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

If you are using this as a tenderizer/marinade then mix in 3 teaspoons powdered meat tenderizer, I use Club House brand but any kind will do. Plan ahead this must be refrigerated for a minimum of 24 hours before using. If you prefer a sweeter sauce then increase brown sugar to taste, if desired you may adjust all ingredients to suit taste. Use 1 tablespoon seasoned salt for this (I use Lawry's seasoned salt) and white salt to season at the end of cooking if necessary. This is great on chicken and ribs!

This is excellent. Perfect combination of flavors. Used it on pulled pork and barbecued chicken. One of the best sauces I've ever used,
