Made for PRMR!<br/>Not a very hard sauce to make. Very Flavorful. I will be making this again soon. Thanks or the recipe!

Easy! Sweet with a slight pep kick, just as I like my BBQ sauce. I used local butter, my own roasted tomato puree, celery seed instead of celery salt, a little bit of Spanish smoked paprika in place of some of the regular paprika. Simmered uncovered 20 minutes which was perfect: not thin but not too thick. Reviewed for Photo Tag/Early Fall.
