This was a delightful switch from my normal bbq sauce. The flavor is a bit different, but different in a great way. The leftover sauce can be stored in the fridge to use later. Shock your friends and let them try to guess that "secret ingredient"!

  3. Stir well and simmer for twenty minutes.
  4. Finish the sauce by whisking in the cold butter for extra body and flavor.
