Root Beer BBQ Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

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"!
