The barbecue season is swiftly coming to a close. But we fully intend to soak up as much of the remaining summer sunshine as we can and fire up the grill at least a few more times! And what goes better with some savory grilled meat than some succulent, irresistible barbecue sauce?
I love barbecue sauce. There’s nothing like a hot summer’s evening, surrounded by family and friends, enjoying the great outdoors and gobbling up some tender meat fresh off the grill and slathered in barbecue sauce. Or, equally as pleasant, a cold winter’s day, wrapped up in a warm blanket, snuggled up with my hubby and boys, enjoying slow cooker barbecue ribs in front of a blazing fire while watching football on TV.
But, as usual, I quite dislike unhealthful commercial barbecue sauce which is chock full of sugar, corn syrup, refined salt, and preservatives. All that stuff’s terrible for my waistline and for my health overall. Which is why I determined to invent the best, real food homemade barbecue sauce. The resulting sauce is tangy, spicy, sweet, and sour all at once. It makes the perfect condiment for grilled, baked, or slow cooked meats of all kinds. And it’s so super easy to make!

Do you know if this tastes like Sweet Baby Ray’s sauce? I need to find replacement for it.
Hi, Sue! I honestly have no idea as I don’t believe I’ve ever tried Sweet Baby Ray’s. This recipe is tasty enough though that my boys (ages 5 and 3) and my husband all three like to eat it plain off of a spoon! If I were in your shoes, I’d make a half recipe and try it to see how you like it. 🙂 Let me know how it goes! Have a great day!
