I love whipping up a batch of homemade BBQ sauce, and thought I would share my recipe with you.
This sauce has tons of spices to give it a nice, rich flavor.
To make it, simply combine everything in a saucepan.
Mix it all together and simmer it over low heat for about 5-10 minutes.
Give it a taste. If you want it a little sweeter, add a little more brown sugar or honey.
Store it in a jar in your fridge, and let it sit for 24 hours. Enjoy as you like!

Thank you Adam! Yes, we are doing well. Anxiously awaiting word as to where the Army is sending us upon the completion of our "tour" up here in Alaska. We are hoping to return to the land of grits and sweet tea :)

I like this sauce best with beef, but I will use it for other things that use barbecue sauce as an ingredient, like some crockpot pork ribs I made tonight for dinner :)
Love it! I'm a big fan of BBQ sauce. I even had BBQ pulled pork for dinner tonight.

I was so shocked when I first learned ketchup was the base for most BBQ sauces.
