Simple Homemade BBQ Sauce


Simple Homemade BBQ Sauce
This Simple Homemade BBQ Sauce comes together quickly with just a handful of pantry staples. It is sweet and tangy with a bit of kick and it’s ready in 15 minutes! I know you might be wondering why I would make my own BBQ sauce when it’s so easy to go to the store and pick up a bottle. I personally find many store-bought BBQ sauces to be too sweet and contain ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and preservatives. This homemade BBQ sauce tastes much better than the store-bought kind, so to me, the 15 minutes that it takes to make it is worth it!
