Sweet and Tangy Homemade BBQ Sauce

This recipe is for a Carolina-style BBQ sauce, which can be used with my Southern-Style BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches.

I also like to tweak this sauce to use as BBQ sauce for many other recipes, by adding more or less of ingredients to taste. Sometimes I like spicier, sweeter, etc.

I like to make grilled BBQ Chicken, BBQ Chicken Pizza, BBQ Chicken Drumsticks, you name it! Once you try homemade BBQ sauce, it’s hard to go back to the jarred ones! 😀
