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! πŸ˜€
