Homemade BBQ sauce is perfect for all your outdoor barbecuing. Add to chicken, ribs or shredded pork.
I love when the weather finally gets warm enough to really barbecue outside. Don't get me wrong....we use our gas grill outside all year long. But during the warm days, I don't have to bundle up, dash outside and quickly tend to the meal.
Instead, I can linger, savor the smells, and check all my flowers growing on the deck. To me nothing says summer quite like grilling and a great BBQ Sauce! This is one you are going to love!
This sauce is perfect for chicken, ribs or one of my favorite non-grilled meals, pulled pork and used as a dipping sauce with these chicken tenders or chicken nuggets.
You'll also want to make oven baked BBQ chicken legs with this sauce.
I also have another great BBQ sauce - this Blackberry BBQ sauce!

I love that you grill year round! When we go to visit my mom, we like grilling there during the colder months. She has a gas grill on her front porch, so it's covered and (relatively) comfy. 🙂 But yeah, you're totally right-- grilling in warm weather is tops. I do love a good homemade bbq recipe, thanks for sharing!
I love bbq sauce on just about anything!
Summer grilling is our favorite too! Love this homemade barbecue sauce! It's perfect for the grilling season!
