Notes about this recipe

  • Aggie92 on July 02, 2014

    This is my Go-To homemade barbecue sauce - it is not sweet, which is just the way I like it. I've made it with and without the barbecue rub and prefer it without (doesn't run the risk of clogging my squirt bottles) and the flavor of the spices gets lost. Add the liquid smoke at the end of cooking, otherwise it fades too much. Use mesquite liquid smoke for a Texas flair or hickory for a taste of the South. Can double the Tabasco for a nice, spicy kick.
