Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce

The debate over bbq sauce is never ending, Alabama White Sauce, the array of Carolina Sauces, Kansas City Sauce, or Texas Style, all boast being the best.

Personally I prefer a sweet sauce with a touch of spice. I like a sauce with brown sugar for it’s molassesy flavor……when you grill with it you get those crispy burnt edges that make bbq.

Spice is equally as important, just a touch of back ground heat and besides with Tim….it always needs to be spicy!

No matter your grill choice get ready for the summer BBQ season with our Spicy Sweet BBQ Sauce!
