Ever want to escape the weather? Some choose to go to an all inclusive resort, other choose to have special weekend away in seclusion and than there is some that just pretend to relive the summer and make a kicked up barbecue chicken sauce in the middle of January.
I guess for this week I am the latter of the three described above. For me, nothing beats the barbecue. The thrill of the grill and the flavors make my mouth water, hairs stand up and belly growl. For today, I thought I would share one of my favorite sauces to have on hand – homemade barbecue chicken sauce. This BBQ sauce can we used on just about anything… from chicken, beef, pork, vegetables, rice, nachos, you name it.
I am pretty sure you could smear this BBQ sauce on your car bumper and love it.
