The Secret for a Great Barbecue Is Really in the Sauce

We have hear a ton of time that the secreat for a great barbecue is in the sauce. Well, it migth be! What is a barbecue chicken, a rack of barbecue ribs or a t-bone steak without a accompaining sauce? Well I am sure this can spark a debate among different school of though ( or I should say barbecuing?…) about the need of sauce, but my own personal experience has lead me to believe that the secret is in the sauce.

Let me share with you four barbecue sauce recipes and you will be the judge!

Simple Pork Barbeque Sauce
