The first homemade barbecue sauce recipe from scratch is worth it's weight in gold. I love it and everyone else does too. It is thick, and has the best sweet and spicy taste anywhere.
There are so many commercial and homemade barbecue sauces out there.

The "Liquid Fire" Habanero BBQ sauce is very tasty and can be also used as an awesome "jerk sauce."
If you are grilling tuna or chicken, you MUST try my blackberry barbecue sauce.
