It’s that time of year! And by that I mean, time to fire up that grill for some backyard cookin’! I love grilling out in the summer but I’m not really a big fan of bottled/processed barbecue sauce. Today I am sharing an easy, healthy, and delicious barbecue sauce recipe that your whole family will love! Another bonus of making your own is you reduce risk of cross-contamination with any of the foods your family is allergic to! Not just healthier, but safer!
I got some yummy Smithfield ribs at Walmart to go with our homemade barbecue sauce. My family seriously loves ribs so it was an easy choice.
Cooked those baby boys up on the grill and coated them with the homemade sauce. I gotta say, it was a big hit and the sauce was so easy. I don’t think I’ll be going back to the processed stuff again!
