Finger lickin good barbecue sauce for all our summer grilling foods!
This sauce is a little sweet with a pinch of heat. Delicious on chicken or any of your favorite grilled meats.
I love summer barbecues. The open fire with Alan prepping the grill while drinking a beer, it’s my favorite way to spend our summer evenings.
I especially like that Alan enjoys being the cook when we barbecue. It’s his domaine and through trial and error he has become quite the grill master!
Thank goodness, because open flame cooking is not my territory. In fact, I don’t think I have ever grilled anything, ever!
I do have a couple of favorite store bought barbecue sauces that I go to when I want to add some super quick and easy flavor when grilling.
While poking through the refrigerator looking to see what I had on hand, I noticed that the first ingredient on one of my favorite sauces is high fructose corn syrup.
No wonder the meat quickly chars! The heat has to sizzle through the sugar before getting to the meat!
Homemade is best, always! This finger lickin good sauce recipe was printed in our Sunday paper, the USA Weekend, and it’s delicious just as they promised.
With only three tablespoons of molasses, it’s low in sugar. Easy to make too.
Molasses and mango adds the sweetness you might be used to in your barbecue sauces, and jalapeño peppers adds a little spicy kick. Nice combination.
You can make the sauce up to three days in advance.
Try the sauce on pork chops, grilled shrimp skewers or drizzle it over grilled vegetables. The recipe makes about 3 cups.
