Mamas Barbecue Sauce Recipe @pinch

This is a basic and delicious BBQ sauce. It leaves room to adjust the recipe to suit your taste buds. Sweet, savory, and a little tangy, we adored it the way it was written using the bigger measurements for vinegar. If you want it tangier, add more vinegar and pepper for a kick. Homemade barbecue sauce is very easy to make and this will be popular at your next BBQ. My mother always used this recipe for her ribs and chicken. It was always wonderful and always got rave reviews. I never remember a time she made bar haveb haveque ribs and chicken that she used bottled sauce. She always made her own sauce and we loved it!
