I have a secret dream. One that I have never told anyone…EVER! I dream of winning a BBQ sauce competition.
Yes, for reals. I have a recurring dream (or maybe its a nightmare) that I win a BBQ sauce competition at the Houston Rodeo. I think after having that dream for so long, I now have a desire to make BBQ sauce. I know it sounds weird…and let’s be honest I am a little different, but any chance I get to make my own BBQ sauce I jump on it.
I love both fancy and more simple, and I still have several I want to make but this latest version is a little of both.
a little sweet….& a little spicy
The story of me…I am a little sweet with a little spice mixed in when needed. In my opinion this is a must have balance in my BBQ sauce and life. So what makes this sauce so special? There is a perfect combo of sweet from molasses & brown sugar then a little spice thrown in with Sriracha and some chili powder.
This combo works perfectly with all your favorite BBQ meats such as chicken, pork chops or ribs. It would also be great on grilled salmon…ooohhhh that sounds so good. Hope The Hubby wants to grill tonight. Now don’t get nervous it is not too spicy, and you can adjust the heat with how much Sriracha you add in to don’t add in.
I also love this sauce because it is all HOMEMADE!! Don’t get me wrong I love some bottled sauces out there, but it is nice to know everything that is in a sauce. It is also super nice to be able to make it perfect for the family…I as a matter of fact made 2 batches, one more spicy than the other for the lovers of both.
