Make this easy 10 minute homemade BBQ sauce that is rich in smokey and spicy flavors for all your summer’s grilling needs.
Is April too early to be thinking barbecue?
Okay, probably, but a few sunny days in Oregon and I’m pretty much convinced it’s summertime. The days are getting longer, the backyard desperately needs mowing, and the 2017 baseball season is underway. I mean, it’s basically time to pull out the barbecue and get grilling, right?
Okay, I’ve gotta be honest.
I don’t even have a grill and I rarely barbecue. Which, in case you’re wondering is not because I’m vegan; vegans grill, people! But grilling, despite loving the flavors of a smokey and slightly charred tempeh steak, is not a hobby I will likely be picking up anytime soon. For one thing, I’m a bit intimidated by the grill. Like, I’m not even sure how to turn one on. But, then again, I did just disassemble my garbage disposal to fix a jammed motor, which is impressive considering two years ago I didn’t even know how to turn off a water valve. So perhaps I shouldn’t give up hope on the grill just yet. That’s not the only reason I don’t grill, however. I’m fairly minimal when it comes to stuff – seriously, you should see my house – and a grill, to me, is just more stuff. Besides that, I cook for myself and 2 picky toddlers. That means most days I just eat a variation of this tofu bowl for dinner – at best.
But all that to say, just because I don’t grill doesn’t mean I don’t LOVE to smoother things in smokey, rich homemade BBQ sauce and that, my friends, is something you can do all year around!
Even in April.
This is my go-to homemade BBQ sauce recipe because it’s super easy to make; it can be made in under 10 minutes with minimal mess. Better yet, this recipe begs to be seasoned just to your liking. A BBQ sauce customized just to you!
A smokey, spicy, full bodied homemade BBQ sauce for any occasion! Believe me when I say, you’ll never have to buy store bought BBQ again.
So let’s start this summer party early with a little BBQ sauce and a lot of cheer! And come back next week when I share with you my favorite ways to use this recipe.
Lots of love and sunshine to you!
