Homemade BBQ Sauce

Pin It

Happy Labor Day! Talk about good ol' southern BBQ sauce! I knew the Neely's recipe wouldn't disappoint. I left out the white sugar since I'm trying to not eat as much of that addicting substance, but Chris and I both thought it was great without it! The sauce was actually a tad bit spicy, which I like, so I'm sure the extra sugar would mellow out the flavor if you prefer it that way.

We grilled chicken and then brushed the BBQ sauce over top of each breast about 5 minutes before they were done. We found that this way works better than marinating the breasts in BBQ sauce prior to grilling because then the sauce will burn after being over the flames for so long. This way is a no-fail method! Enjoy!

Spread it on grilled chicken or whatever you prefer!
