What would summer be without classic BBQ rib sauce? It wouldn’t be much, in my opinion. For my family, summer is about spending time together, having fun outdoors, and eating delicious (and hopefully at least some of the time healthy) food which of course includes classic BBQ rib sauce.
Unfortunately, in my family, it’s tough to please everyone. I for one like a sweet BBQ sauce with just a hint of spice, my husband wants a classic BBQ rib sauce that will scorch your mouth and reduce your tongue to a cinder, and little man, well, you never know what he will and will not eat. However, this classic BBQ rib sauce, while more my style than the hubby’s, is liked by all.
