Get some fries ready for dipping!
Barbecue sauce is my favorite condiment next to Maille’s old fashioned dijon mustard. Sure, it’s easier to buy a bottle of it at the store but you can control the flavours and ingredients going into the sauce when you make it yourself (as with anything homemade). I would often noticed syrups, artificial flavours, colorants and other unnecessary ingredients, so I had decided to make my own. I’ve been making my own bbq sauce for about 2 years now and it’s one of those things that takes time but is so worth it.
