The Art of Seasoning Barbecue

Not too much sweet, with the right amount of heat. Here's a recipe for a great BBQ sauce that has stood the test of time!

From all the way back in 1966, Tabasco gives us this great recipe for spicy barbecue sauce.

Now I know summer is almost done, but there is still plenty of time to fire up that grill. And what barbecue would be complete without sauce? Do not let the recipe fool you. This sauce can be used on anything. Not just ribs, chicken, and burgers. Another nice thing about this recipe; even though it has Tabasco in it, it is not overly spicy. There is just the right amount of heat, and plenty of sweet.

You may have also noticed that this is the first recipe that we have added that is NOT a dessert. Now, we love sweets as much as the next person (and have many more that we are going to add), but we felt a need to mix things up some. So do not fret…there will be plenty more sweet treats gracing our pages.
