HONEY BARBECUE SAUCE is my favorite combination of sweet and tangy and the best way to top your summer BBQ!
This month we’re doing a lot of traveling and camping! I’m so LOVING this summer. Right now my husband can’t do any lifting so I’m getting my workout in and I’m having a great time. I do miss being able to ask him to take out the trash and our kids aren’t quite old enough to be able to get the big kitchen bag out of the trash can so that’s on me. He only gets a few weeks “vacation” from trash duty though, so I’ll get by. 😉 If you have to be down and recovering I think the beach and lake is where I’d like to do it so it’s not too bad for him. With all the camping we’re doing I’ve been planning and making meals that we can take with us so that I don’t miss all the fun. I love scrolling through our round up of 50 Camping Recipes for inspiration! Of course we have to have BBQ when we’re camping, right!!! I love hanging out and cooking over the fire. Sometimes when you’ve been out exploring all day, though you want something fast! I made up a big pork roast that I’ll share with you all in a few days too. That way I can pop the shredded pork in a pot with some of this amazing Honey Barbecue Sauce, heat it up and viola! We have the best BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches ever!
It is so easy to make up barbecue sauce that I always question why I ever buy it once I’ve made a batch. We really like sweet style barbecue sauces in my house, like the Sweet and Tangy Barbecue Sauce I made last year. My youngest won’t have any if he thinks it’s the least bit spicy. If you’re not fighting that, and like a bit of heat in your sauce, I would absolutely add in some cayenne pepper to taste. This recipe would work great for Honey BBQ Chicken Wings or any other barbecue dish you’re making this summer!!!
