BBQ Sauce - Bring Out the Sweetness Baby!

BBQ sauce is generally a basic mixture of tomatoes, sugar and vinegar. Tomatoes used can be in various forms such as tomato sauce, paste, puree and even ketchup. Sugar adds sweetness to the barbecue sauce and can either be corn syrup, honey or molasses. The addition of vinegar, on the other hand, lends a sour flavor to the bbq sauce and can be in the form of beer, white or flavored vinegar, wine or citrus juices. In general, bbq sauces can be used throughout the barbecue process from preparation to cooking. However, be careful with sugar based bbq sauces when cooking as they can easily burn while cooking and ruin the flavor of the meat.

The combination of these three ingredients makes up the basic recipe of almost all bbq sauces. However, variations based on tastes and personal preferences often lend a hand in the creation of a unique bbq sauce. On the whole, most people will have their own special barbecue sauce although there are still many who search for their ideal barbecue sauce in stores.
