There's just one problem with barbecuing…
…it can get old fast. Burgers again? Grilled chicken again?
Although some of us rarely tire of grilling, there are sometimes people in the family that beg for more variety. 😉
I heard this refrain in our family recently, so my husband suggested we step things up with sauces.
Because… grilled meats dressed up with a yummy sauce?
All of a sudden, you're in new territory. It's as if you created a whole new dish, yet all you did was brush on a new sauce at the end of the grilling time. I love easy fixes like this!
This honey BBQ sauce is a sauce I created recently for my husband. He's thrilled with it — and so is the whole family. 🙂
By the way, we cook outside nearly all summer long. I'm not sure how that's going to pan out in our new home in Indiana when it gets hot and humid. But for now, we're enjoying another season of doing so. I collected my tips and recipes for using and creating an outdoor kitchen in our Cooking Outside eBook & Video Package or Cooking Outside eCourse.
Enjoy This Real Food Honey BBQ Sauce!
