Smoky Maple Homemade BBQ Sauce recipe

One of the nicest things about a homemade BBQ Sauce recipe is that it doesn't taste like most of the generic store-bought brands.

Don't get me wrong, there's some fantastic barbecue sauces on the shelves but their mostly from small independants, not the multi-corporation conglomerates that make 10 gazillion gallons at a time.

One taste of this barbeque sauce and you'll know immediately why I call this Smoky Maple and why homemade is usually better then store-bought. how to make homemade bbq sauce
Combine the sweet rich flavors of pure Maple Syrup with the distinctive taste and smell of good down home smoky BBQ and you've got a winner.

You'll smile too once you make this homemade BBQ sauce recipe your own.
