Smoky Maple Homemade BBQ Sauce

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 independents, not the multi-national corporate conglomerates that make 10 gazillion gallons at a time.

One taste of this sauce and you'll know immediately why I call this Smoky Maple and why homemade is usually better then store-bought.

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.

This is also the Signature BBQ Sauce used on our Great Canadian gourmet hamburger recipe.
