Kansas City Barbeque Sauce recipe

This Kansas City barbeque sauce recipe includes strong brewed coffee that not only adds extra body to this versatile recipe but also a subtle, smoky background flavor.

This particular recipe is one of the first we put on the website and is the mate to our Kansas City BBQ Ribs recipe.

It's really one of the most all-purpose BBQ sauces I've used and I continue to use it regularly on chicken and burgers along with ribs with great results.

I occasionally make a double batch just to save time for upcoming grilling sessions and it stores really well in the refrigerator for weeks.

It's important to remember that any sauce is intended to complement the food it's served with, not overpower the flavors of the food.
