Your New Secret BBQ Sauce Recipe?

What makes BBQ ribs great? It's the BBQ sauce! It's no wonder many cooks swear by their secret BBQ Sauce Recipe, only sharing their guarded recipe with a select few.

From cookouts , taste festivals, or even backyard grilling the goal is always to have the best tasting barbeque sauce that your hungry guest and neighbors will praise you for. Now pair that up with tender juicy meat that falls off the bone, you are the talk of the town!

By the way, did you know there was a difference between barbecuing and grilling? Yeah there is a difference! Barbecuing is a slower longer process, usually cooking at about 200-250 degrees. Grilling on the other hand is a faster process, cooking at about 500-700 degrees. Barbecuing is said to be the way to go if your looking for the best tasting and juicest meat. I have included 2 of my favorite videos for barbequing nice and tender ribs, check them out below.
