I am passionate about good barbecue. I have friends that invite me over every time they have barbecue in the summer. We have ribs, chicken, pork, and beef. The husband experiments with homemade barbecue sauces. I particularly like this one. I hope you do too.

Add my tarragon cole slaw or exceptional four bean salad on the side and you will have a have perfect barbecue meal.

      This combination sounds and looks good! I have a few bbq summer parties coming up so I'll definitely have to try this out. I'll have to try it out at the firehouse too! Thanks for the recipe!
