Slow Cooker BBQ Sauce
You Will Never Want Bottled BBQ Sauce Again!
Who doesn't love some finger licking good barbeque sauce? The right sauce will complement the meats flavor while giving it an extra kick of flavor. The month of May celebrates the delicious flavor of BBQ. I have been canning and making my own jams, ketchup's and sauces for years. All of my recipes have been handed down to me from both of my grandmothers and my mom. I still have her recipe cards where she has changed or crossed out an ingredient or measurement making the recipes her own. There are so many new ingredients and spices that have become popular in recent years and I like to add these to their recipes. This Slow Cooker BBQ Sauce uses fiery adobe peppers which gives a delicious smoky taste to the sauce.

Popular BBQ Sauces From Different Regions
I absolutely LOVE BBQ. Our family cooks out at least 3 times a week. We also go to BBQ festivals and competitions every chance we get. There are many different varieties of BBQ sauce from different regions around America. After living in several areas of the country I have came to really like Carolina Gold, Tennessee Whiskey and Kansas City Style BBQ sauces and they are all delicious. If I had to choose my all-time favorite BBQ sauce it would be a smoky sweet tomato vinegar style sauce.

Carolina Gold BBQ Sauce
While I was living in Beaufort, South Carolina I tried Carolina Gold bbq sauce on some ribs that a friend had made. I really don't like mustard that much so I was reluctant to try them. But boy were they good. I immediately set out to make my own version of this delicious gold sauce and this is what I have came up with.
