Kansas City Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Make Your Own Barbecue Sauce

Every Summer I like to experiment with different homemade barbecue sauces. While I've made sauces that require hours to simmer and others that call for finely minced vegetables, I've never come across a barbecue sauce as easy and delicious as this one. The recipe says it's a Kansas City barbecue sauce, but being as I'm a California girl, I really know nothing about the regional differences of barbecue sauces (if you do, please share with me below!). What I do know is this sauce is really easy to make and absolutely scrumptious slathered on ribs and chicken. There's no chopping or heating involved, all you have to do is measure a bunch of spices into a bowl, stir in the liquids, and you've got homemade barbecue sauce. I love the addition of curry powder, it provides a subtle exotic-ness to the sauce. Want to learn how it's prepared? Just keep reading.
