Sassy Barbeque Sauce

I am originally from Kansas City, Missouri – pronounced Miz-zoor-E, not Miz-zoor-uh! As many of you know, KC is not only home to the 2015 World Series champions, the Royals, but the birthplace some of the best barbeque and jazz around. I like my barbeque sauce, a little spicy with a hint of sweetness. Make a batch of this sassy sauce and drizzle it on all things Que. Try it on pork, chicken, ribs, turkey, shrimp and tofu. If ya like, grab a straw and take a sip. I’m tellin’ ya….it’s that good!
