Homemade BBQ Sauce

This is another recipe from Hubby’s mom. She likes to make this BBQ sauce to give as gifts and often makes a jar for us when we visit. I figured it was about time to just ask for the recipe so we could make it ourselves. It comes together so quick and easy there’s no reason to buy premade BBQ sauce any more!
