Dressed up Bottled Barbecue Sauce

Dressed up Bottled Barbecue Sauce

I have a favorite homemade barbecue sauce that I like to use for chicken and ribs and a favorite bottled sauce I like to buy - original Sweet Baby Ray's is still my favorite right off the shelf sauce. But... it is a bit more costly than the cheaper versions, which can almost always be found on sale somewhere. You know the ones that I'm talking about.

They're decent sauces and not bad on their own at all, but you can certainly dress them up and bump them up quite a few levels too, to make them your own. Nobody has to know but you! Here's how.

Great with my Grilled Backyard Barbecued Chicken y'all!

  1. We are all about this same exact thing! Take bottled bbq sauce and make it better. It's such an easy way to make somethign yours.

  2. I call it Rigging It. :) I also have tried different additives. Try these too:
    Orange (cut in half and Squeezed)
    maple syrup
    chipolte pepper

    I do not use all these at the same time but I mix it up and keep people guessing about my sauce.
