You know I am a big fan of cooking from scratch as much as I can. Have bought a top reviewed barbecue sauce recently and although it tasted great, I was surprised with the amount of sugar that was packed in it.

Don’t know why I am so surprised, everything is loaded with sugar these days. Craving some good bourbon barbecue sauce without the unnecessary load of sugar, have decided to try and make my own homemade barbecue sauce.
