Triple Play: Barbecue Sauces

I’m in BBQ withdraw.

It’s summer! Every weekend is a rush to see how many barbecues we can fit in between school and work not to mention a little personal and much needed r&r. And yet, (knowing full well that I had not one but two family events the next day) 3 hours into an all barbecue marathon of Diners Drive Ins and Dives I found myself in full blown barbecue withdraw! I’m talking salivating, ready to trash the swordfish thawing in the fridge and slathering whatever protein I could find in any barbecue sauce and getting down and dirty.

If you were wondering if it was possible for this to happen as you sigh over another platter frilled with ribs and burgers, know that in a few short months we will be back to frigid temperatures and locked inside like not so well equipped Eskimos craving a hit from the charcoal fairy. She’s not coming though… So yes, it is possible to go into a full on, drool inducing, carnivorous barbecue withdraw attack in 101 degree dog days of summer. Or I’m an addict and really need to seek out some kind of help. Either way…

So I did what and good little addicted does the moment I got back in my kitchen.


Now that I’m stocked up for a bit – wait to see what I slather it on ;)





  1. Can’t wait to try these recipes, we never buy store bought sauces, my DH usually just starts mixing. We have some hits and misses that way! I LOVE those jars, where did you get them? I need some!
