About barbecue sauce
Barbecue sauce (also abbreviated BBQ sauce) is a liquid flavoring sauce or condiment ranging from watery to very-thick consistency. As the name implies, it was created as an accompaniment to barbecued foods. While it can be applied to any food, it usually tops the meat after cooking or during barbecuing, grilling, or baking. Traditionally, it has been a flavored sauce for pork or beef ribs and chicken.
It sometimes carries with it a smoky flavor. The ingredients vary, but some commonplace items are tomato paste, vinegar, spices, and sweeteners. These variations are often due to regional traditions and recipes.
There are all kinds of barbeque sauce, but you might want to consider those that are all natural without any preservatives. Those will give you the perfect, sweet, sour and spicy flavor without the nasty chemicals that some sauces have.
