What barbecue sauce do you recommend?


Well I always say you can’t go wrong with Sweet Baby Ray’s. I like the original version, a classic tomato-based sauce that blends beautifully with grape jam.

Do you consider it an appetizer or a main dish?

Either! You can serve them as a party appetizer to eat with toothpicks, or serve them over rice with a sprinkle of green onions for a family dinner. Complete the meal with a simple steamed vegetable dish, or go for something fancier like my Roasted Bacon Green Bean Casserole.
