Tom Racer's Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce


This week everyone is gearing up for our nations Independence Day Celebrations. 
 Around here that means one thing...GRILLING, and LOTS of it! 
That's right, I have a feeling more grills will be fired up Friday than on any other day this summer!  So here on The Kitchen Wife I am going to be talking about all things BBQ and to get things started, you can't have anything BBQ if you don't have a good sauce.  My dad, Tom Racer, is FAMOUS in our area for his BBQ sauce.  I can't tell you the times people have come to him asking if he will make his BBQ meatballs for their various events.  Therefore, if we are going to be BBQing this week, I have to share this recipe with you!  YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE IT!
 
Let's get started!
