Making homemade BBQ sauce is easier than it seems. I’ll show you how to make BBQ sauce in only 30 minutes and in the simplest way possible!

You know how bacon makes everything better? I’m a believer that BBQ sauce does too and I love to try new flavor combinations using unsuspecting ingredients. Chipotle peppers, especially those in adobo sauce, have a signature smoky flavor that packs a lot of heat.
You can adjust the amount of chipotle peppers to your liking, but beware that even one will have a kick. Adding honey helps to even out the spice.
