    Did you know that the origin of BBQ sauce could potentially be from when the first American colonies started to come together in the 17th century? Amazing right, I had no idea!

    They say that there are two states, North and South Carolina, that the source of two original sauces can be traced back for most of the BBQ sauces that you will find in America today.

    Now most states have their own versions of BBQ sauce that vary in different tastes.

    Even going from northern and southern states in America, you will find a different style of sauces. In the north they use a tomato base, and in the south you’ll find that they use mustard or vinegar. 

    All around the world you will find different variations of flavor! It’s what makes each countries food unique.

    Questions you might have about how to make your own BBQ Sauce:

    Can I freeze BBQ sauce? You sure can! In fact, I usually make a double or triple batch just so I can freeze some of it.

    Can I make BBQ ahead of time? Yes! By all means, make it in advance and let is sit so the flavors marry.

    How long is BBQ sauce good for in the refrigerator? Since this sauce isn’t full of additives and preservatives, it will only last about 1 week in the fridge.

    What if I want smooth BBQ sauce? I like the bits of onion, but if you prefer a silky smooth sauce, use an immersion blender to smooth it out or run it through a sieve to get all the little bits out.

    Tools for making this Homemade BBQ Sauce:

    Dutch Oven– every kitchen should have one! They are heavy. They are expensive. They are worth it! 

    Wood cutting board – wood won’t dull your knives like plastic and if treated properly, has natural antimicrobial properties.

    Good knife – Global is my favorite! They are worth the price, I promise. I am kind of obsessed with them and store them tucked away so no one else can use them. Including hubby. Hands off my good stuff!

    Fine Mesh Sieve– The perfect way to strain liquids with very small bits and pieces.

    Immersion Blender– If you want super smooth BBQ sauce, use this immersion blender, sometimes known as a stick blender, right in the sauce!
