Sweet ‘N Chunky Peach Pecan BBQ Sauce

Sweet 'N Chunky Peach Pecan BBQ Sauce

I love me some Q.

I’ll admit it.

From Texas to Memphis to KC, I could just Q myself across the country.

And I don’t limit my BBQ infatuation to big slabs of ribs, brisket and shoulder either.

Slather up some salmon or scallops, maybe some green beans or a chicken salad, and I am a happy camper.

And while it’s not unusual for me to simmer a huge pot of from-scratch sauce, made with a couple dozen or more ingredients, I think it’s fun every once in a while to “jazz up” a good bottled sauce.

Now naysayers of sweet sauces, don’t hate!  Just make sure you start with a heat-filled, kick butt sauce to balance out the fruity/maple-y additions.  You’ll be good to go!
