I’ve found that most store-bought BBQ sauces include high fructose corn syrup. Since I try to limit our consumption of HFCS, I prefer to make my own BBQ sauce. I found this recipe years ago on the back of a molasses jar, although, I’ve altered it slightly.
This sauce tasty, super easy, and the ingredients are most likely in your kitchen. And since I only buy ketchup that doesn’t include HFCS, this sauce in HFCS-free.
