Many home grill cooks are not willing to share some of their recipes. Lucky for you I am not one of them

Here I share my BBQ sauce recipe for pulled pork. I would not claim that it is award-winning but I think it could be after all the compliments I received.

Not only taste it good but it is also easy to make. When you have all ingredients ready it should take no longer than 20 minutes to make.

It can be kept in the refrigerator for a long time. But my experience is that it does not last that long because you can also use it for other pork recipes.

As you can read this homemade BBQ sauce for pulled pork is very easy to make in about 20 minutes and all ingredients are easy to find in your local grocery store.

My family and friends many times asked me if they could take some of the sauce home after eating my pulled pork.

I have used this sauce also on pork chops and that tasted also good.

TIP: While slowly boiling this sauce the vinegar smell can be a little overwhelming. Don’t worry it will be gone fast.
