The Best BBQ Marinade

I find that people are always giving the British summertime a bad name – but I have so many amazing memories from home in the summer! We would have BBQ’s almost every weekend during the holidays (thankfully both my parents were teachers and therefore we got a full 6 weeks off as a family each year!) Anyway … this sauce tastes like HOME to  me. Its nothing like a typical American BBQ sauce (but what is typical? As each state has its own delicious version!!).

 I hope you try this as a marinade or as a basting sauce for your next BBQ for a slightly different experience!
