Carolina Mustard and Thick Kansas City BBQ Sauce

Summer time means BBQ! Time to make some BBQ sauce. Don't get me wrong, nothing wrong with a little A1 sauce. But there is something about homemade BBQ sauce. Can't get any fresher than that. Both of these sauces are seasoned very well and have the distinct regional flavors. I am not a huge mustard fan, but I do enjoy a good mustard sauce. It is perfect on smoked chicken or pulled pork. The Kansas city is tomato based with a slight sweet taste. If you want a little heat, add a little hot sauce or chipotle powder.

Kansas City BBQ Sauce

3. Adjust the heat and salt levels with the cayenne right before you plan to use this sauce.
