Just in time for grilling season, we wanted to bring you a recipe for homemade BBQ sauce that is simple, delicious, and isn’t full of high fructose corn syrup like many of the store-bought varieties.

BBQ sauce may be a personal taste, but in this case we’re going with a Kansas City style that is thick, smoky and tangy.

For extra authenticity, we love serving it out of a mason jar.
