That is such a great idea and I love the brush and the way it is attatched to the jar. My husband likes to grill. I may just make this.

Eieiei! YAY! I've been wanting to make Bar-be-que sauce and just checked out a boatload of books from the library about bar-be-que to get some sauce recipes!

We loooooooooooove bar-be-que, but my husband is V-E-R-Y picky about the sauce. He worked at a BBQ restaurant as a teen and got spoiled to it's sauce. It really WAS good.

Thanks for the recipe!
Blessings,
Julie
