Grilling out for the 4th of July

I'm a little late getting this posted, but it's a long weekend and not everyone will be grilling out today. My husband has to work today, so we won't be grilling out until Sunday. The recipe I have for you today is an all purpose barbecue sauce. I know with all the different bottled sauces out there that it is so easy to pop the top on one of those, but this homemade sauce is just the best and it is so quick and easy to make. This is a hand-me-down recipe that my mother used for as long as I can remember. She and I have used it on chicken, hamburger, pork, and just about anything you can barbecue. Because it does have so much sugar in it, you do have to watch it closely on the grill to keep it from burning. It is also great to use in the slow cooker. I'm fixing a barbecue pork loin in our slow cooker for supper tonight and I will be using this sauce.

The use on anything Barbecue Sauce

1/2 C. sugar
1/2 C. catsup
1/2 C. lemon juice
1/4 C. Worcestershire sauce
Garlic Powder

Layer all ingredients in order listed above in a large measuring cup. Sprinkle garlic powder on top and mix well. Apply to meat just before it is done.

I hope everyone has a great 4th of July and don't forget our troops that are serving our country.

We actually went to Hardees for dinner on the 4th, instead of cooking on the grill. I know; UnAmerican. But the kids scattered during the day; D watched the History Channel; I ended up writing for several hours and neglected to lay anything out for dinner!

I cooked my little heart out last night to make up for it:)

That BBQ sauce recipe looks simple and made with ingredients I already have on hand. Thanks for posting it. I found your blog tonight via the foodie blog roll.
