Sweet and smokey barbecue sauce served up in a glass container surrounded by strawberries.

Homemade barbecue sauce is easy to make and the possibilities are endless. This particular recipe utilizes my favorite spring fruit: strawberries. Use this sauce anywhere you’d normally use barbecue sauce. Brush it on some chicken and throw it on the grill, or take it up a notch and make some homemade ribs. It doesn’t get any easier than my Secret to Crockpot Ribs. However you decide to use it, get ready to lick your fingers with BBQ goodness.

Shredded some baked chicken andput the sauce and some cheese on it, made for my sister and I for lunch, and we loved it. She wants me to make it again.

Why have I never thought to make a sweet fruity bbq sauce like this?! I bet its so good on chicken or ribs!
