    I tried this kind of white bbq sauce in a bottle, it was a store one time order.. of course after I find I love it .. couldn’t find it again! I’m SO HAPPY to have found your recipe, yes even better than bottled. I have to watch sodium closely.. this if far lower than other sauces. I’ll try mixing up the recipe for fun sometimes. Thank you
