3 Recipes to Try with Chad’s Sauces
If there’s one thing we know to be true, it’s that there’s no such thing as good BBQ without an equally good sauce. Some would even argue that it’s the best part, but that’s still left to be debated. The perfect sauce isn’t too sweet, too tangy, too hot, or too smoky. It’s not overly thick or thin, but just right. You’ll know it when you taste it. So, whatever juicy BBQ you choose to indulge in, don’t skimp on the good stuff. And, by ‘good stuff’ we mean Chad’s sauces. This fall, get cookin’ and try these delicious recipes made with Chad’s homemade sauces.
