If you grew up in the Midwest like I did, or maybe just in the States, it stands to reason you might be familiar with Grape Jelly Barbecue Sauce. It’s the base sauce for all those classic barbecue type meatballs that are served out of slow cookers at so many parties, potlucks, and get-togethers. They’re just about ubiquitous, and like many simple recipes are either loved or reviled.
I have a true confession. And don’t get too excited to hear some juicy tidbit. It’s just that I’ve never been a huge fan of chicken legs and/or drumsticks. It was these Instant Pot Barbecued Drumsticks that converted me. Done in the Instant Pot, this budget cut of chicken becomes absolutely luscious, beautifully rendered and moist. A short stint under the broiler with your favorite barbecue sauce crisps the skin and gives Instant Pot Barbecue Drumsticks lovely caramelization. If you’re not feeling the broiler, you can’t go wrong with tossing these on the grill to finish.
I’m kind of getting on a little apple kick here in late May. It’s because I posted the recipe out for my Cider Glazed Ribs so I just had to put out the recipe for this Apple Butter Barbecue Sauce to complement them. And to tell the truth, I have a slaw coming up with apples in it, too. That’s my Tangy Apple Cabbage Slaw.
I always think of Wings, Sports Bars, and Football together. Like they’re connected in my mind, and in my head, you can’t have any them without the other. But Wings are great anytime you want to have a sporty get together and with March Madness upon us (the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournaments if you’re not in the know) why not have your wings on the couch, in front of the TV? You can knock out some pretty great Instant Pot BBQ Wings at home, pretty darned fast!
I think until you taste Alabama White BBQ Sauce you might not “get” it. But once you do taste it, it’s one of those things that kinda haunts you. The same is true of this Alabama White BBQ Dipping Sauce, which is (you might have guessed this already, lol) based on the classic Alabama White Barbecue Sauce.
