Grape Jelly Barbecue Sauce

Grape Jelly Barbecue Sauce, Updated

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.

Two things I love. I love tinkering in the kitchen and I love to use that tinkering to get me a little sumpin’ sumpin’ now and then that might not normally fit into my budget.
