Summer is all about Grilling, well actually in our house grilling is an all season event lol. Many people focus of BBQ only during warm weather and that is OK, sadly they have no idea what they are missing. There is something about a grilled steak or burger in mid January that helps the winter doldrums. But grilling is perfected any time of year only if you have the perfect Hot’n Saucy BBQ Sauce


My secret ingredient is fresh brewed coffee, making the sauce a tasty additin to any dish. Coffee is not just for drinking it is also for sauce and burgers.
