Barbecue sauce, depending on the type, can be used in many ways. Its primary use is that of a condiment or a dip for finished barbecue products or any other food that you might want to add a barbecue taste to. It can also be used as a marinade or a baste. A lot of purists will scoff at the notion of bottled barbecue sauce and in some ways, we totally agree. But that doesn’t mean that all premade barbecue sauces are bad, it just means that you have to be more careful in choosing the right one.
