The weather is turning warm finally. Will be in the 60s this weekend and the perfect time to cook out on the grill or make a fun smoked dish for dinner. This easy homemade hickory barbecue sauce is so easy anyone can make it. We used this easy homemade hickory barbecue sauce to make our pulled chicken sandwiches when we had to use up some chicken that was in the freezer and it was getting close to time to use or toss. The kids loved it and were found munching the leftovers out of the refrigerator.
