Barbecue Sausage

Super yummy…super simple…super summery. That best sums up this dish. It’s versatile enough that it can be made on the grill, stovetop or in the oven.

I use a homemade barbecue sauce whenever I make anything with barbecue sauce. It is so easy to throw together and I always have the ingredients on hand. Plus, we all think it just tastes so much better than barbecue sauce in a bottle.
