Chef Tim’s BBQ Sauces: Basic brings out the best

When it comes to barbecue sauces, there are three types that you’d find on my dishes. You could call them basic – but they always seem to bring out the best of what I’ve got cooking on the grill.
My three favorites start with a basic ingredient — tomato, vinegar or mustard. While I always give you the ingredients, sauces are made to be your own! So feel free to experiment with my recipe. Once you are satisfied with the basic sauce recipe, by all means, alter it to your liking.
Please note: These sauces contain a lot of tomato or sugar. That means they are not good for use during the cooking stage of barbecuing as they burn too easily. I suggest these are best used as a marinade or just to finish off the meat before taking it off the grill.
Here they are:
Tomato-based BBQ Sauce
Vinegar-based BBQ Sauce
Mustard-Based BBQ Sauce (and my all-time favorite!)
