Guava BBQ Sauce

This recipe was created for our interview we did with country music artist J. R. Moore. He is out of Memphis, so we had to do something with BBQ. I decided to spin it a little with some Florida flare. This sauce is sweet, savory and with just enough heat.  It’s pretty much good on everything. However, we love them with some smoked wings. Try this sauce at your next get together. It will turn you into a BBQ hero. Check out our interview with J. R. Moore by clicking here.
