Peach BBQ Sauce Version 2.0

I do love a fresh peach BBQ sauce. Nothing screams winter is over like fresh peaches being available in our local grocery store. I’ve made a great peach-based BBQ sauce before, but this time I was looking for something a bit different Something with a smoky flavor and a little sweetness.

My original sauce was more like a traditional Kansas City sauce. This version 2.0 sauce one brings a little kick to any grilled meat, like the split chicken breasts I made recently on my Char-Broil Big Easy.

Peach BBQ Sauce

As with any BBQ sauce, don’t apply it until your food is basically done grilling. Any sooner and the molasses and peach nectar may start to burn. Just put it on and let the food grill a bit longer until the sauce has set. Then enjoy! And if you prefer the flavor of apricot over peach, try out my apricot BBQ sauce.

This sauce is also great on my sweet-and-sour meatball skewers.

Peach BBQ Sauce

I was wandering around the produce section at the grocery store when I came across a really nice basket of fresh-picked ripe peaches. I knew exactly what I was going to make with them. Peach BBQ sauce, the perfect sauce for a rack of St. Louis-style smoked ribs. Although I’d be partial to using this tasty sauce on anything, it really complements anything pork the best.

Peach BBQ Sauce

This sauce isn’t too ‘peachy’. You can taste the fresh peaches, sure, but they don’t over-power the sauce. The peaches add a nice sweetness too.
