Delicious homemade anti-inflammatory barbecue sauce recipe to brighten up your holiday

Memorial Day is a day to remember those who have died serving our country, but it is also a day that marks the beginning of summer and the vacation season. School is out, people flock outdoors, and cooking on the grill never sounded better.

Memphis and Kansas City are known for their barbecue.  But, St. Louis is also known for barbecue and some St. Louis favorites in the summer are baby back ribs and pork steaks on the grill.  What if it’s a rainy day or you’re craving ribs in the winter?  Try this recipe for Slow-Cooked Ribs and enjoy the meat literally falling apart!

Don’t forget to use my favorite homemade anti-inflammatory barbecue sauce recipe. I have made it so many times that I don’t always follow a recipe. Even with a little variation, it always turns out delicious. Many people like the convenience of prepackaged sauces; however, they are not only inferior in taste, but are also full of a wide variety of chemicals, additives, preservatives, and excess sugar and salt. Don’t be intimidated. Make your own, and taste the difference.
