Watermelon BBQ Sauce

Watermelon

Watermelon

Now this is something you won’t find anywhere on your grocery shelf.  A Watermelon BBQ Sauce!  I didn’t research to find out where this came from like some of the other recipes I have posted.  My grandmother used to make watermelon jelly and she’s from the south in Tennessee so this might have been from that region in the south, I don’t know.

Peach BBQ Sauce

Peach BBQ Sauce on Chicken

I’m a huge fan of peaches and this Peach BBQ Sauce really hits the spot.  This Peach BBQ sauce reminds me of a peach salsa that also like to fix which actually might taste pretty good along side the BBQ chicken if you were to fix the salsa chunky.  I’ll have to upload that recipe and link to it in case any of you want to fix it along with his Sauce recipe.

Mango BBQ Sauce (dipping sauce/glaze)

Mangos

Mangos

If you like Mangos like I do, then you’ll LOVE this Mango BBQ sauce recipe.  I have to admit, this isn’t a traditional barbecue sauce since it does not have tomatoes or the other typical base BBQ sauce items.  Therefore, it’s really more of just Mango sauce or a Mango dipping sauce.  However, since Mangos are about my favorite exotic flavor, I couldn’t resist putting this recipe in here.
