Lemon-Pepper BBQ Sauce



This recipe takes into account the popular Lemon-Pepper flavoring.  There’s plenty of other spices as well to give it a very robust taste.  Since this recipe does include tomato sauce, it is a true BBQ sauce as several of the other sauces listed would be considered more of a lemon based marinade vs. a true barbecue sauce.  As usual, this is great for chicken.  Most lemon based sauces are.
