Homemade Barbeque Sauce (Mild Memphis Style)
Barbeque sauces can enhance the flavors of meat and are simple and tasty. Many barbeque sauces do double duty, the sauce that is brushed on during grilling will caramelize and form a delicious protective crust during those last minutes of grilling, but many sauces are also condiments and part of the recipe should be reserved to brush on after grilling or to be used as a dipping sauce at the table.
The key to a good barbeque sauce is the balance of it's flavors. For every sour note, add a sweet one, for every hot flavor, add something mild.
This sauce is not hot but definitly not a boring sauce. A homemade sauce with great flavor created from a mustard and vinegar base. In Memphis, pork shoulder and pork ribs are king, when you say Memphis, you say pork. A nice finishing sauce for pork but also compliments beef, chicken and seafood as well.

Over high heat bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer the sauce uncovered, about 15 minutes, stirring occassionally.
