    • When serving dipping sauces, place a single serving of sauce in a small bowl, providing one for each person.
    • Never dip cooked meat into a bowl of sauce.
    • Use fresh spices. You won't get the best barbeque sauce using stale spices. Buy spices in small quantities and try to use them up in 6-8 months. Store spices in air tight containers, in a cool dry place.
    • Avoid plain aluminium and cast iron sauce pans. These materials tend to react adversely with lemon juice, vinegar, tomatoes and other acidic flavorings.
