BBQ Sauces: Spicy and Sweet

One of the best things of summer is barbecuing.  My husband and I usually BBQ all year long, but during the summer we really enjoy being outside by the pool and cooking some good food.  Today I made two BBQ sauces..one is spicy and the other one sweet and tangy.

I found this recipe in the Food Network Magazine, and I thought why not give it a try.
