Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce

So after looking at making my own sauces, I had a lot to consider:

Is it light but robust?

Is it tasty with a hint of spice?

What can I make in less than 20 minutes?

What the h^&l am I going to do with these extra Molasses?

That’s when I came on this recipe from Skinnytaste. This has flavor in spades, just the right amount of kick, and light on the midsection. People have thought this was storebought…
