Throughout the winter I sometimes feel like I'm just trudging through grilling to fulfill my standing recipe commitments. Sure, I don't mind grilling all year round, but the cold doesn't really inspire creativity as much as finding items that don't require me to sit outside for long periods of time. By the end of winter, I often wonder if I'm really "that into" grilling anymore, but as soon as the days start to grow longer and warmer, a renewed enthusiasm is born and I'm 100% back into game. With my love affair with the grill completely reignited, an onslaught of recipe ideas begins to flow. These tend to be so massive that I never get through everything I set out to accomplish by the time the cold starts to sink in once again.
Barbecue sauce is just one small category within the larger scope of grilling, but even within those confines, I have so many variations I'd like to try out that it can be daunting and I end up only doing a few each season. Last year I wanted to get away from the regional sauces I've focused on in the past and do something completely different. I got what I was looking for in this balsamic barbecue sauce.
