The days are getting longer which means that barbecue season is upon us! Each year grill-masters around the country are making their mark on barbecue sauces, and while we are more often tea masters, we thought we'd share a new favorite recipe of ours! No smoker? No Problem! We used a Russian Country to infuse a smoky flavor into the meat and brought a nice sweet twist to a traditional BBQ sauce with our Apricot Tea. Test it out this Independence Day!
