TIPS AND TRICKS FOR VEGAN BBQ SAUCE
- I like my vegan bbq sauce to be a little sweet, but you can always add more or different sweeteners. Some people love using dates!

- If you need a hot vegan bbq sauce version, make a batch with a little hot sauce, cayenne pepper, or chili powder until it's the perfect spice level for you.
