Florida BBQ Sauce

Growing up in Texas, I got used to a certain type of BBQ. After I moved to Florida, I loved how lots of different citruses were being added to BBQ sauces. I played around for a long time before I hit on what I think is the most balanced yet citrus-dominant Florida BBQ sauce yet. —Christine Hair, Odessa, Florida
