Hell’s Backbone Grill in Southern Utah is one of our favorite restaurants. It’s an experience that will create a great memory.
Use this sauce in the last 5 to 10 minutes of grilling meats; it’s amazing with pork or chicken.
This is easy and very tasty. Make for a great neighborhood Christmas gift. Just saying!
