Barbecue Sauce is a tomato or ketchup based sauce used on meats. Kansas City-style barbecue sauce is the most common version used in the United States. It is tomato- or ketchup- based with sweet, sour and smoky elements. Barbecue sauce can be added to the meat before, during or after cooking. This version contains quite a bit of sugar, so it should be added near the end or after cooking the meat to avoid burning the sauce.
