Barbecue Italian Sausages
The tangy barbecue sauce found here is fast, flavorful and extremely versatile. It's fantastic on sausages, but don't stop there; give it a try on ribs or with pulled pork.

This was a tasty recipe and easy to make. It's a nice alternative to regular sausage and peppers. This is a recipe I would use again.
