RECIPE: BBQ Sauce for Chicken Wings, etc from THREE MOONS

Shelly, owner-operator & chef extraordinaire of the 72-foot charter yacht Three Moons, is sharing their favorite BBQ sauce recipe for the first time online!

This is extremely good timing as you probably are aware that this weekend is the Super Bowl, and it is estimated that Super Bowl watchers will consume 1.25 BILLION chicken wings which adds up to a whopping 100,000,000 pounds of wings for this weekend alone... Amazing!

What is the secret of this really great thick sauce?  Two words:  molasses & oranges.  Mmmmmm... and it's good on everything... chicken, shrimp, ribs, pork, burgers... you name it! Shelly says she'll probably put some of this savory barbecue sauce on their scrambled eggs on Super Bowl morning.
