Sparkling Barbecue SauceSteven Raichlen
Barbecue sauces based on soft drinks turn up all across Planet Barbecue, and whether they owe their popularity to the sweet-sour flavor dynamic or simply to the convenience and whimsy of using a beverage to flavor the meat, I can’t say. What I can say is that you’ll find them throughout the Spanish-speaking world.
