I like carrots, but to be honest I can only eat so many raw carrots before I’m tired of them. In the winter I seem to like all my foods warm (my way of heating up I guess), so I decided cooked carrots would be a nice way to change it up. I was originally thinking BBQ sauce, but since I didn’t have any at the time and was not up for a drive to the store, I made my own. This one turned out pretty well. I wouldn't put it on my pulled pork necessarily, but it's great with the carrots. It’s a little spicy, because I like my foods spicy. If you're thinking "great, another spicy dish I don't like" then never fear - It's easy to change out the hot spices for something milder/sweeter. Enjoy the BBQ Carrots!
