Sweet & Spicy Pineapple BBQ Sauce

Sweet & Spicy Pineapple BBQ Sauce by PamperedPaleoI LOVE THIS RECIPE! I hate sounding overly confident in my recipe-creating abilities, but omg I really did something good with this one. I set out to make a Caribbean Jerk BBQ sauce to top my Caribbean Jerk Burgers with, and quite honestly I was not so sure of my capability to do so and do it well. After searching and searching for recipes I could use, I resorted to the idea that it would take just as long to create my own recipe as it would to find one that would suit what I was looking for. The result was this, and I’ve never been so happy about nailing a recipe.
