Sauce Like a Boss: Dipping sauces for Smoked Sausages

There’s nothing like a plate of freshly smoked sausages hot off the grill to get your appetite up and running! But what do you do with a plate of sausages? Well, if you’re like me you grab one and eat it; but if you’re looking for a more civilized (pinkies up) approach, you’d cut them into bite-sized pieces and serve them with some dipping sauces. If mustard is your only go-to for a dipping sauce, I implore you to read on for gastronomic glory. And by that, I mean you’ll find some easy recipes for homemade dipping sauces that will have you fighting to lick the plate!
