1 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons barbecue sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. In a bowl, combine all the ingredients and whisk until well combined.
2. Taste and adjust the seasoning as desired.
3. Transfer the sauce to a jar or container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to meld together.
