WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - In summer, it’s all about the cookout.

Chef Chris Manning prepares two Southern barbecue sauces — one from each of the Carolinas — and bread whose key ingredient is yellow mustard.

They’re all perfect for a backyard barbecue.

You can use the sauces to mop onto meat or as marinades. The bread is good as it is and great toasted.

- 12 ounces beer

- 2 tablespoons baking powder

- 3 cups flour

- 1 tablespoon sugar

- 1 teaspoon salt

- 1/2 cup water

- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Mix dry and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Stir until just combined. Do not overmix.

Pour batter into greased 9″ by 5″ loaf pan. Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees and 5 to 10 minutes at 425.
