What Can I Do with Leftover BBQ Sauce?

Q: This week I made delicious pulled pork in my slow cooker with BBQ sauce. After gobbling up all the meat, I have about 2 cups of the incredible sauce leftover and don't want it to go to waste. Do you have any ideas about how long it will last in the fridge and some good ideas for using it?

Editor: Technically, leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up to 7 days, but my guess is that a cooked condiment like BBQ sauce will last a little longer. You could also freeze it for up to three months.

As for using it, I'd pour that sauce on everything! Mac n' cheese, pizza (instead of tomato sauce), roasted vegetables — you name it!

Readers, what are your ideas?
