This BBQ sauce is a recipe a friend's mother gave me when I told her I was making pulled pork sandwiches. I intended to use bottled sauce since it was my first time preparing pulled pork. My pulled pork turned out ABSOLUTELY amazing because of this recipe. I'll admit I added a few dabs of bottled sauce because I wasn't confident the consistency of this sauce would be ok. Regardless, this is good stuff!

I could see how this would be a good sauce over pulled pork once combined with the smokiness of the pork. I simmered this sauce for an hour and it was still very runny. It is a little too sweet/vinegary for my taste. Like Kelly says in the sauce description I feel like it would be much better with some premade barbeque sauce mixed in. Read More

I scaled way back on this recipe but made as written. I too felt it was too sweet. Mine wasn't too awful thin but just too sweet. If I were to make this again I would cut back on the honey and molasses and leave out the syrup entirely. This has potential and reminds me of a Kansas City style bbq sauce which are my favorite.
