This home-cooked barbeque sauce is especially great on pork or venison. This recipe makes plenty so you'll always have some when you need it. Use this to baste meats only during the last 15 minutes of cooking. Overcooking will give the herbs and spices a bitter taste.

This was a pretty tasty Barbeque sauce. The bacon drippings cumin and Spanish Paprika really add a depth of flavor. I used it for dipping - not for cooking. The instructions say the flavor changes when cooked for too long so I went for the sauce more raw. I'd make this again. Read More

I think the bacon drippings are the key to this recipe. I did not have Spanish parika so I used smoked paprika instead...this sauce has a lot of depth and I loved the fresh ginger and soy sauce in this. I made pulled pork BBQ in my slow-cooker with this sauce! Unbelievable BBQ sauce recipe!!! Read More

Tangy peppery and a sweet. Tried it with a can of crushed tomato instead of ketchup as well and it was still awesome more smoky and less sweet tasting though. Read More

Pretty good recipe! Too much vinegar though. I doubled the recipe (minus more vinegar) to thin out the vinegar liked that better! Otherwise very nice with the ginger soy sauce and seasonings. I will use this sauce on short ribs on the weekend. Read More
