Not a bad barbeque sauce considering it's simplicity...ingredients I always have one hand. I too cut down on the onion soup mix a little and added some orange juice (didn't have pineapple like other reviewer!) There are better BBQ sauce recipes but this one is tops for simplicity! We put it on chicken wings for the kids one night as they can't stand the heat of other recipes! Read More

I LOVE this sweet sauce. I've been making it for about a year and have passed it onto several people. I only use about 1/2 the packet of onion soup mix and 1/2 of the worcestershire called for. I also add a tablespoon or two of pineapple juice (something my grandma always added to her bbq sauces). This sauce makes delicious ham bbq sandwiches. Just whip up the sauce and add some finely chipped ham. Read More

Not the best bbq sauce and that's being nice. We did a taste test BEFORE brushing our chicken with it thank goodness. Our chicken would have tasted like ketchup otherwise. Thankfully I had a bottle of bbq sauce in the fridge. This recipe lacks on flavor. Read More
