This barbeque sauce is simple, but adds a great sweet-mild hot flavor for all meat.

I was making ribs and realized I didn't have any BBQ sauce. I picked this one out because it looked tasty and it didn't let me down. My husband was shocked that I made it myself and I have to say I like it better than bottled sauce. Finger licking good! (we used it on pork ribs) Read More

This was really really good! BUT if you're looking for the genuine "BBQ" flavor- this isn't really that- but me and my hubby LOVED it. Tastes so good on out hamburgers. It's a definate keeper! (didn't have a lemon so I used 1 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice.) Oh and I used 2 cloves of minced garlic instead of powder as I LOVE garlic. Read More

Loved it! I was looking for something with the ingredients I had and this was it! I doubled the recipe as follows: 1/2 c. apple cider vinegar 1 cup ketchup 3/4 c. water 1/2 c. brown sugar sprinkle of Lawry's seasoning a couple dashes of worcestersire sauce and... I sauteed a 1/4 of a small onion (chopped fine)and 1 chopped garlic clove and tossed it all in the bowl at the same time. I did make a couple of squirts of ketchup to make a thicker consistency. After all that....I had some boneless pork ribs tossed them in the crockpot and put the BBQ mixture over the top. Stirred together and cooked about 4 hrs. on high then turned to low until we were ready for dinner. When we were ready to eat I took a large slotted spoon and separated the pork. I then ladled it onto good hamburger buns and even the kids ate all their dinner! I think next time I will use the Hawaiian buns. Overall YUMMY!! (even hubby said so and he doesn't say things too often!) Read More

It was a good recipe to use in a pinch as all ingredients are usually easily accessible. It kept the meat tender. Next time I will add more fresh garlic and smoke flavour and maybe 1Tbsp whiskey! You won't go wrong with this recipe. Read More

If you're using this as a replacement for bottled BBQ sauce you're going to be disappointed. However if you're using this for a meat baster or IN something calling for BBQ sauce it imparts nice flavor. I used this in "Slow Cooker Baked Beans" by wannabe chefette on this site and it was a PERFECT addition to that recipe in lieu of bottled BBQ sauce. THANKS for the recipe Dave G! Read More

I would more consider this as a sauce for shrimp cocktail - not a bbq sauce. As a seafood sauce - I'd give this 5 stars. Read More
