If you like sweet bbq sauce this one will do it. But I cut the sugar down to 1/4 cup and it was still sickening sweet. Next time I'll cut it even more. It's a good sauce I liked it got all of that sweet and sour tang and bite I was looking for just too sweet. Read More

I don t know how Kansas City BBQ sauce is supposed to taste but we liked this recipe...a lot! Had a bunch of ingredients but they all had a good balance. This had just the right amount of spiciness for us you could taste the cayenne but it didn t overwhelm. We did the omit the liquid smoke because we don t care for it and I think we d cut back the Truvia a little next time as it was just a bit too sweet. I have a favorite BBQ sauce I ve been making for years that I clipped from the paper (Chickashaw Sauce from Jake s Ribs in Chickashaw Oklahoma) but this could be a candidate for our new favorite sauce. It s a keeper. Read More

This is so delicious. Substituted sugar for only 1/2 cup stevia in the Raw. Still was too sweet. But awesome. Read More

I used no salt added tomato sauce one can and 1/4 cup no salt ketchup eliminated the additional salt for a tasty low sodium version. I used apple cider vinegar and substituted a small amount of brown sugar for sweetener. I was out of cinnamon so I cooked with a cinnamon stick. Looking forward to having it with my pulled pork I cooked in the crockpot. Read More
