This recipe is delicious! I made a small change however I added a chipotle pepper instead of cayenne. It tasted exactly like the honey chipotle sauce from Chilis! So yummy! I'm getting ready to make a huge batch for some baked beans and canning some for later. Read More

We were a little short on honey and we used cumin instead of the liquid smoke. But this sauce turned our wings into the best we've ever had. Great recipe! Read More

I'm allergic to garlic, so I leave out the garlic powder and the chili powder. I add a bit more cayenne and paprika. And it is still delicious! And no chemicals you might find in the bottled BBQ sauce. I store it in a Mason jar, so one less plastic bottle in the landfill. Read More

The whole family liked the sauce. A few had slight comments about it though. My wife thought the original recipe was too spicy so she added more honey. My daughter thought after the honey was added it was too sweet. But all-in-all it was delicious either way. I will make it again. Read More

This was a great BBQ sauce! The only variation was that I cut the amount of cayenne in half just for personal preference. Made ribs with this sauce that were just melt in your mouth delicious! Thanks for sharing! Made this again as written with full amount of the cayenne and we loved the heat! Yum!! Read More

Exactly what I was looking for to use up some pork & make pulled BBQ sandwiches. Sooooo good!!!! I plan to make a larger batch & give as Christmas gifts in baskets I make for Christmas-it was THAT good. My ONLY alteration was I sub'd some Mango Medium Hot Sauce I bought at a local Farmers Market for the liquid smoke. I am sure it gave a different flavor than the original recipe but this came out awesome!!!!! Thank you for another great Allrecipe!!!! Read More
