Excellent sauce. I did do a couple changes. I used honey instead of molasses reduced the oil by half and I cooked it down for several minutes so it thickened and the sugar dissolved. It was amazing on oven roasted chicken drumsticks. Read More

Very Tasty! Just the right amount of sweet & spice. I cut The recipe in half & added 1 TBLS each of instant chopped onion and bottled minced garlic. I also simmered it on the stove for 10-15 min. to combine flavors & to thicken it as mentioned by a previous reviewer. Read More

I omitted the white sugar but it was still very sweet for my taste. Next time I will halve the molasses. It is a keeper though! Great for dipping ribs. Read More

I didn't have taco sauce so I just used tomato sauce. I also substituted honey for molasses and left the mustard out and it still came out great! Read More

this sauce was perfect for my chicken wings. I made it because I wanted something different from the normal hot sauce I usually make. My two sons devoured these up and asked me to make it again for the next weekend! Read More

It's a good recipe. I didn't have taco sauce so I used ketchup. Because ketchup is already sweet I skipped the white sugar and only added half the molasses. Even that was a little too much and I ended up adding a little more vinegar to balance it back out again. The only other change I made was to add a couple of drops of liquid smoke to it. Really good as is though! Read More

Fabulous. Since I am diabetic I am always looking for recipes for good barbecue sauce. I replaced the sugar with Agave and added some garlic and onions. We put it over a leftover roast and it was again fabulous. A keeper in my file. Read More
