Followed the recipe with the addition of 1 extra slice of bacon. I used Franks Red Hot for the hot sauce. I really thought 2 tsp of liquid smoke would be too much but it turned out perfect. Hubby and I LOVED this recipe. Don't think I'll be buying that yucky store bought stuff ever again. Thank you for sharing. Read More

3.28.20 I cooked the bacon slices whole, and during the last two minutes of simmering the sauce, crumbled the bacon and added it back to the skillet. We don’t like liquid smoke, so I didn’t add that, otherwise, I followed the recipe. Good balance of sweet-tart with perfect sauce consistency. Enjoyed last night on grilled split chicken breasts, and it was delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe, I’ll make this again. Read More

This is the best sauce I've ever had. I made a few changes to it. I carmelized the bacon (used thick bacon) and onions with brown sugar. Added more brown sugar, into the sauce too. I wanted more sweet and heat, so I added Grape Jelly, and Cayenne Pepper. Amazing. A smoky flavor from maybe a smoked chili powder would have been great too. Going to try that next time. Simply amazing! Read More

I made this and stuck to the recipe with the exception of the dijon mustard. I subbed spicy mustard because that is all I had, and it was delicious! I was so impressed with how easy this was and with the amazing amount of flavor. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you so much! And don't doubt the amount of liquid smoke that is in this recipe. It was actually the perfect amount and I would not change it at all. Read More
