Homestead Barbecue Sauce

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This is a recipe that my dad made every summer when I was a kid. You can vary the type of pepper you use to get a different level of heat. I like mine on the mild side. This barbecue sauce is good on just about anything you put it on from chicken to steak to French fries! Sauce must be kept refrigerated."

This turned out pretty good. A little heavy on the Worcestershire but still good. I liked the addition of coffee and chili powder.
