This is a delicious and easy barbeque sauce that has been in my family for years. It is terrific on ribs and chicken.

Very GOOD! I halved the recipe used yellow mustard in place of the mustard powder cut the brown sugar to 1/4 cup and and 1/8 cup of vinegar. I used this on the marinated grilled chicken II recipe. DELICIOUS! Simply easy and not too sweet with cutting back on the sugar. This makes a smaller serving amount than stated. If you want to have extra sauce on the side make sure to double the recipe!

I made this exactly as written and I did not care for it. The vinegar/ketchup taste is overpowering. It is also incredibly runny. Now I'm standing over the stove adding ingredients trying to salvage it. I would NEVER make this again! Read More

The first time I tried this I used it in a crockpot pork rib recipe (Honey Ribs here on this site) so I diluted it a bit (didn't need too....it turned out too runny that way) but I was pleasantly surprised at how flavorful the ribs still turned out! The 3rd time I poured it directly over pork ribs abd baked them for about 1 1/2 hours and ohhhh my goodness! Soooooo delicious!! These were the BEST ribs I have made in a long time if ever! The flavor was AMAZING!! Very very good! And I love that it was so easy to throw together. I am done buying BBQ sauce anymore I'll just make it because its so much better! Read More

Great simple recipe. I substituted garlic salt for celery salt and added a couple of dashes of liquid smoke. I would recommmend doubling the recipe if you are like my family & like a lot of sauce. Read More

This is a great barbeque sauce! I was able to make it very quickly and used it for ribs. This sauce is sweet yet enough "kick" to it for those that like the tang or spice...VERY GOOD no matter what! Read More

This recipe is awesome! I followed the directions exactly except I added 1/2 tsp liquid smoke like others did. I marinated chicken breast in the sauce for a couple hours then threw it all in a pan and covered it. Very flavorful. Read More

This was excellent. I didnt' measure the ingredients but tried to be proportional. I think the allspice is the secret ingredient with this one but dont' use more than called for or it will be overpowering. Read More

Very good taste on the pork shoulders I cooked them on. I added Cayenne Pepper to my taste gave it a little more heat. Great for eating and watching football. Read More
