At first I was disappointed at the very strong vinegar flavor however I added worcestershire liquid smoke and garlic marinated a chuck roast overnight and then cooked it in a crockpot for 10 hours. It made one heck of a shredded beef sandwich on a Brown and Serve roll. Excellent! Read More

This was certainly tasty but after it cooked down I was left with less than a cup of sauce which is certainly not 12 servings. So some of us got to enjoy this sauce and the rest of our guests were stuck with bottled. Read More

Sweet with a kick! I cut the chili powder and cayenne to 1/2 teaspoon because I was concerned it would be to spicy for the kids. I cut back on the sugar slightly but after tasting added the full amount. My sauce thickened up a lot sooner than 45 minutes. Read More

This was really great! I followed the recipe exactly and served it on steak. Next time I will try chicken or something different but it definitely compliments steak perfectly. It was a little bit spicier than I'd imagined it would be. That was good for me because I 3 spicy food but my boyfriend not so much (acid reflux issues). He said it was so good he didn't want to stop eating it even though the spiceyness was a tad painful for him haha. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I prepared this 3 days ago. I wasn't sure about it at first. It has a sweetness to it but then the heat creeps up the pallet. However...I said the rest in a sealed glass container in the fridge and after a few days the ingredients have mellowed. The sauce is thicker tangier and the heat is mellowed too. To me it rivals most store bought sauces. Nice! Read More

Very good sauce except a little strong vinegar and to spicy for some people. I cut the vinegar to 1 1/2 cups and added 1/4 cup water. Cut the Chili Powder and Cayenne to 1/2 tsp Ea. Over all it is a very good sauce. Thanks Read More

This BBQ sauce is excellent. I followed the recipe exactly except for omitting the cayenne pepper. In its place I added about a tablespoon of chipotle in adobo because I wanted a bit of smoky-spice. It's the perfect blend of spicy sweet smoky and tangy. I reduced it for about 45 minutes and it's the perfect consistency. I will make this again and again. Read More

This was very good. Used it for pulled pork and BBQ spare ribs....I couldn't get it to thicken up as much as I wanted it so it didn't get five stars. Read More
