I cook at a Retirement home and the residents loved this sauce.Now I did a few changes. I minced the onions and used Apple Cider for the vinegar and added liquid smoke and Cayenne Powder just enough to give a a twang.I also make this recipe for 50 people so I used a whole can of Ketchup. This recipe is the best I have ever tasted!!! Thanks a million! Read More

Whoa! In a word: SOUR! I added 2 extra tb molasses and a tb or 2 of brown sugar to make it palatable as well as a couple dashes liquid smoke just for fun. I'll make it again with less vinegar. It is certainly quick and easy. Original recipe gets 3 stars but my additions bumped it up to 4. Read More

At first I was skeptical about the cornstarch but this recipe actually turned out great! My husband said it clung well to the meat on the BBQ and we both thought it tasted just like in a restaurant! I did add an extra tablespoon of molasses a dash garlic salt and 1/2 tsp liquid smoke (hickory) and used some dried minced onion and onion powder (cuz I had run out of onion). A keeper for us!

This is a great recipe. I added a few things to it to make it suit our taste. I added a bit more worschestire red pepper and black pepper and I will cut down on the vinegar next tme but if you like a lot of tang leave the vinegar in. I slow cooked it in the crock pot with beans and the smell and flavor was outstanding. Read More

I used this sauce for chicken thighs and it was sooo good! It doesn't even come close to store bought bbq sauce. Next time I will try it on ribs! Read More

Yummy!!!! I poured this over chicken and let it cook in the slow cooker. Didn't change the original recipe only added a tiny bit of liquid smoke(mesquite)and brown sugar. The whole family enjoyed it very much and wanted to know when I could make it again. Very impressive when something pleases the whole family! Thank you so very much for sharing this recipe! Read More
