  • “This is very good.I changed the recipe to a little over 1/4 cup vinegar, and about 1/4 cup brown sugar, the full amout of brown sugar makes it to sweet for us.We also add about a tablespoon full of worchestershire sauce adds a wonderful flavor.I also make a spicy one with a table spoon plus one teaspoon full of tabasco, and about one teaspoon full of paprika.Good luck!”

  • “This is the perfect blend of sweet and sour to make a fantastic sauce. I used it on pork ribs.”

  • “This is a good recipe, though a little too tangy for me. I might reduce the vinegar next time and add a bit of spice to give it a little heat.”

  • “Great, easy recipe!I needed BBQ sauce for a recipe and didn’t have a bottle but did have all the ingredients on hand to make this.I’ll make it again for sure!”

  • “Yummy!!!I didn’t have any onion salt so I added dehydrated onions and a bit more brown sugar.My son loved it.I won’t buy bbq sauce again.”

  • “Fast, easy, delicious and it made the kitchen smell great; what more can be said about this great sauce except that it was great in the baked beans, also.Thank you for posting, Theresa.”

  • “We will have to give this one two thumbs up.We used our bbq sauce for pulled pork sandwiches.We cut the recipe in half and it was perfect.We will be using this one again.Thanks for posting,Michelle”

  • “I have finally found the perfect BBQ sauce, what more is there to say?I had a left over roasted pork tenderloin.Made this sauce, “pulled” the tenderloin and mixed it with the sauce.AWESOME!!!Thanks!!”

  • “Used this on beef ribs. Hubby thought it was awesome! Gonna make up a couple more batches to use for chicken nuggets,etc.”

  • “I have tried several BBQ sauce recipes on here. This is “the one!” We will never have to make any other recipe! Easy and so delicious.”

  • “Awesome sauce!My oldest daughter is the most persnickity eater I ever met and she loved this sauce.She kept eating it after all of the food was gone!”

  • “Great tasting sauce…..I only made 1/2 of the recipe because it is just the 2 of us here.I wasn’t too sure why vinegar was listed twice in the ingredient list so I just used a little at a time until I found it was balanced. Probably about 1/8 cup.”

  • “Very good recipe!I changed the ketchup to tomato paste and added a tablespoon of dijon mustard.Great on ribs but I am sure it would be great on anything!”

  • “I ‘christened’ my liquid smoke (gift from Nan in the calendar swap) on this – wow!! A fabulous recipe! I used black treacle instead of molasses – and also added quite a lot of Tabasco to spice it up! A great success!! Thanks for a cracker of a recipe!”

  • “I’ve tried several and I finally found it!This is the one- woo hoo!Great depth of flavor- loved it!I made a few changes based on the comments and what I had in the pantry… used 3 T. brown sugar (that was all that was left!), 1/4 c. cider vinegar, onion powder and garlic salt, reduced the liquid smoke to 2 1/2t. and added 1/2t. flamin hot sauce. Fantastic results!Thanks for a great sauce that is also easily adaptable.”

  • “Great BBQ sauce.I did add some tabasco and peri peri to it to spice it up a bit.It is a bit on the sweet side but that is great for the BBQ.”
