This review is for the sauce only. I halved this recipe and kept the brown sugar (I used all light brown sugar with about 1/2 c molasses for a bit more depth) at the same amount of 2 cups. Used for my smoked ribs, this bbq recipe is Kick'n good...like can't wait to use it again good. Even though I only made half this recipe I still have about 1 1/2 c left to make some chicken with it this week. Definitely a keeper!
