This was delicious!!! I used it on pork ribs and it was perfect. Sticky, sweet and spicy all at once. I used a local ale and NO cilantro - just can't eat that stuff! Made for 1,2,3 Tag. Thanks! :)

Yep! DH wanted to know what the wonderful smell was. He really isn't a beer drinker although I did have some left over from a "Guy thing", which I used. He loved the sauce. I did simmer it till it thicken. About 2 hours. It has a wonderful spicy flavor with a bite. I served mine over grilled chicken breast and also along side of it. Yum! Thanks for posting. :)

Excellent sauce!!!!! I made this to use on some fall off the bone babyback ribs. Since I was only grilling one rack of ribs, I cut the recipe in half. This is easy to get together with items I normally have on hand and I let this simmer while my ribs were cooking in the oven. Thanks Vicki for sharing this great BBQ sauce!!! Made for 123 Tag.
