Fantastic! I made minor substitutions based on what I had on hand, and it still turned out fan-freaking-tastic! Thanks for posting. :)
This is great bbq sauce; tangy, sweet, spicy, smokey-it's got it all. And the corn syrup makes it glossy and cling to the food it's brushed onto. I cooked this down at a medium simmer (as opposed to a slow simmer) and it was plenty thick after 1 hour. I loved everything about this sauce-there's nothing I would change.
Very good, and cheap to make considering the price of bbq sauce here. Was much better the second day. Really needed to sit in the fridge at least overnight. I had to boil it down for quite a làong time too--longer than in the recipe. When it was still hot, even though VERYreduced, I was still unhappy with the consistency. This morning, I looked at it again, and it is the perfect consistency. This will become one more thing that I no longer have to buy in the store!
This recipe is fantastic! It never got super thick, but maybe I needed to boil it down more. It didn't matter to me, I thought the flavor was superb and will be our barbecue sauce from now on! Thank you for sharing this recipe! LA :-)
Much much better then store bought BBQ sauce. I loved this and so did my hubby! Thank you so very much for sharing this! EXCELLENT STUFF!!!!!! I will make this our staple sauce and will not be buying that Bulls Eye or Kraft anymore!!!
I didn't use the salt substitute, I am a salt addict and used more than a teaspoon (the salt I use is less salty than table or sea salt). It didn't smell too great while it was simmering and the flavor didn't really develope until it sat in the refrigerator overnight...but once it did, I was really glad I made it. My son said this was better than KC Masterpiece. I agree, I usually have to "doctor" the KCM but this didn't need to be "fixed".
Mmmmmm... love that "Barbecue Sauce". I mean this was even better than the brand I buy from the store. It was sweet, tangy and that liquid smoke which I haven't even used before, now gave it a smokey flavor, without being to overwhelming. I made this with some hamburgers and pork chop the other day with my toaster oven and it was like an SYMPHONEY playing an SONNET (?SP) or MELODY even, in my mouth. My hubby told me to keep this recipe for the 4th of July. We want to celebrate our Idependance, with this HARMONIOUS, sauce that you were so kind to share with us here, at RECIPEZAAR. Thank you, sincerley. Keep on giving us those recipes. :-)
