    Mom used to make this every year, and use it for braising, baking, grilling or broiling- mostly chicken, but I have used it on pork as well.

      Very nice sauce. Good consistency. I would cut down a little on the vinegar next time though.

      This really is a delicious recipe, and makes the home smell wonderful! However, Bogey'sMom was right, it's not a "barbecue sauce" but much more of a chili sauce. Mixed with a little bit of grape jelly, it would make a fabulous sauce for meatballs!!

      I gave this 4 stars because although it was a good sauce for marinating or grilling, it really was not very "barbecue-y". It's pretty sweet and the spices are really "sweet" spices as well. It will definitely be excellent for grilling chicken and I'll use every drop I made, but I would not consider this barbecue.
