This is the first barbecue sauce I have ever made - actually, it didn't even occur to me that you could make it. I loved it. My kids and husband loved it. I made about 3/4 of the sauce (approximating amounts). I also used brown sugar and less mustard (1/2 dijon and 1/2 yellow). It was fantastic on steaks! I am reformed. I have a good amount leftover and in the fridge. Can't wait to use it next time. Highly recommend!

I needed a quick easy barbecue sauce at the last minute when I realized I didn't have any and needed some for a recipe. This fit the bill perfectly. I made 1/4 of a batch which made about 1 cup. I used half Jack Daniels Old No. 7 mustard and half yellow ballpark mustard. Thanks Tonkcats!
