This is a very good barbecue sauce. And mostly cause that way we can control the sodium a bit more. I didn't use salt in it. Thanks 2Bleu. Made for Please Review My Recipe

I made this sauce for ribs on the grill. A nice tangy sauce for the ribs and one I will use again for pork loins. As we're use to using something more sweet like SweetBabyRay's this was a nice trade-off and one I was willing to give a try. Glad I tagged and made for Photoforum!
