This is an awesome Barbecue Sauce. The taste is "just perfect". A lot of the bottled sauces are too tangy, too strong, etc. This does not get super thick and it has more of a mild flavor. You can use it on anything but the author highly recommends it on Chicken, ribs and pork. The recipe is from Steven Raichlen, author of The "Barbecue Bible".

I originally found this recipe on the Food Network and have been enjoying it for years. If you want a thicker sauce, it will thicken if simmered for 20 minutes or so. It also works great in the cockpot with ribs or chicken simmered all day. It's fantastic!!
