      Dr. Pepper is my all-time favorite drink, and my family thought I was nuts to sacrifice one of my precious cans of the stuff, but it was worth it! You could say this recipe is made up of ingredients that I can't really get in Israel. Dr. Pepper is rare, and the Worcestershire sauce, A-1 Steak Sauce and liquid smoke were all sent to me by wonderful Zaar friends. I used some local hot sauce. I added the zest of the lemon to the mix as well. I rubbed it all over a brisket and let it sit in the crockpot on low for about 8 hours. Although it is for tonight's dinner, I made this yesterday and let it chill before slicing it into serving pieces. I had a taste, and it was a huge effort not to scarf the whole thing down right there and then. Chia, this really rocks, and was worth the sacrifice of the Dr. Pepper!

      Quite good!! This was my very first attempt at homemade BBQ sauce. I will cut back the A-1 next time, as it was quite strong in the recipe - it really took over the recipe. Otherwise, we really liked this. It worked very well on baked chicken. Thank you for this great recipe!! I know with a little tweaking, this will become our favorite!!

      Wow, Wow, Wow! This is my 4th or 5th time (I can't remember) making the BBQ sauce again and again. My parents can't get enough of it. I made some yesterday, but I did it a little different: I added 1 T. light brown sugar for a little sweetness (I've been adding 1 T corn syrup also, but I didn't want to do that), and let the mixture reduce about 15-20 minutes. It was still loose, but since I'm from NC, runny barbecue sauce= delicious. I buy a can of Dr. Pepper at another school's vending machine (the school where I go to for extra homeschool classes). My friends stared at me when I mentioned the recipe, but they just don't understand. Like Mirj said, this really rocks, and is absolutely worth a can of Dr. Pepper.
