A very good all purpose sauce with a bite.

Top Review by RogerOH

This was a very unique sauce. I do not use much cumin and that is where I believe the unique flavor came from. I used these on some baby backs. As a dipping sauce I was not real impressed. Maybe a 3 star. When mopped on the ribs and alowwed to carmalize the sauce was great. The carmalization seemed to change the flavor.I will make it again as a mop to ribs. Thanks
