Extremely Tasty Hot and Spicy Tropical Barbecue Sauce

Okay....the name says it all, except that this is quick and easy to make! It uses items you grab off the grocery store shelves and throw together in a saucepan. Within 10 minutes you have a "WOW" tasting sauce. This isn't for a pork sandwich (although you could), but it is fabulous with grilled chicken, fish, or pork. Since the first review, I decided to add: If you can't find hot mustard based barbecue sauce, regular mustard based sauce will do, just add some dried red pepper flakes. The mustard barbecue sauce I use is very hot.

Extra delicious! I used 1 cup of Sweet Baby Ray's and 1 cup of Guy Fieri's Carolina BBQ sauce and added 1 T of prepared mustard along with the other ingredients. It was the perfect combination of tangy sweet and spicy! We just loved this on pork chops and think it would be ideal for ribs!

We enjoyed this sauce on pork tenderloin. Really good flavor. I also think I might try fresh ginger next time. I used honey mustard BBQ sauce (because that is all I could find) and added some prepared yellow mustard and a dash of cayenne pepper. I cut the recipe in half to cover 2 pork tenderloins. Thanks for the recipe. Made for Every Day is a Holiday tag.

This certainly was a really simple sauce to prepare,and it did taste very good. I did expect a bit more heat (the title suggested it!!),and although the ground ginger did give the sauce a lovely flavour,it didn't really deliver a kick.Maybe next time I would try some fresh ginger. Don't get me wrong,this is a great barbecue sauce,and it's definitely worth making,I certainly will do it again!!
