This is so flavorful! Dana, we love it!!! Easy to make, and sure smells good simmering. It is an excellent combination of ingredients... spicy, tangy, just a tiny hint of sweet... just the way I like it!

Jeff Hixon (a long-time Recipezaar-er) made it for our Boy Scout troop along with pulled pork. It was fabulous!!! He held back a little on the cayanne & chili, but I could also see it going up to full strength. Thank you so much for posting it.

This BBQ sauce is wonderful especially for people who do not like a real sweet BBQ sauce which I do but this was still delicious and my boyfriend just loved it. We used it on grilled ribs and chicken. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe, Dana.

Thank you Dana, for another great recipe! We made this for a get-together...they licked the bowl! Had it with burgers, ribs and chicken...great on everything! Followed your recipe exactly!

I highly recommend everyone to add a little honey to this recipe, it gives it the right amount of sweetness and balances out that strong flavor. I've used this recipe a few times to make bbq smokies and its a perfect hors d'oeuvre! Now that I've discovered the new twist with honey, I love it even more!

This BBQ sauce is sooo good! I made it lower carb by using Heinz 1 Carb Ketchup and substituted the brown sugar with Stevia in the Raw cup for cup. I'm sure it's wonderful made exactly as the recipe is. I also added a tiny bit (1/2 tsp?) of liquid smoke because it just needed something, but with my substitutions that is to be expected. I basted grilled porksteaks with it. YUM YUM.

This was gooood!!! I used accidentally used smoked paprika instead of chili powder (oops!). I added 1tsp ancho chile powder hoping it would balance it out... turned out great!!!

Mmmmm! I bbq chicken with a rub and then topped with this sauce. Excellent! Didn't change a thing, except I didn't read first about saute the onions and garlic in oil. I just mixed all in a saucepan and cooked to boiling and simmered 30 minutes. Will make again, and again, and again....

I am sorry..we did not like this sauce. 1/3 cup Worcestershire was way too much for us. I followed the steps exactly, and after it was done added more of the other ingred. to balance it out but it was still overpowering.
