Foster's Barbecue Sauce/Marinade

Total Time

I love this sauce because its thin and doesn't have a base of ketchup or mustard. Its a real barbecue marinade/sauce and made to tenderize any meat before grilling. You may also baste lightly while grilling and then serve some on the side with your meal. I found this recipe in the newspaper years ago.

This marinade deserves more than 5 stars! I used this to marinate some pork ribs a couple months ago, they were fantastic, so I am using again today for chicken. This marinade would be great for any kind of meat. Thanks so much for posting, I will definitely be using this over and over again!

The party is over and ALL the chicken is gone. The marinade was fantastic and people raved about the chicken. A 10 star keeper!
