I am probably not the best person to be rating this recipe as I have never had Kansas City BBQ sauce. For me this tasted more like a tomato sauce rather than a BBQ sauce. I followed the recipe as written and even went and bought apple juice and molasses, as I didn't have that on hand. I thought with the vinegar, molasses and horseradish it would taste like a standard BBQ sauce but for me the tomato flavor came through more and tasted more like a spaghetti sauce. This was definitely edible just not what I expected. Made for Spring PAC 2008.
