Thanks a bunch! Your moms bbq sauce is awsome stuff -- I made 2 batches, one with apricot and one with grape jelly. Both were fantastic with the grape being a bit sweeter -- (but not as much as I would have thought). I really liked the way the lemon gave it fresh taste without taking away from the sweetness. As you warned tho, all the sugar does make it char very fast so brush it on at the very end and keep your eye on it!

this is sooo good. i didnt add preserves but it was still good. i used soy sauce instead of worcesterchire, and it was still good. i think the butter did it! =)

This is terrific. I put it on a pork shoulder that I grilled outside and it was just awesome.

Bev, this sauce was outstanding, thank-you Bev's Mom!! and while I'm here Bev, thanks for putting me onto the dry heat pulled pork, what a difference!! I made three sauces to go with it, this one was a hit with everyone! We didn't use preserves, will try them next time. I particularly like the fact that there was not a lot of sugar, some others are a bit sweet for me. We loved the combination of flavours,the lemon was nice rather than a lot of vinegar and the butter really smoothed it out!! I will use this as a regular sauce to do all kinds of meats, thanks for sharing an outstanding recipe!!

The key to using this sauce and not having it burn is put on a thin coat about half way through cooking, then again about 10 minutes before you take it off the grill, and cook it low and slow! Delicious sauce! We used it on some ribs we had last week. We are dying to have it again on some chicken.

WOWEE! This is a superb recipe - the sauce is not too sweet and it is soooo delicious! I have a sauce recipe I have used for many many years, but this is the one I will use from now on. Used orange marmalade instead of the peach or apricot preserves (had none) and it was great! Used it on barbecued ribs. Will definitely go into my favorite recipe file! Thanks so much for sharing, Bev.

Wow! I still can't figure out what makes this taste so good! I added a drop or two of liquid smoke and cannot believe how fast and easy this amazing sauce is. The perfect amount of spice and tang. Thanks for sharing!

AWESOME!! my kitchen smelled so yummy while cooking. I doubled the recipe and put it in a crock pot with beef boneless ribs. I didn't have Worcestershire sauce or tabasco. I have bufflo wing sauce so I used that. Tasted great!!!

Was looking for an easy Barbeque sauce recipe. I believe I found it. Added a little more brown sugar, and some honey was very good with a Roast Pork Loin. Thank you. Maryann
