This is the real deal, for someone serious about barbecue! Not for the faint of heart or namby pampy. If you think Heinz original or K.C. Masterpiece is good, you will die for this sauce!

My son and I decided that our smoked barbeque ribs were great and deserved a great sauce. We each chose what we thought would be the best homemade sauce. I chose your recipe and was hands down the winner. This recipe, when strained, has a very deep rich appearance with flavor to match. Thank you for this easy to make winner.
