Fantastic! I have tried many different ones. This is the best in my opinion. Some of my family did complain of the heat so I guess I will have to cut back on it but the flavor was out of this world. I will be making this a lot I'm sure. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Wow! Really good sauce. I've found so many really good bbq sauces on zaar, and this one does not disappoint. Good and tangy, sweet, with just a bit of spice, but nothing overpowering. I made this last night and let it sit in the fridge, and today it's more mellow as far as spice, but the flavors balance nicely. This is going to be used in some sloppy joes tomorrow, as dinner plans for tonight have changed, and it's gonna be great. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe. I used a touch more liquid smoke, as mine was weak, and added a bit of molasses. No other changes.

Made this for our first official BBQ of the season. Served with burgers and hotdogs. My 8y/o, who normally hates anything with BBQ sauce, smelled it while I was cooking it and wanted to try it. I said,:"you don't like BBQ sauce",she still wanted a taste and loved it! That in itself was miraculous! This sauce has a great blend of flavors and was super easy to make. I used mesquite flavor liquid smoke.This BBQ sauce has a tang that was perfect for the hotdogs we grilled. Next time I might add a touch of molasses.

Excellent sauce. Very bold tasting and spices are just right. Makes you lick your fingers good. :) Great with pulled pork. I followed the recipe exactly.

You have a hit here...and I have been making my own sauces for years. I, too, used half the brown sugar and half molasses. Also cranked up the heat a bit by using a whole teaspoon of cayenne. Good stuff

This isn't your run-of-the-mill Kansas City style BBQ sauce. This is as close as I have found to an authentic Beale Street in Memphis mop sauce. I tweeked-it a bit by cutting the sugar in half and adding molasses in its place. Yeah!

I cut back to 1/4 c. on the mustard and it worked for us. We grill all the time and we are always looking for new sauces to try, so we came on here to try some of the ones here. So far we have had terrific luck! This one is no exception. Tangy with lots of flavor, we enjoyed it a lot on a couple a racks of baby backs!

Delicious BBQ. Ended up with a very strong mustard flavor - would use less next time. Made a great marinade as well as extra for dipping. Thanks for a great tangy recipe - like I expect for Memphis style.
