My mom gave me this recipe after years of my begging for it! Awesome for Sloppy Joe's or as a fantastic finish to hot dogs!

These were excellent. Fast, easy, yet very flavorful, Really delicious BBQ taste. I made Sloppy Joes out of the sauce. I think I have a new favorite recipe for Sloppy Joes. Thanks!
