Recipe by Alan Leonetti
This is a blend of incredible flavors that combine to make this WONDERFUL sauce. It is meant to be served on any kind of pork, ham or pork roast, as well as being used as a GREAT BBQ sauce for cooking, grilling, or smoking ribs, chicken, etc..

This was a great BBQ sauce!! Complex...Rich(butter), smokey(bacon), spicy and sticky/sweet (molasses/br. sugar) . I think I may bottle some of this and give away as hostess gifts this summer! Thanks so much for posting, Alan. =)
