Great and very vinegar-y and sweet! I made it for a bbq while camping and everybody just loved it! It's definitely more liquid-y than I thought, but the taste is great.

I made this last night and it was wonderful! I don't think I'll use any other recipe. The only change I made was to use salted butter b/c I didn't have unsalted. Thanks for posting this recipe!!

I am making this right now. LOVING IT!<br/>Made a couple of adjustments on the recipe, nothing major. Cut back on the vinegar.<br/>Hoping to thicken it up a bit though. Might add a little tomato paste for that.<br/>Well done! :)

Ok so initally I was a little scared by the first ingredient but WOW was I ever wrong! This cooked up great and it was super easy. I halved the recipe because this makes quite a lot of sauce. Will make this all the time for the BBQ season - thank you so much for posting this awesome recipe!

Hi, I made this today. We had chicken salad today but as it said it can be stored in the fridge. I did however put some on a piece of french bread and it tasted great. I had root beer. (then again I would). My brothers own 3 A &W restaurants. The only change I made was to reduce the salt to 1/4 tsp.

This was a fun BBQ sauce to try! If I hadn't known the "secret ingredient", I never would have guessed root beer! This is a very rich sauce with lots of flavor, just a touch sweet, but more so tangy. If you like a more vinegar-based BBQ sauce, this is a fun one! I enjoyed it much, and my kids had fun "cooking" root beer! We love you, Amy!
