excellent, cut the cloves all spice and cin. in 1/2. It takes so long to make ...worth it...but do you think you could process it in jars. i don't see why...any thoughts? Thanks

Very good recipe but found that the cloves overpowered the overall flavor. I will make it again but reduce the amt of cloves and allspice. Thanks for a great recipe!

Nice spicy flavor--this will replace my previous BBQ sauce used in shredded beef sandwiches, and I thought that one was good! Thanks, Roger, for sharing.

I used part of this to make sloppy joes and they were the best sloppy joes I've ever made. I've tried a ton of recipes and never could find a sloppy joe recipe that I liked but this is it! Can't wait to try it on some bbq once it stops raining long enough! I'm going to make a batch of this and give it to my kids. I've been telling them how wonderful it tastes and they keep asking me when I'm going to make it. Thanks Roger for the jar of sauce and for the recipe to make more when I run out! It's excellent!!

Absolutely the best BBQ sauce ever! I tried it last year and it was such a big hit that I just finished doubling the recipe for this years BBQ season. Expensive to make the first time buy well worth the cost!!!

We loved the heat and can hardly wait to try on chicken. We had this as one of 3 new sauces for a pig on a spit party and it was a great hit. Doing a bigger porker in 2 weeks for a new gang and can hardly wait to share.

GREAT recipe!!! Would definitely use again. I tried 1/2ing the recipe. My variations: 32 oz bottle ketchup, instead of chili sauce (don't know what this is) used 1 6oz can tomato paste and 2 chiplote pepers blended, used green bell peppers, wasn't sure what type of peppers the recipe called for. I just brought to a boil, then turned down to lowest setting and let it simmer overnight.

Well, I had the spaghetti sauce and now I've had the barbecue sauce, and all I can say is, Running Creek must be located in a little corner of heaven. Like the spaghetti sauce this smelled and tasted absolutely superb. I made chicken sloppy joes with it, and am planning on using the left-overs (which I've frozen) with some pulled pork or ribs soon (probably after Thanksgiving). Compliments to the chef, Roger/OH!

Being a native of Memphis, where barbequeing is a near-sacred ritual, I've tasted many a BBQ sauce -- and this one is way up there with the best of the them! It absolutely rocks!! Sweet, hot, smokey...wonderful, complex flavors that meld beautifully after long, slow cooking and then reheating the next day. (Don't rush it!) BBQ fanatics can't ever resist making a few changes, of course. Next time, I'm going to reduce the amount of cloves, increase the Liquid Smoke and strain it. Everyone loved the flavor the veggies gave it but prefer a smoother texture. Basically, though, it got nothing but raves all around! What a wonderful 'heirloom' recipe, Roger. Thanks so much for sharing it!
