Seminole Garnet Barbecue Sauce

Slightly sweet, slightly spicy. Great on anything you put on the grill. Being a Florida State graduate, I call this my Seminole Garnet Sauce. If you prefer a Mustard based sauce, check out Seminole Gold Barbecue Sauce.

This is some AWESOME barbecue sauce! Used on baby back ribs and put on about half way through cooking the rib, and turned them on low and slow cooked them so they wouldn't burn, then added a generous amount about 10 minutes before we took them off the grill! We were licking our chops waiting for them to be done, then licking our fingers as we ate LOL Luscious!!!

I just made this sauce looking for a good kentucky bourbon sauce, and this is delicious, I personally like it a litle hotter so I added a bit more Tabasco sauce to the mix and I love it

This is an awesome sauce. It's tangy, sweet & spicy. The flavors are beyond words. I used mesquite liquid smoke and only used 1/2 tbsp because my husband doesn't like a real smokey flavor. You have got to try it!!
