      Woooooweeeeee! This makes for a delicious bbq sauce with a kick. What a wonderful blend of spices and flavors. They all work well together and complement each other perfectly. I used this on some chicken. During the last 15 minutes or so of grilling, I started basting this bbq sauce onto the chicken. It turned out great! Made for ZWT8 India

      Delicious sauce - love the tangy, sweet and spicy flavors that all compliment each other to make this a most unique BBQ sauce. Okay, I did leave out the red chilies because I wasn't quite sure which ones to use and I scaled back the sambal oelek by one tbsp. and the sauce still had a nice bite for our tastes. Can't wait to use this sauce on my 4th of July bbq'd meat that we made - brisket, ribs and sausage. Will definitely make this sauce again as there are no limits to what it can be used on. Made for Everyday is a Holiday, July, 2012.

      I had high hopes for this sauce. I used tamarind concentrate and the resulting sauce was too bitter. Maybe tamarind pulp would have done better.
