This is a delicious Texas stye barbecue sauce, for chicken, ribs, wings, or brisket. It will please every-body's palate when severing to a crowd. If you know that everyone likes it spicy, then by all means add some Texas Pete (or your favorite hot sauce), chilies, or chili powder. This is versatile, quick, easy, and made with ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Easily doubled, tripled......COOKS NOTE: If you substitute the vinegar with distilled white or cider, start with one tablespoon and add more to suit your taste. This makes a wonderful sticky glaze for your grilled ribs and chicken. Baste meat with sauce during the last 5 minutes of grilling time and cook until glazed, turning frequently to prevent burning. You can also wrap cooked meat in foil with some sauce and finish on grill or in the oven. Lip smacking good.
