This is just a good recipe, wouldn't even rate it as a good copycat and the chef who claimed this to be the JD sauce is up in his gord! First and for most I have the JD sauce right here next to me as I just copied this one and wanted to compare the 2. The true JD sauce has a smoke flavoring to it, this recipe calls for none. The true is more of a BBQ ee flavor as this is very sweet yet bland in flavor. This is a good sauce and very simple to make, but don't get your hopes up. I knew the only way I could find out for sure is to get some from TGIF and I am glad I did. I will not give up on trying to mimic this, but I will rate this as 2 stars for effort alone.
