I have made this sauce for many years and absolutely love it. I use ground polish mustard instead of the yellow stuff and sometimes crushed red tomatoes instead of tomato paste when I can grab them out of the garden. The added benefit of this sauce is that it works equally well on chicken and pork. It's also great on meats that have been smoked and smoked and smoked. You get the idea.
I have used this recipe of barbecue sauce for over twenty years and I love it! Each time I make it it is always great tasteing. I use it as a dipping sause on most things. I prefer it a little more heat a little more spicy so I add more crushed peppers.
I used less liquid smoke and it still was mildly smokey like we all like it. Very good sauce for our chicken cooked on the grill!
I never made bbq sauce before, and now that I did, this one tasted just like I thought it should. We really enjoyed it, with deep beefy, tangy and sweet flavors. Unfortunately there is no liquid smoke available here in Finland, as far as I know, so had to skip it. I am confident that would have added that WOW aspect to this sauce.
Have been using this sauce for years.Instead of putting sauce on chicken while cooking dip the chicken in this sauce as you are eating it.I don't use the liquid smoke.
