We have always used this recipe as well, and like Syrinx, I almost NEVER stick exactly to a recipe, but this one works, and if it ain't broke, don't fix it! We, however, do make one small omission - we don't add the sugar, but everything else we keep to the letter. You can always add some hot chili flakes or hot sauce to give it an extra kick, but I don't recall us ever doing so.

I got this recipe from our Weber barbecue book, and have been making it for a few years now without any modifications - unusual for me, as I seldom follow recipes to the letter. This sauce is lovely (although it smells rather acrid in the kitchen when you're cooking it!). We make this for most of our barbecues - and it is, in fact, the only way my husband will eat celery! (I do chop the celery extremely finely to make sure that he doesn't recognise the ingredient before he's tasted it). Very highly recommended, and seems to be very popular with everyone who tries it :-) Best served hot, we think, although it's pretty good cold, too :-)
