West Indies Guava Barbecue Sauce

Recipe by Member 610488

This recipe is an adaptation of one by Sue L, which was made to recreate the sauce at the Bahama Breeze restaurant chain. I picked this up while working on the island of St. John, USVI.

Excellent sauce. The flavors worked very well together. I loved that it wasn't just an ordinary bbq sauce. You could really tell and taste the tropical difference. It made a huge batch. I separated a smaller amount into a bowl to use on our grilled chicken legs tonight, leaving plenty for future use. Thank you for posting! Made for the Soup-A-Stars during ZWT9
