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
