Dreamland BBQ Sauce (Dreamgoddess's Copycat Version)

Dreamland BBQ Sauce (Dreamgoddess's Copycat Version) created by Chef floWer

Dreamland BBQ...one of THE best rib joints in the state of Alabama. They make ribs so delicious, it'll make you wanna cry! It's worth every minute of the two hour drive from my house just to eat their ribs, not to mention the plate of Sunbeam bread and bowl of barbecue sauce (for dipping the bread in, of course!) that's brought to the table when you first arrive. I found a copycat recipe (which was an excellent recipe, by the way)for their famous sauce on another website, but I thought it needed just a bit of tweaking. I think Dreamland's sauce has more of a vinegar taste to it and it is definitely hotter than the copycat recipe. This is my version of the copycat recipe that I've tweaked a bit to taste more (in my humble opinion) like Dreamland's original sauce. This recipe makes a very thin bbq sauce.

    This sauce has way to much tomato in it. We followed it just like the directions, even let it set for two days in the fridge and the tomato taste was still over powering. This sauce is a little pricey to make cause of the spices, but we finally saved it by adding a few adjustments. Good try though!

    This was not Dreamalnd. Not even close. It didn't taste good at all and I followed it to the "T". Very disappointed.

    This recipe is terrible!!! It tastes absolutely NOTHING like the dreamland bbq sauce. I'm actually not blaming dreamgoddess, because there are a bunch of very similar recipes online...but holy goodness....way off. To be honest...not only does it not taste like dreamland sauce...it just tastes bad.
