Jamaican BBQ Sauce

"This is one of my mom's tattered recipes from her well-used collection. It says 1998 and is from Heloise. Very nice sauce for chicken, ribs, or whatever. We had this at almost every family gathering by the grill. You can double the recipe and store in the refrigerator for up to one month. Cooking time is refrigeration time."

  1. I'm attempting to review this... again (the first time it did not post). Anyway, I made this a couple weeks ago, and finally got around to using it this past week. I marinated some chicken wings for a few hours in a baggie with 1/2 of the recipe, removed the wings to a sheet pan and then tossed the marinade portion away. While they were baking, I used the remainder of the sauce for basting. I was afraid of them possibly burning from the brown sugar, but they turned out great! The only thing I was a bit leery of was that the recipe called for tomato puree. Depending on which country you live in, it can be confusing. I used tomato sauce, since it already called for catsup. I think that is correct. It worked, either way. Thanks for posting. (Made for Football Pool Week 4 win)
  2. This was great! I added it to broiled chicken breasts. Then used it as a dipping sauce. I have to admit that I was not a big fan of Accent (in fact I had to borrow some from my son), but I now have a container in my pantry. Made for week 11 Football Pool 2009.
  3. Great on shrimp on the grill!
  4. Thanks westtextazzy! This was quite a nice sauce- I think it would make a great marinade. Will hopefully make again. I followed the recipe very closely. Made for the Genies of Gourmet, Zingo, ZWT5.
  5. This was delicious! As noted by other reviewers, it's a thinner sauce; the vinegar gives it a nice, zippy character. We had it on grilled chicken sprinkled with jerk seasoning, and it was great. Made by a Saucy Senorita for ZWT5.
