    I'm not even a big barbecue fan and this sauce is fantastic. Next time I eat chicken or ribs, I'm having this sauce again.

    This is unquestionably the best barbecue sauce I have ever had! I don't normally tend to think of BBQ on chicken (pork more often) but this sauce made me a convert! Found it is best when used on chicken grilled outside (and use lots of sauce).

    I'm sorry, Bev & Lee Lee, but this recipe did not turn out well for me. My chicken turned out tasting like chicken with ketchup on them. The sauce was way too sweet and, even when I tried to add some citrus to even out the sweet taste, it was too overpowering. My husband thought this was okay, but I don't think I'll make it again. Thanks, anyway! :)

    This was GREAT! I added in a chipotle because I wanted to use it for my steak. I loved it! I can't wait to try this on many other items. Thanks for posting!

    It was a little sweet for my liking but a good sauce all the same. My kids liked it. It was easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand.
