My son and I decided that our smoked barbeque ribs were great and deserved a great sauce. We each chose what we thought would be the best homemade sauce. I chose your recipe and was hands down the winner. This recipe, when strained, has a very deep rich appearance with flavor to match. Thank you for this easy to make winner.
I made this up yesterday and now I'm just waiting for my chili-head son-in-law to come over and sample it. I wimped out and used only one chipotle pepper and even scraped out the seeds. Didn't have any Jim Beam so I used Southern Comfort. It is sweet, tangy with a little bit of warmth left in the mouth. I call it "delicious"! My SIL called the last BBQ chicken I cooked great, but just wait until he tastes this!
