Possum's No-Cook BBQ Sauce

"Sweet and tangy, great on ribs, steaks, chicken, you name it! The only time it takes to make this is the time to find the ingredients and mix them into a bowl. This recipe was in its original form one of Emeril's barbecue sauces as seen on his TV show. It's since been tweaked, perhaps not to perfection, but to my & my family's taste."

    Great option when you're short on time. I spiced it up with a bit of allspice and used it on [url]http://www.food.com/recipe/homemade-seitan-barbecue-bbq-ribs-vegan-295097[/url]. Fantastic! May play around with the spices in the future.

    I subbed dark corn syrup for the brown sugar, diced garlic for the powder, spicy brown for the dijon, and skipped the red pepper altogether. It was very tangy but completely delicious. I usually buy my BBQ sauce but you could talk me into preparing this and keeping it in the fridge instead.

    I wouldn't say this is amazing sauce, but it is tasty, fast and easy and I will definitely make again. I added smoked paprika for extra flavour

    You totally saved dinner tonight! I planned on making BBQ chicken with cheddar cheese & bacon on top. We recently found out DD is allergic to high fructose corn syrup & liquid smoke flavor--they're in EVERY bottle of bbq sauce in the house. She says this tastes better anyway & I agree. So easy too!!! THANK YOU for the keeper!!!!

    So easy yet full of flavor. Loved the tangy taste. Used this while grilling hamburgers. Gave the burgers a great flavor. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for PAC Fall '08
