    I tweak it a little by only putting one beef cube instead of 2. I personally think it’s matches TGI

    This is just, plain nasty.

    Everyone has different opinions about this sauce but all i can say is that this is some good sh#t, lol!!! When we first used it we grilled the chicken on the charcoal bbq and applied the sauce at the end. Man...the smoked hickory taste along with the sauce reminded me of "Sonny's Chicken" Today I'm doing the chicken in the oven and applying the sauce. Adding a side of white rice and seasoned green beans will make a pleasant presentation for my family's dinner :)

    Actually, This recipe really is the original Jack Daniels Sauce. I have been making this for years, long before TGIF ever did. They changed the recipe. This one is my favorite as I am not into all the chunky stuff. However, I am pretty sure this is the first sauce that TGIF made, too. I remember because I was a little angry that they claimed it as their own, when it wasn't. I was making this in the late 80's early 90's.
