Tony Roma's Carolina Honey BBQ Sauce

Tony Roma's Carolina Honey BBQ Sauce created by flower7

This is a wonderful honey bbq sauce that we brush on pork spare ribs the last 15 minutes of cooking. It is a copycat recipe for the Tony Roma's restaurant sauce. Makes enough for 4 pounds of ribs. I was given this recipe by a friend was contacted by topsecretrecipes.com that it is their recipe.

    I know this is Todd Wilbur's Top Secret Recipe, but it has far too much vinegar in it. The first time I made this I reduced the vinegar to 2/3 c as suggested in reviews of various postings of this recipe. It was still over the top acidic from the vinegar. The amount of molasses also overpowers the delicate flavour of the honey. What I do now is use 1/4c apple cider vinegar, 1/4 c molasses & 1/4 c brown sugar, and leave the rest of the ingredients as noted. I also don't find that I need to simmer it for the noted length of time or it gets too thick.

    The most disgusting bbq sauce I have ever tasted. Do not waste your time. Tastes like vinegar and it made the house smell like it too. Nasty. Waste of $15 ribs and 4 hours of them cooking in the oven.

    This is wonderful! The flavors are perfectly balanced. I used hickory liquid smoke. Can't wait to find something to use this on! Thanks for the recipe! - Apr 20, 2008. Update: I ended up making some boneless pork ribs in the crockpot and shredding them up for sandwiches, with this for the sauce. Delicious! Thanks again!
