    This is the best sauce ive ever had becaused i made it my own. Added ground mustard just a bit. Added liquid smoke just a dash. Added Mrs. Renfroses ghost pepper barbacue sauce for heat. Taste this before you add it because its hot but great flavor.. Then a splash of coke. Unreal!!
    A little too sweet for me

    This was a great recipe. I did tweak it a little bit by adding smoked paprika, and maple syrup (I ran out of honey), and extra apple cider vinegar. I didn't measure the spices I just added till it smelled and tasted right . It was a wonderful recipe to use as a base.

    like the taste, the molasses is really strong . sigh. but wish i knew how to cut out the strong taste of the molasses .

    I really enjoyed the recipe. The only thing is I modified a few things such As add 2 tablespoons of acv instead of 4, carribean hot sauce and I added jack Daniels to the mix

    awesome!!! all my guests loved it! however I did cut the total sugar amount in half and added a tad more onion/garlic/cumin powder.

    pretty easy to make. We added it to a pulled pork dish we made and it tasted delicious. It was quite strong in taste but yummy none the less.
