    I was making ribs and realized I didn't have any BBQ sauce. I picked this one out because it looked tasty, and it didn't let me down. My husband was shocked that I made it myself, and I have to say, I like it better than bottled sauce. Finger licking good! (we used it on pork ribs)  -  17 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was really really good! BUT, if you're looking for the genuine "BBQ" flavor- this isn't really that- but me and my hubby LOVED it. Tastes so good on out hamburgers. It's a definate keeper! (didn't have a lemon, so I used 1 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice.) Oh and I used 2 cloves of minced garlic instead of powder as I LOVE garlic.  -  29 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really good. My husband couldn't tell it didn't come out of a bottle. This was a super easy recipe that was great because I had all the ingredients on hand. I will keep in mind for the next time I want bbqed chicken.  -  10 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
