    Made it as recipe stated but with twice mustard and two extra of each teaspoon, made it to glaze a gammon joint over night. Extremely tasty. Will experiment with spicing it up a bit.  -  01 Jun 2017


    The idea of a mustard BBQ sauce really only hits home in South Carolina and Northern GA. It is very popular down there and is what I grew up on. This recipe is a little different, we use apple cider vinegar and less honey  -  22 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great base sauce or paint for pork, especially ribs or pulled pork sandwiches. My personal taste leans towards something with more bite, so I add a hint of Worchestershire saucea, garlic powder, cayenne and chipotle pepper. The smoky flavor of the chipotle really accents the mustard/vinegar base!  -  04 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
