    Fantastic recipe! I'd been using the 'Coca Cola' barbecue sauce recipe for a while, but was rather 'meh' with the results. This one is amazing though! I quadrupled the quantities as I cook for a nursing home and it went down a storm. I used it as a dip rather than a marinade and as such, I thickened it a touch at the simmering stage by adding some cornflour mixed with cold water. When it had cooled, I was having staff keep popping into the kitchen to try it! Have bookmarked it and it's gonna be a regular feature on my menu. - 27 Jan 2011


    i made this and put it on a pizza instead of the normal tomato sauce, it turned out very well and i would definately recommed it - 12 Jan 2011


    Altered ingredient amounts. I found the sauce a tiny bit tart when I first tried it so added and additional 1/2 tablespoon of sugar - took the edge off without altering the essential taste. Brilliant - 16 Apr 2011
