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.

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

Altered ingredient amounts. This is a fantastic receipe for bbq sauce and I've had loads of complements whenever I've served it. I basically substituted the tomato ketchup for 500g passata and quadrupled the amounts to compensate. I also added smoked paprika and used Muscovado sugar ala Batfloke tweak and I think that the sauce definately benefits from this. I basically wanted a sauce to cook pancetta wrapped chicken breasts stuffed with goats cheese in, hence the larger quantity being required. I have however also served it at BBQ's as a dipping/pouring sauce. Definately a receipe that I'll be using again and again :o)

looks good, but you missed the liquid smoke which i reckon is crucial. in any case, you should try the curry barbecue sauce (or cbq) and you will never go back to ordinary barbecue again

Used different ingredients. I substituted mustard powder for Chinese 5 spice, it gives a nice edge for oriental cooking xx

Used different ingredients. Firstly, thanks for this fantastically simple, TASTY and quick recipe! I didn't change much. I essentially tripled the amounts of the ingredients so I had more sauce (obvious) but this made the acidity more prominent so I increased the proportion of sugar in this recipe - it sorted the acidity quick as a flash. The one thing I actually changed was the sugar. I used Dark Muscovado rather than soft brown. OK, they're much the same, but the muscovado has a slightly different texture, is stickier and is an unrefined cane so is not quite as bad. Maybe a minor difference but, I think, one with a big result. The one thing I added was ground smoked paprika. I started off by matching the amount of this to the amount of mustard powder, but then ended up adding a touch more paprika than mustard. One thing I wouldn't change is the hot sauce. Tabasco is fine but I think that another pepper-based hot-sauce may well be too fiery. Again, thanks for a fantastic recipe, but as with all cooking it's personal taste, and this is mine ;-)

Altered amounts and added quite a bit more Worcestershire sauce. Think it would be better with some liquid smoke to mask the taste of ketchup.
