This barbecue sauce is my own recipe that my whole family enjoys, especially my father. It's a quick and easy recipe that can be made ahead and refrigerated or used immediately. —Karene Donnay, Glencoe, Minnesota
Says Cliff Mays from St. Albans, West Virginia, "I liked this zippy sauce from the first taste, as have my guests. It's not a thick sauce, but it coats meats very well. I use it on grilled barbecue ribs...and it's great with ham."
“After looking for the perfect BBQ sauce for 12 years, I tried making my own. After many attempts, I hit on the magic combination. Everyone who's tried it agrees that it's a winner.”
—Phil Maine, Truckee, California
I've never cared that much for store bought barbecue sauce. I just like to make things myself from scratch including this spicy, deep red-brown sauce. You'll find it clings well when you slather it on grilled meat.Helena Georgette Mann, Sacramento, California

"Since visiting Jamaica, I've become a big fan of jerk chicken and fish," writes Lee Ann Odell from Boulder, Colorado.
"I came up with my own version of that zesty island flavoring especially for this contest. It's a great sauce for ribs, whether you're grilling them or making them in the oven. It makes me feel like I'm on vacation!"
