Reviews for Dr Pepper BBQ Sauce
"Yes, mloffredo1, I think pineapple juice is a great substitute. I've used it as a substitute before with great results."
"I have a question, I know someone who is allergic to oranges, orange juice, etc. Would substituting Pineapple juice be a good idea? I'd like to have an opinion on this before I make it. Thank you."
"Loved it as is. What a great idea the Dr. Pepper is!"
"Shocked by all the great reviews. This sauce is very sweet. Too sweet. (Yuck)"
"Very good and similar to one I use, but I add cumin and onion powder to it."
"your Dr. pepper BBQ sauce is the BEST dam sauce I have ever had, dam good. thanks doylescott57@yahoo,com"
"I liked the recipe, I did not think it was thick enough for what I wanted so added cornstarch to thicken it up, worked great. I also add some hot sauce, not much. I tripled the batch and froze it."
"Fantastic BBQ sauce. I used it on a Boston Butt that I used for pulled pork BBQ. Everyone raved about it. This isn't too spicy or too sweet, it's just right there in the middle as a very flavorful mild BBQ sauce."
"My family was a little disappointed with this sauce. I have used Coke before in a recipe and it was great. This recipe was easy to make with simple ingredients but the flavor for us just wasn't there."
