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."

"I used this on pulled pork barbecue. It's a very flavorful sauce, with a bit of tang from the mustard and vinegar, and very quick to throw together."

"Excellent sauce, I will definitely make again. I realized at the last minute that I did not have enough cayenne, so I ended up using about half & half cayenne and Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Very good on grilled ham slices."
