"So wiith my mother in law visitig for a week i searched for a different BBQ sauce to make. Once i told them what i was making neither my wife or mother in law wanted anything to do with it.

Once done i continued on with my plan. Started grilling some chicken breasts and basting them with the sauce, Well i got them to eventually try it and it was a complete success. They loved it! Thank you for sharing the recipe."

"I will absolutely make this again, and again! What a unique ingredient for barbeque sauce! My dad grows rhubarb every summer. And, picking tangy rhubarb is a fond memory of mine! It doesn't disappoint in a barbeque sauce! Love it! I did however, omit the hot sauce. I would have loved the spicy kick, but my kids would not! I also placed the finished product into the food processor to grind the onions. Again, adapting it for the kids! Wonderful Recipe!"

"Great recipe! The rhubarb gives the sauce an added kick. I poached chicken breasts, then shredded them, covered with sauce and served as a lower fat version of barbecue sandwiches."

"This was an great with chicken as a sauce, I added some habano cayenne pepper to this and used with as a hot wing sauce. It had an equal balance of hot and sweet to it. I can't wait to try it with kaboobs."

"This sauce is amazing. I just "eyeballed" the ingredients so maybe added more ingredients then called for but loved it. I also added liquid smoke (about 1 tablespoon) and that, I think, was the extra that this sauce needed. I haven't tried canning this but I think you could do it because there is plenty of acid in it. I was thinking of canning it myself :)"
