"YUM! Why don't we always make BBQ sauce instead of buying it?

I pan-fried the onions first in a bit of oil until they were tender, before adding to the sauce. Only used half the amount of Tabasco sauce, and next time wouldn't use any - just a bit too hot for my liking. Went well over grilled pork tenderloin and was easy to make."

"I totally agree with thishungering. I used the full amount of liquid smoke and 1 heaping tsp onion powder instead of chopped onion. We like spicy food so I would either add more hot pepper sauce next time or add a tsp of cayenne. I also used it on pork ribs I had cooked in a slow cooker all day and shredded. It was awesome! Definitely a keeper."

"Love this sauce! Tastes so much better than bottled BBQ sauce. Used it to make shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches, everyone loved them!"
