This is the BEST barbecue sauce I've ever tasted! I use it for all my barbecue meals! I made the chicken in the oven for this recipe and turned out to die for! Even my pickiest eater couldn't get enough of this awesome chicken. Keep this recipe handy!

This recipe was delicious, but I left the sugar out completely and used 1/2 cup of honey instead. Perfect combination for my family's tastebuds!
