"I ran out of storebought BBQ sauce and googled this site and decided to try it. Mercy! This is the absolute best BBQ sauce I've ever made! It made a large enough batch that I even canned it so we can have it on hand all the time! I've sent this site to my daughter and sister so they can try it!Thank you for sharing!"

"Well, I made recipe again and this bbq sauce is still excellent. Though not the thick sauce, it's consistancy is good because it sticks to your meats. It is not really spicy."
