I have made this recipe many times since it was first published. I prefer it to bought BBQ sauce. Family and friends love it. I have used it when BBQ the ribs as well.
I got this recipe out of the Halloween special magazine probably 5 or 6 years ago. I love this recipe, but my kids always complain when I make it. They prefer BBQ sauce... Boring!
