Reviews for Texas-Style BBQ Sauce
"This sauce is really good. It wasn't spicy, so I added 1 teaspoon of Cheyenne pepper to give it a little zip. It was spicy enough for me, but my husband would have liked more spice. We used the sauce on grilled wings."
"This recipe was great! It was sweeter than it was spicy so my 7 year old ate it & loved it!!! Definitely keep this recipe!"
"I've never made my own bbq sauce, and the sweet-sour of this looked good. I used it in the BBQ chicken Sliders recipe from the April/May 2013 issue (http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/BBQ-chicken-Sliders?cpi=1&sort=2). Oh. My. Word. is this some delicious sauce. This will definitely become a regular thing in our house. Yum!"
