"It was way too "vinegary' for me! I counter-balanced that with some baking soda and then it cam out really nice. I also added a bit of liquid smoke. I will make it again but I will half the vinegar amount. (it was apple cider vinegar). We used it on our grilled pork chops. There were none left, so it wasn't horrible!! ;)"

"I made this sauce for pork chops. I substituted "vinegar" with cider vinegar and it was so tasty! Big hit with the entire family. I was able to make the sauce ahead of time and then put it in the fridge until I was ready to cook the pork chops. I ended up having the cook the pork chops longer than 20 minutes, but using a thermometer helped me determine when they were done (160 degrees)."
