Mustard Barbecue Sauce

I liked this mustard BBQ sauce recipe from the first taste, as have my guests. It's not a thick sauce, but it coats meats very well. I use it on grilled barbecue ribs, and it's great with ham. —Cliff Mays, St Albans, West Virginia

    I used this on pulled pork barbecue. It's a very flavorful sauce, with a bit of tang from the mustard and vinegar, and very quick to throw together.

    Excellent sauce, I will definitely make again. I realized at the last minute that I did not have enough cayenne, so I ended up using about half & half cayenne and Frank's Red Hot Sauce. Very good on grilled ham slices.
