This recipe was developed by a college buddy of mine. Now I make it often for family and friends. The sweet-hot sauce has a unique subtle orange flavor.

"So easy and so good! I try to avoid cooking with ONLY barbeque sauce, so this was a nice change. I didn't have any oranges on hand, so just used orange juice but it still tasted great. Will definitely make again."
