Too much water and my family thought it needed sugar. I would reduce water down and add brown sugar if I make again.

Had a good flavor, but like all the other BBQ recipes I have tried, the sauce comes out the consistency of water by the time the meat has cooked in it. I was hopeful that with the flour added to this sauce that wouldn't happen.
