"I cut the ketchup to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cup of apple cider and increased the tomato paste to 3 tbl. What I got was a real nice 'mop sauce' for our grilled chicken. The recipe listed is a good standard BBQ sauce that is mild enough to serve to everyone without being spicy. Next weekend we will be smoking a Butt and I will use this mop again during the Texas Crutch portion and after shredding."

"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."

"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 (https://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!"
