I really like this recipe, it is really quick, and I have made it several times. I add stuff though, some of the things I might throw in are: a 1/2 bottle or so of purchased honey barbeque sauce, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, a little brown sugar, and a dash of chili powder. It always comes out good.

Having no ingredients for BBQ sauce and a brisket on the smoker, I turned to this site and found this recipe. It's definitely a good recipe. I used a generic store brand cola but spiced it up with a little more brown sugar and the juice from half a lemon. I also made another sauce and let the family pick. This one was the better of the two.

Good and easy. Sweet but great on hot dogs with sauerkraut. I added 3 garlic cloves instead of the powder.

This was a TERRIFIC recipe for BBQ sauce. I ran out of BBQ sauce for our steaks for dinner one night and had to come up with something quick...well..this did the trick for sure. Gotta admit, the Coke was WEIRD but .. it was real tasty and amazingly easy. I'd definitely do it again.

This recipe is easy and tasty! To cut calories I used diet coke instead of regular soda. It came out great!

We used this on grilled chicken and it came out really good. I like some other reviewer's suggestion to add liquid smoke, although I didn't do it this time, I will the next time I make it. This is a really simple and good recipe.
