Caribbean BBQ Sauce

Recipe by  

"This is the most WONDERFUL BBQ sauce recipe I know. It is different (sort of), and the black rum cannot be substituted by another type of rum. It ruins the taste."

I made this and used it as a sauce over pulled pork for a Caribbean dinner party this past weekend and everyone LOVED it. My guests all took the leftovers home with them they loved it so much.

Ok, I was born in the caribbean and I decided to try this recipe but it was not what I expected. First the smell was great but it was not thick like bbq sauce. I ended up putting some store bought bbq sauce in it 'cause it look ribs stew. Also the sauce was very sweet so maybe this could be for those with sweet tooths. Either way don't expect regular bbq sauce here.

Very tasty sauce for pork, but I added some pineapple and coconut to the sauce during the cooking process and then strained it before brushing it on the meat and tastes even more tropical. Try it!!!!

This was very good! We used this on ribeyes on the grill because I was tired of the same old same old. Even my dad, who is the worst person in the house to feed, thoroughly enjoyed it. We found it was best when it was brushed on the meat as the meat is cooking instead of just pouring it on after. Very different flavor, very good. (BTW- I DIDN'T use black rum, I used gold, and it was still tasty! Oh, and a touch of coconut rum too.)

Holy ! The fragrance of this alone is beautiful. I was skeptical but it came out very well. I felt like I should add some ice cream to this or something it smelled so good.

This sauce was very yummy. I put it on chicken and my husband was skeptical but it was very good.

I made this sauce and used it on shrimp kabobs with pineapple and green pepper chunks on the skewers. It was an amazing flavor to experience.
