Really great recipe. For those who thought it was too hot, then read the recipe first. 1 tablespoon of red pepper would equal hot stuff!! NEways, I used it on ribs, burgers and hot dogs and had a little left so I dipped some chips in it. Could not get enough of this!!

This is seriously HOT sauce, not at all for kids (and I even cut back on the pepper!) I haven't ever eaten sauce in Georgia, but I doubt that it is this hot. But if you are looking for a sauce that tastes like vinegar on fire than you'll like this...

This is just like the sauce my Uncle from Georgia used to make. I did cut back on the red pepper, though.

I changed the sugar to Splenda sugar free..Hubby can't have sugar.. And it was very low carb. And Sooooo GOOD!!!

This is definately not one of your sweet ketchup based sauces. If you like the carolina vinegar sauces, you'll like this one. I ran out of tomato paste so I ended up using tomato sauce and cooked it down, also cut down on the red pepper by half and it was still plenty hot.

You need to warn that this makes a very spicy hot barbecue sauce.

With certain modifications, this is an excellent sauce: we cut the red pepper by a third, and increased all of the other spices. We still found that the tomato paste flavor was overwhelming, so we tamed it by adding a little more sugar (but not much, this is not supposed to be a sweet recipe!), a little bit of spicy mustard, and a splash of bourbon. The flavors came together very, very well.

Very easy recipe, but a little too spicy for me. I didn't have the red pepper and substitued cajun instead...I think I won't do that next time. Would recommend!
