Very good, I omitted the hot sauce, as well as the cornstarch,water and butter. I cooked it very slowly and it became thick and sticky the house smelled sooooo.... good. At supper time all that could be heard was mmmmmm, lips smacking and fingers being licked (not that I approve of finger licking) but who would want to miss a drop. Now this if finger licking good!!! I had guests for supper and everyone wanted the recipe and my daughter who is a Bulls eyes lover said that this is much better I agree.
The taste of this sauce is very good, but after adding the butter, it turned way too thick and did not want to stick to the chicken on the grill. Great taste, but omit the butter you don't need it.
BRAVO!!! BRAVO!!! You ought to consider changing the name of this sauce to "The Best Dang Barbeque Sauce Ever".
We did cut the garlic in half and omitted the butter as a reviewer suggested. We also added a tsp of onion powder and half a tsp of celery seed. Don't be afraid of the Cajun Spice.. you could add more if you want spiceier...but it was just enough for all to enjoy.
I will definitely keep this resicpe and pass it along. I have been searching for a good barbexue sauce and this is DEFINITELY it!!!
I made the sauce though I left out the Cajun seasoning, because I have small children and it would have made it to hot for them, but it still tasted wonderful you could smell it through the whole house. Also following others advice I didn't completely omit the butter, I cut it down to a 1/4 cup and made it a thicker sauce like my husband likes....but it is plenty thick without it. Will be making again.
My wife and I really like this BBQ sauce recipe. It's refreshing to find a recipe that isn't vinegar based, without being too sweet. The one change that I make is to follow another's advice, and leave out the thickening agents (butter and corn starch). By simply simmering the sauce for an extra hour or so, you get the same thickness, and save on extras that you don't need.
I absolutely LOVED this barbecue sauce! I made a few slight changes: I only used 2 tsp. of garlic; I didn't have any molasses, so I used light corn syrup instead; omitted the Cajun seasoning; used Tabasco Chipotle sauce instead of the hot sauce. Yum!
I have prepared this sauce 5 times and my guests never get tired of it. I have personally tested 37 BBQ sauce recipes. This is the best BBQ sauce recipe out there... hands down.
I added 1/8 cup of fresh chopped cherries, 1 tsp liquid smoke and 2 TBS of onion flakes. Delicious.
