If you use the "clasic ketchup" recipe provided on this website instead of regular ketsup it cuts way down on the sugar and carbs. The hoisin sause also contains sugar so I use 1 tab of it. I did not use the rum - instead I used 1/2 cup crushed pineapple.

The instructions are confusing in this recipe. It calls for 1/2 cup spiced rum "divided," but the instructions just say to mix the rum (no qty?) into the other ingredients, so I added all of it. But then at the end it says to "stir in remaining rum"…what remaining rum?? I don't know, I just added another splash of rum at the end. The flavor is intense, interesting (different), and was tasty on grilled bone-in chicken breasts.

I'll make it again. I only used a tiny pinch..probably only a fraction..of the cayenne it calls for & made up for it w/a much lighter "creole" seasoning as I'm SUPER touchy about spiciness (I like FLAVOR, *NOT* hot-spicy!). I also used real brown sugar (stevia) instead of splenda b/c I like my body & I'd rather not poison it w/anything fake..but that's a personal choice.
