Wanted grilled BBQ chicken, didn't have BBQ sauce, but had the ingredients for this. I've made BBQ sauce before, but never from a recipe...just added things til it tasted right. This is FAR better than any attempt I've ever made! Made 1/2 batch, used apple cider vinegar for most of the red wine vinegar about a 2:1 ratio. Did half honey and half molasses. Subbed celery salt for celery seed. Also added about a TSP or 2 of light corn syrup- I've found that gives BBQ sauce a nice 'shine'. Simmered 20-30 mins. Once cooled, I funneled it into an old ketchup squeezy bottle. This sauce is the perfect mix of BBQ flavors...smoky, tangy and sweet with a kick... A little thin though. Made FANTASTIC Grilled chicken breasts. I don't think I'll ever buy BBQ sauce again, and next time I'll make the full amount! UPDATE: I wanted to do a whole BBQ chicken on the grill- put bird in a roasting pan, doused in this sauce and put the pan on the grill for 2-1/2 hrs, basting throughout. AWESOME chicken and the leftovers made the BEST chicken salad EVER with black beans, corn and cumin/chili powder/mayo/chive sour cream 'sauce'. The BBQ sauce flavor really came through in the chicken- can't wait to do it again! ***3RD REVIEW: Made full recipe amount & added 1TS cornstarch + 1TB h20 mixed, 1/2 molasses 1/2 honey, simmered 2 hrs...PERFECTION!!! Nice & thick, PERFECT flavor. Big Al, YOU ROCK!
