Mississippi Sweet and Sour Barbeque Sauce

Mississippi Sweet and Sour Barbeque Sauce

TasteKing 2

"A sweet and sour version of barbeque sauce for shrimp, pork, and chicken. This sauce is very potent, so use sparingly as a baste while cooking shrimp, pork, and chicken. To make into a dipping barbeque sauce increase the amount of brown sugar to 1 cup and use white vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar."

This recipe is excellent!! I have used it on pork, chicken and hamburgers. My grandson is allergic to corn syrup, so I left it out and added just a bit more brown sugar and molasses. VERY GOO...
