I thought this tasted too much like ketchup and not bbq sauce. I ended up adding liquid smoke, molasses, steak sauce, and whisky in order to save the batch. It wasn't too bad after that, but I definately won't use this reciepe again.

I wanted to make oven baked BBQ chicken, and my husband hates store-bought BBQ sauce. I coated the chicken with this recipe, and he ate it up! It was good before I put in on the chicken, but seemed to taste even better once it was baked for an hour.

I was looking for something super easy, that I could make with stuff that I had on hand. This fit the bill, and was super good too!!! Quick, easy and tasty

Very easy recipe to prepare. We used this over pulled pork tonight. This recipe is on the tart side, not sweet at all since there is no brown sugar, honey or molasses in it. We liked it and I will make this again.

I typed in quick and easy BBQ sauce to make pulled pork sandwiches with leftover pork loin. I chose this recipe because my husband much prefers sour to sweet. I added 1/4 cup vinegar and changed nothing else. We couldn't wait to eat as the aroma while simmering was fabulous! So easy and all ingredients on hand. I will never buy store bought sauce again. Thanks Grandpa Crotts!

Tried it and sed it as a base and added to it. Molasses, more worcestershire sauce and some brown sugar and some jameson whiskey- it doesn't have a full bodied flavor and could use some smoke flavor but once I doctored it up it was good.
