Barbeque sauce is a real taste-preference type of thing, and this one was too sweet for us. Followed the recipe to the letter, tasted it, and then made adjustments to suit our personal taste. Thought the molasses dominated way too much, so I would cut that back in the future as well as the sugar. Wanted more of a pop of spicy flavor, so I added a healthy dose of hot sauce (instead of more cayenne) which brought it up to speed for us. Seriously, I was expecting a sauce that had an Asian tang to it, but the hoisin and oyster sauces were lost IMO. Finally, the recipe doesn’t call for heating the sauce, and after stirring for a long time, the consistency still was granular, so I heated for a while allowing the sugar to dissolve. None of this is to discourage any of you from trying this recipe. Again, we all have different tastes, this one was a bit too sweet for us, but may be exactly what you are looking for. My rating is based on the tweaks I made.
