    I really like this recipe, it is really quick, and I have made it several times. I add stuff though, some of the things I might throw in are: a 1/2 bottle or so of purchased honey barbeque sauce, a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, a little brown sugar, and a dash of chili powder. It always comes out good.  -  04 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Good and easy. Sweet but great on hot dogs with sauerkraut. I added 3 garlic cloves instead of the powder.  -  06 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a TERRIFIC recipe for BBQ sauce. I ran out of BBQ sauce for our steaks for dinner one night and had to come up with something quick...well..this did the trick for sure. Gotta admit, the Coke was WEIRD but .. it was real tasty and amazingly easy. I'd definitely do it again.  -  07 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
