    Excellent sauce. I did do a couple changes. I used honey instead of molasses, reduced the oil by half, and I cooked it down for several minutes so it thickened and the sugar dissolved. It was amazing on oven roasted chicken drumsticks.  -  07 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very Tasty! Just the right amount of sweet & spice. I cut The recipe in half, & added 1 TBLS each of instant chopped onion, and bottled minced garlic. I also simmered it on the stove for 10-15 min. to combine flavors, & to thicken it, as mentioned by a previous reviewer.  -  23 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
