    25 minutes

    This is a barbecue sauce I have used for years, and it's great on any kind of meat. Be careful though, this one's spicy.

    I loved this sauce. Mistake was that I made it to go with ribs. It is more a sauce for bullued pork or chopped beef. Very tasty though. Simple ingredients. I'll make some pulled pork next week to do it right.  -  28 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was fantastic on pulled pork sandwiches. My family licked up every last drop.  -  03 Jan 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Great sauce! I experimented with it, added brown sugar, bbq sauce, smoke marinade. Lots of vinegar is the key.  -  14 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
