Karen's Story

My mother always used this recipe for her ribs and chicken. It was always wonderful and always got rave reviews. I never remember a time she made bar-b-que ribs and chicken that she used bottled sauce. She always made her own sauce and we loved it!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
We love this sauce! It is on the sweet side, so we'lI add up to 1/2 cup of vinegar at times depending on the taste of our guests. Terrific on chicken!
