Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This BBQ sauce has just the right bite. It definitely has some heat for those who like it ... but not enough to scare others away.

green onions, chopped
1/2 c
Vlasic hot pepper rings, chopped and 2 tablespoons juice
2 bottle
Kraft hickory smoke bbq sauce
1 3/4 c
packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp
French's prepared yellow mustard
1 tsp
garlic powder
2 tsp
ground black pepper
4 tsp
tabasco sauce
8 oz

Directions Step-By-Step

In a deep saucepan, sauté both types of onions in a little olive oil until tender over medium-high heat.
