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!

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! The Test Kitchen
