My dad loves to barbecue and this is his own creation. It's absolutely delicious and goes with a variety of meats. It makes a lot, but keeps well in the ice box and it's nice to have it on hand instead of store bought sauce.

Thank you Janis and Papa John! We enjoyed this a few weeks ago, and I must admit...it's better than the recipe my mother gave me years ago. It was a really nice change for us and we enjoyed the flavor a lot. This is worth making, without a doubt! Thanks again!
