Mississippi Sweet and Sour Barbeque Sauce

Mississippi Sweet and Sour Barbeque Sauce

TasteKing 2

"A sweet and sour version of barbeque sauce for shrimp, pork, and chicken. This sauce is very potent, so use sparingly as a baste while cooking shrimp, pork, and chicken. To make into a dipping barbeque sauce increase the amount of brown sugar to 1 cup and use white vinegar instead of apple cider vinegar."

This recipe is excellent!! I have used it on pork, chicken and hamburgers. My grandson is allergic to corn syrup, so I left it out and added just a bit more brown sugar and molasses. VERY GOOD. This is the only bbq sauce I have made that he has liked. ENJOY


I didn't have whiskey, but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Absolutely amazing!!! This will make me abandon (for a while) a Kansas City Style BBQ recipe I've used for the past 5 years! Bravo!


This is an excellent recipe...and easy to substitute things to change up flavors slightly...love this!
