This sauce is a sweet, tangy addition to any barbecue. Blueberries are a true flavor of Maine. Enjoy!

I didn't put in the full onion amount because we don't like heavy onion taste...but that could have made a difference with making it taste more like bbq sauce, because it was very mild in that regard. Still very good though. Will make again and play around with the ingredients.

Excellent on pork chops! This is a really tasty barbeque sauce, but burns easily so delay brushing on meat until 1-2 minutes prior to turning or removing from grill. I used 1/2 cup brown sugar in place of maple syrup because I didn't have any. I also used white pepper because I love it. I ended up with a deliciously thick amazing sauce.

This sounded like the perfect way to use some extra bluedberries, but this sauce tastes neither like blueberries nor bbq sauce. We tried it plain as a dipping sauce, baked onto chicken and fish (it was best on chicken) and while we love all the ingrediants it just didn't live up to the flavor profile I thought it would have
