My family absolutely loved this BBQ sauce! It was so simple yet the flavors were quite complex. I did go easy on the cayenne and pepper since we are wimpy when it comes to spiciness, but otherwise I didn't change a thing because it's perfect. Thank you Don for sharing your wonderful recipes! Cheers!


I have been making this recipe for over a year and it has become our favorite. I normally say that I don't like much sweetness in my sauces so I was skeptical about the amount of sugar and honey. However, this just tasted great. Very flavorful and I would say complex, though I may be misusing the term. I used 2 small roasted serrano peppers the first time and that was a nice amount of heat without going too far over the edge. Since then I have made it with the red chile that I have available and it was hotter than the serranos. I'm not sure what kind they are, but it's now what I buy. We had a sauce "tasting" and this one was the winner. We had it on country style ribs and have enough left to try on some other things. Now we use it on everything, including bbq sandwiches. The heat builds quite a bit on a sandwich, but we like that. Thanks, Don!


I admit I was a skeptic when I saw Red wine lemon? No mustard or worcestshire? I was wrong! This is the best and so easy to make! I followed this recipe to a T. This was finger lickin good and will be our go to from now on! Thanks for a wonderful recipe.
